Paying in cash
While you are in France, you may wish to credit your CA Britline account by paying cash in at a local branch of Crédit Agricole. As with many banks in France, Crédit Agricole is a regionalised bank. This means that branches outside Normandy, where your Britline account is held, will not be able to view your account.
If you choose to deposit cash in a branch outside of Normandy (departments 14, 50 and 61), this transaction is referred to as a “versement déplacé”. Be aware that due to regional policies, some branches may refuse to take a cash deposit for an account held in another region. You will therefore need to check with the local branch if they accept cash deposits from out-of-region account holders.
Good to Know:
To avoid delays when you make a "versement déplacé", it is imperative that you include a copy of your RIB and passport. You can find your RIB:
- on your online banking or via the Ma Banque app.
- in your chequebook: look at the ‘Bordereau de Remise de Chèques ou Relevé d’Identité Bancaire’ at the front of your chequebook.
