Open a sterling currency account
This account is available to Britline customers who hold a euro current account. The minimum balance required to open the account is £1,000 and can be sent by sterling cheque, sterling transfer or transfer from a euro account. The sterling account allows you to hold your funds in sterling until the time is right for you to convert into euros.
There are no chequebooks or cards provided with the sterling account.
Transfers are possible between your sterling account and euro account (minimum transfer amount £1000) upon receipt of signed instructions. The exchange rate for this transaction will be the commercial rate on the day but "on the spot trading" can be arranged for amounts over £25000.
There are no fees for holding a sterling account with CA Britline. Details of the fees for crediting and debiting the sterling account can be found in our Practical Banking Fees.
