Santander is a large Spanish bank, which has become one of the main challengers to the Big Four banks in the UK. It has operated in the UK since taking over Abbey National and Bradford & Bingley branches here. They, also, acquired Alliance & Leicester in 2013.
Santander offers some competitive banking and credit card products which you won't find elsewhere on the high street.
However, the bank has a history of poor performance for its insurance offerings.
Santander’s life and home insurance policies are underwritten by Aviva.
Meanwhile, its travel insurance is provided by ACE European Group Ltd.
