The Need-to-Knows

*Free day to day banking means you won’t be charged for day to day use of your account - like cash withdrawals and quarterly fees for maintaining the account. Fees and charges may apply for non-euro ATM cash withdrawals and using a debit card for purchases in foreign currency.

The KBC Current Account Plus is a Euro account. You cannot make lodgements to your Current Account Plus in any currency other than Euro.

^CashBack is at the retailers discretion and a purchase is required. A minimum amount may be necessary.
