There are two types of local
bank accounts that would initially concern you in The
One is for residents and
the other is for non residents and this would be the first
account that you will need.
You can still use your own
bank, however, check that they can transfer money as required.
All of the non Canarian banks advertising here, do have
this facility and it may be worth opening an account with
them before you leave.
If you are unfortunate enough
to run out of money whilst in the Canary Islands, there
are a large number of Western
offices who can arrange IMMEDIATE transfers of money from
anywhere in the world.
