It depends on which route you use.

I always stay at the Ibis Hotel in Zaragoza after crossing the Pyrenees from Pau. It's right in the City centre by the river with wonderful views of the Basilica. You can then walk your dogs from the hotel along the river path and the parks.

Thread: Calais to Calahonda

I started a reply to this topic by trying to assist the OP who wants to rent in Spain and by referring to bank transactions involving France and Spain within the Eurozone as being free of charge with French banks having equal status in Spain.

It is you who have gone off topic and enlarged the subject giving us the dubious benefit of your own experience, mentioning British OAP's  pensions and irrelevantly beginning to discuss large Sterling property transactions between UK and Spain and informing us how much they cost you. 

The limit for free SEPA transactions is currently €15k. More than sufficient I suspect for the OP to rent for 3 months, even in Catalonia.

The OP does not need an NIE to rent a property in Spain for this period. The utilities will remain in the property owners title and form part of the contract arrangement. Transferring utility titles costs in excess of €900.

Windtalker your avatar is so appropriate. I think you simply like an argument. Have you not heard of SEPA?

As of November 21, 2017, bank transfers will be immediate and free for users who have bank accounts within the European Union. The European Central Bank (ECB) had planned to introduce the TIPS (Target Instant Payment Settlement) system by November 2018 but it will finally be launched a year earlier.

be. Brussels Express.


SEPA (Single European Payment Area) Funds Transfers enable you to makepayments in Euros fee-free to anywhere within the Single European Payment Area. SEPA Funds Transfers are available across 32 countries in and around Europe.

It is against the law for EU banks to charge transaction charges between Eurozone banks. I transfer money all the time between French and Spanish banks without cost. It's one of the great benefits of living in the Eurozone.

Of course if you use Sterling charges always apply.

It would depend on the owner of the property the OP wishes to rent. Spanish institutions such as bank that rent for 3 years will always require proof of income. However if the rental is short term most private owners I suspect would not ask for proof of income. A deposit will of course always be charged.

To open a Spanish bank account an NIE is usually required but an address in France or anywhere else is normally accepted.

Under European Union banking rules geographical or national borders don't exist. A French bank is just as valid in Spain as a Spanish bank. I am sure you won't have any difficulties renting for the period you want with or without employment proof.
