Santander to close 111 branches – find out which ones

Find out which branches are affected and what you can do if your Santander bank branch is going to shut in 2021.

Starting in late June, a whopping 111 branches of Santander will close their doors this year the bank has revealed. This follows a further 162 that have closed in the last two years. There will still be 452 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 50 every month. That’s huge!

It’s understandable in many ways. Santander says branch visits were down 33% in 2018 and 2019, and down a further 50% last year. Instead two-thirds of transactions are now online or via phones.

Still it’s a huge frustration for customers – especially those who don’t want to go digital. My parents experienced this a few years ago 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.

Stick with Santander

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.

Don’t forget that if you hold a Santander 123 account you’re probably better off downgrading to a Santander 123 Lite account. Here’s more about how the accounts differ.

Change your bank

A better option might be to switch bank to one which has a branch near you. Of course, there’s no guarantee your new 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 offering at the moment.

And of course you can take your banking fully digital – and there are newer banks that have been designed from the beginning to work better for you on your phone. My top picks of these are Monzo and Starling.

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