How to open a Sterling Bank Account in France

Did you know that if you regularly receive or make payments in pounds sterling, you can open a bank account in France that does precisely that – with CA Britline?

Yes, it is true.

Whatever the future may hold, we know that our customers want to have the peace of mind that they can pay their bills and receive their pension income or a salary for UK based transactions. That is why for CA Britline customers with a euro account, we can open one for handling their money in pounds, too.

So, if you have a property in the UK; maybe have a job or work freelance in Britain; or you are retired and receive a pension, the CA Britline sterling account is a real option. Let us look at the various benefits:-
  1. It is easy to transfer money between your CA Britline sterling and euro currency accounts (minimum transfer €1000). This is generally free for a CA Britline account unless “on the spot” trading is required.
  2. Your Money is protected… The French Government has a Deposit Guarantee covering deposit and savings accounts for amounts up to €100,000. This is similar to the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

CA Britline is part of Crédit Agricole, one of France’s largest banks. We have been around for more than a century, so rest assured that your money is safe with us. Opening your account is quick and easy.
