Bank account for Summer Internship - London
I am a European student with an offer for a Summer in London.
I was wondering which bank account I should give to my firm to receive my salary.
Do I risk to get high fees, or disadvantageous GBP/EUR rate if I use my standard local account? Would you open a British account just for the Summer? May a GBP account at Revolut be the solution?
I already did an OC internshipin my country, and there was no problem for the salary as I was paid in euro by the local entity of my BB, but my food and taxi expenses were paid back by London entity and my bank took a 15€ flat fee on each transfer.
Very curious to hear about your experience if you did your SA in the past few years.
