Go online for free banking

Reading the recent news of a freeze on French bank charges and subsequent readers’ comments, I’d like to add that I have recently changed my French bank from Crédit Agricole to Orange Bank online (arranged at my local Orange phone shop).

With this account I receive a cheque book, debit card, ATM free withdrawals and full banking facilities online.

Most importantly, no fees or charges provided I use my card at least three times per month (otherwise it incurs a €5 fee). Free banking! Maybe it’s time to vote with our money?
