Make sure you give them plenty of notice!
When we went to a Marbella bank to cash a cheque for 6000 euros, they said we had to come back the next day as, due to some recent robberies, they don’t keep overmuch cash (?!). They said we should have given them 24 hours notice……
After a lot of pushing and pulling, they agreed to pay us if we came back nearer closing time that day, and if they had enough cash, they would pay us.
We did finally get our cash that day but we felt like we were trying to cash a cheque for 6 million!
