Default Keep Home Town or Switch to Large bank for Full Timing

I have scoped out a few coaches and looking for advice on choosing a bank that would be ranked high for accessibility once we purchase and start traveling full time. Currently I bank with a smaller independent bank with just a few branches. I love my bank but am concerned about how well that will work while away for months at a time. Thanks for your help.

We tried to do the home town bank/credit union. At first it didn't seem like a problem because with online banking it should be easier right? Not so much. With a couple of nightmares I don't want to re-live I will just leave it at. - We decided what would work best for us was to switch a nation wide bank for us it's less hassle and mistakes. (on the banks end not ours)

Nationwide Bank.
I just had a problem with my Insurance and scheduled payments. I simply went to the nearest Citibank and they were able to help me with the issues.

I don't think there is a one size fits all "best", just find a bank that offers the services important to you.

Banks are a pain the butt no matter what, small or large. I have had problems with both. Phils right get one that has the options that fit your needs.

I have to agree, Nationwide banks have the ability to make life easier when problems arise.
