which is the cheapest bank?

Whether you live in Loire-Atlantique, Vende, Sarthe, Maine-et-Loire or Mayenne, it is better to choose your bank carefully if you want to avoid prohibitive bank charges. Our ranking of the least greedy brands in the region.

Which of the 20 banks established in Pays de la Loire is the least expensive for a young person, for a customer with a classic profile or for a premium customer? This is the question we answer through our annual study. After having defined 3 profiles, calculated the annual fees linked to these banking behaviors and sorted the results by region, MoneyVox awarded a Banking Trophy to 4 establishments.

Banque Populaire and Crdit Maritime Grand Ouest rewarded among young people

The Young customer, as defined by the editorial staff, has fairly simple banking needs: a systematic authorization or immediate debit card, 2 monthly withdrawals outside their bank, 3 transactions outside the euro zone in the year, 12 instant transfers and as many occasional transfers per year… (see our methodology in detail). After analysis of the bank tariff brochures, the Banque Populaire Grand Ouest and the Crdit Maritime Grand Ouest are the least expensive establishments in the Pays de la Loire, with an annual cost of 20 euros. The Cristal Essentiel package, marketed by these two establishments, only costs 1 euro per month to 18-24 year olds. Finally, the bill is mainly inflated by the costs related to operations abroad. But this remains lower than the competitors and the average in the territory (37.27 euros).
