Where should I setup a bank account in Katwijk?

Answer this Question

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

"Expats considering retirement in Katwijk should be aware of several important factors. Firstly, they should understand the cost of living, which can be higher than in other countries, especially when it comes to housing and healthcare. They should also be aware of the Dutch healthcare system, which is mandatory for all residents and offers high-quality care, but can be expensive. Language can be a barrier for some expats, as while many Dutch people speak English, all official documents and many services are in Dutch. Therefore, learning the language can be beneficial. The Netherlands has a temperate maritime climate, with mild summers and cool winters, which may be a change for those used to warmer climates. The Dutch are known for their directness in communication, which can sometimes be perceived as blunt or rude by foreigners. Understanding this cultural difference can help in adjusting to social interactions. Public transportation in the Netherlands is efficient and reliable, and many people also use bicycles as their main mode of transport. Owning a car can be expensive due to high taxes and fuel costs. The Netherlands has a high standard of living and is known for its strong emphasis on work-life balance, which can be a positive aspect for retirees. However, it's also important to understand the Dutch tax system, which can be complex and may affect your pension or retirement savings. Finally, it's crucial to understand the immigration process, which includes obtaining a residence permit. This process can be lengthy and requires various documents, so it's best to start early and seek legal advice if necessary," explained one expat living in Katwijk, The Netherlands.
