The best time to visit your bank:

If you need to go visit your banks branch for something that can't be done electronically such as collecting a new bank card or depositing/withdrawing money, you can save yourself time and the frustration of standing in ques by avoiding going when branches are notoriously busy.

Naturally the last few days before the end of the month are always the busiest are people are going to withdraw money or arrange financing until pay day. Lunch time during the week from 12pm - 1.30pm can be equally as time consuming to visit a branch as well as Saturday mornings.

If you can avoid visiting your bank's branch during these times you can save yourself a lot of time and stress.
