The BBVA Mortgage phone lines will be available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to handle loan-related matters. BBVA’s Direct Marketing Center will also operate during the same schedule to process personal loan and credit card applications, as will the bank’s telephone customer service line. Auto Crédito Retail BBVA, the division that handles motor vehicle financing plans, will operate from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
