We asked expats in Haarlem what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Expats considering retirement in Haarlem, should be aware that the cost of living can be high, especially when it comes to housing. They should also know that the healthcare system in the Netherlands is excellent, but it is mandatory to have health insurance. The official language is Dutch, so learning the language can be beneficial, although most locals speak English. The city is known for its cultural and historical attractions, including museums, art galleries, and churches, providing plenty of activities for retirees. Public transportation in Haarlem is efficient and reliable, making it easy to get around the city and travel to other parts of the country. The Netherlands has a high standard of living and is considered one of the safest countries in the world, which can be a significant factor for retirees. The Dutch are known for their directness, so it may take some time to adjust to their communication style. The weather in Haarlem can be quite cold and rainy, especially in the winter, so it's essential to be prepared for this. Retirees should also be aware of the Dutch tax system, which can be complex, and it may be beneficial to seek advice from a tax professional. Finally, it's important to note that the Netherlands has a social and progressive attitude towards issues like same-sex marriage and euthanasia," said another expat in Haarlem, The Netherlands.
