  • Built on an extension

  • Started running a gite
or anything else that could change how you are reimbursed in the event of a claim think about contacting us to check.
It’s better to be safe than sorry!

Good to know

You may use Google Translate-a clever internet tool allowing you to obtain translations from French to English when accessing French websites.
Basic translations of pages via this tool may result in both surprising and amusing translations whilst helping you understand what you are reading. However when using our internet banking services, most importantly the French online banking service (BAM), its best to switch off the tool as an error message can appear.
What can the message mean? On a day to day basis this may result in you being unable to carry out transfers between your accounts or consult correctly your accounts.
Therefore the next time you wish to log on think about turning off the tool before you begin.
