Starting in late April, a whopping 140 branches of Santander will close their doors this year the bank has revealed. There will still be 614 branches in the UK, though that’s little help if it’s your local one which shuts.

It’s down to more and more customers using online banking and apps rather than visiting the high street – a trend we’ve seen over the last few years from many other banks. Apparently branches are disappearing at a rate of 60 every month. That’s huge!

It’s understandable in many ways. Santander say branch visits are down 23% over the last three years, but online transactions up by 99%. Still it’s a huge frustration for customers – especially those who don’t want to go digital. My parents experienced this last year when their local Natwest closed, following the likes of Barclays and Lloyds not long before.

What you can do if your bank closes

You’ve got a couple of options.

First you can switch bank to one which has a branch near you. Of course, there’s no guarantee that bank won’t close in the future, but you’re at least protected for a while – and you might be able to take advantage of a switching bonus. Here’s my list of what the different high street banks are offing at the moment.

If you want to stay with Santander then you can use your local post office. You can pay in money and cheques into your account, and withdraw cash too – though that has the same limit as if you used a cash machine. It’s not perfect but at least it gives people in remote areas somewhere to go.

And of course you can take your banking fully digital – and there are newer banks which have been designed from the beginning to work better for you on your phone.

Here’s my video from a few years ago explaining some of the options, or you can read more here.
