The following infographic by www.banque.enligne.top helps you find out how much does it cost to own a bank accuont in France. Ten years ago that would have been 150 euros a year but now with online bank account this has been dropped to zero. Indeed most online banks are now free and like Boursorama, N26 and Orange Bank don’t even require a minimal income.
Of course if you fancy getting a Visa Premier or a Gold Mastercard you’d have to at least domiciliate 1200 euros per month at ING or prove that your income are above 1800 euros per months at Fortuneo or BforBank.
Eventually the only thing that is not free is currency payement which are charged at very reasonnable fare except for N26 which is totally free!
