Paying bills in Poland

Rather than do a bank transfer from england to poland at £20 a throw - can I just pay several bills at any bank in poland. I have all the polish account details and am back in poland again in a few weeks.

Of course you can. Better still open a bank account at and pay them online via internet banking.

Thanks for the info. You are probably right about opening a bank account but I only have a few bills to pay, maybe twice a year, if that....

Also to credit the account I would have to pay in cash, although that is not a particular problem. I do not receive polish cheques or income, I just change sterling to PLN.

I could ask at a branch of bzwbk about opening an account!
Is that John Cleese in the top right corner !

I just change sterling to PLN.

In that case I hope you will not be changing too much as the GBP has dropped around 22% against the PLN over the past six months.

Tell me about................................
Was it 18 months ago and an exchange rate of 5.5 to the pound............
Any guesses if it's going to get much worse and stay there or get worse
and creep back up.
I have thought about changing a few thousand pounds worth and usuing over the next few years for all my trips over to poland.
Of course if we could guess correctly we would work in the money markets on a big enough bonus not too work about £2k..............
