[more questions from me! Laughing ]

Having just graduated, I'm fortunate to have a graduate account with an interest-free overdraft facility, which is 1250. On top of this I hope to have around 300, with luck, a bit more..

With the overdraft, this should be enough - but do u think over time I will be able to (mostly) replace the inevitable large amount of money I will spend in the first 2 months of living in Madrid..? especially when the first pay cheque comes in?? (which I am aware is not mega bucks!)

Cheers!

That's cutting it close, but should be enough. When you move into your flat you'll have to pay the first month's rent plus one month's deposit, which will cost you about 300 or more.

My advice is don't depend on overdraft, have enough money so you won't have to worry about finances the first month or so
