Hi All,

Given the recent media coverage and my reading of this forum I contacted my bank today to ask what my breakage fee would be. Based on the examples I've seen here, I was surprised at how high it was. See below for the details - does this sound right to you?

Even with this breakage fee it should still constitute a saving of approx. €2000 to break now and switch to a 3 year fixed rate of 3%, so we will most likely do this, but like I say I was just surprised at the breakage fee quoted so wanted to ask for a second opinion.

Thanks in advance for any replies/advice.
