CA Britline

Bank cards to suit your lifestyle

Accessing the money in your French bank account wherever you may be in the world is indispensable. Here are some of the options available to you. If you travel widely or just prefer using your cards for all payments, take a closer look at the new CA Britline cards that have been created for you and compare them to the existing standard options.

Annual fees apply to French debit cards in general but don’t forget that these cards also come equipped with Assistance, Basic Travel Insurance or Full Travel Insurance for yourself and your family (conditions apply).

Other cards are available, notably Visa Infinite or Mastercard World Elite which also include other payment guarantees and wider services, such as an international ‘conciergerie’ – for details speak to an adviser.

Deferred debit cards (End of Month Debit cards) are available for some Crédit Agricole debit cards. Cash withdrawals are debited immediately from your account. The total amount of your purchases are grouped together and debited at the end of each month with 0% interest. See payment calendar 2018
