Im going to go with HSBC in Turkey. Because I have one in the UK, transfers are only £10 as opposed to transferring to any other a/c in Turkey which costs me £25.

As I live permanently in Turkey for my own peace of mind I choose to use HSBC they are worldwide and I just feel safer having my multi-millions of cash okay,okay, with a large bank rather than a smaller one like some of the Turkish ones!!

Their internet banking is good but so are the others. They pay one of the lowest rates of interest of anybank in Turkey.

Whoever you choose make sure that in the branch you use that your point of contact speaks English ( unless you are fluent in Turkish). I was happily with Vakif for a number of years and then the manager I dealt with left and there was nobody who spoke English.It quickly became extemely difficult to conduct business and I have transferred to HSBC.

Re: which bank would you recommend as we have 1 with ish and 1 with hsbc

I was with both banks also, my experience . . .

Isbank
Long queues, only a few staff speak English, do I need to go upstairs or downstairs? Website very little help, online service only half in English and a pain in the butt, ATM machine in Akbuk very basic and often no cash.
Result for me - Frustration.

HSBC
Virtually no queues, all staff speak English including the guard at the door who is very friendly & helpful, smart comfortable building with tellers and managers in clear view, canít get lost just walk through the main door, online service first class and plain English, telephone banking ok, ATM machine in Akbuk does almost everything and only been out of cash once in my experience.
Result for me - No Frustration.

Re: which bank would you recommend as we have 1 with ish and 1 with hsbc

There is one bank that used to be popular i think Finance Bank , but it should for now be avoided as it is owned by greece and greece is nearly broke !!! So those those banks could collapse , if i'm wrong about which bank i stand corrected ....Diane

I think you mean Finan Bank. All banks no matter who their owners are governed by Turkish regulations and guarentees.
