We’re off to the States, East to West, and I have lots of credit cards etc. but have a problem. We used to have a Citibank account based in the UK but accessible in the States so that we could draw dollars out of ATMs. They are about to close it because we are not rich enough to warrant their business.
I am about to transfer about $3000 from that account to a UK Barclays US$ account as a temporary measure. That means I can withdraw dollars in the UK but what I really want to do is to pay it into some account that I can draw on when we are in the States. I can’t open a US bank account (not a resident, no social security number etc). Any ideas? Large bum bag?
