Trying to open a bank account in Bodrum

Looks like we will be struggling to open a bank account next time we come over if my friends experience this visit is anything to go by

This is what she wrote to me

That sounds interesting! Despite trying to open a bank account with four banks between 11am and 5pm we were unsuccessful!
At Yapi Kredi Bank at two mins to 5pm closing time we were told our Council Tax wasn't sufficient. They need to see a utility bill probably for an individual apartment. At Ak Bank we couldn't open a joint account and it needs to be used regularly. At HSBC we were told we would have to put money in regularly and pay bills so they want people to invest in the country. Another bank-Hali Bank just were not intersted. We may return to Garanti Bank tomorrow. Hard work on a very hot day 35degrees!!

Problem we both have is that we donít receive utility bills for our apartments at the moment

Any ideas? Iíve heard there is an Isbank in London so may try phoning them tomorrow

Re: Trying to open a bank account in Bodrum

My friends who are in Bodrum at the moment have taken tapu, latest council tax receipts, tax numbers and passports as well as utility bills from the U.K. that we were told were needed when we tried last year. It’s becoming really difficult and frustrating

Re: Trying to open a bank account in Bodrum

Owena, with what you've stated they have ,they should be able to open an account at the Deniz Bank in Ataturk street Bodrum. Walk down from the bus station,turn left into Aturturk street & the bank is 2nd building down on the right hand side.

Walk to near the rear of the bank,go up the stairs and see BAHA she sits on the right side of the office.tall girl with striking features ,she speaks perfect English
Tell her ''Mr Martin'' sent you..lol...
