Hey lads, I'm moving over to England from Ireland for Phase 1 in a few weeks time. I have to set up a bank account beforehand, as far as I know. Anyway, I was thinking that it'd be prudent to set up a savings account of sorts, so that I can send ~35/40% of my wages into it by standing order each month. So, if anyone could help; 1) Will I need a UK address to open a bank account? I've heard that if I go to Northern Ireland I can open one there with my Dublin address, is this true? 2) Can anyone recommend a savings account option? I'm thinking of between 2-4 years worth of saving, and I won't want to touch it before then. Thanks arrse!
