Stay Safe Online

Britline will never ask you for your bank account or card details to be confirmed in the form of an email. If you ever receive a mail supposedly from us don’t reply and contact us. If in doubt always contact us. To find out more we have made a short clip on the subject.

Top Tip

If you have recently changed from a sole account to a joint account or are currently sharing a 6 digit personal access code with you partner for French online banking please contact us to receive your own individual code. Your 6 digit personal access code is very important. It will be needed not only when calling us but also when logging in to your online banking, and from time to time when using the app Ma Banque.

We would like to remind you

When you receive an email informing you that you have received an E-doc always consult your online banking to see which document has been made available to you. The message you receive may be titled ‘You have a message!’ or ‘Vos documents "Banque, Assurance" à disposition’. E-docs can include:

  • Bank statements
  • Insurance documents
  • Mortgage or loan document
  • Fiscal declarations
  • Means of Payments
  • Regulatory information

Last but not least

Christmas celebrations are likely to be different for many of us this year, however we would like to wish you and your family our warmest wishes and most importantly good health for the year to come. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
