Welcome Pack

Maximum convenience with the free Welcome Pack youth account Welcome Pack

What is the Welcome Pack?

The Welcome Pack is the free BNP Paribas Fortis current account for young people under 18. It includes a bank account, a bank card, use of PC banking and Phone banking and a number of handy mobile phone services.

Advantages of this current account

Pay, withdraw money and make transfers free of charge. Also use your free bank card to withdraw money from cash machines and pay in shops, even online. When you turn 18 your Welcome Pack will automatically be switched to the Hello4You account, so you can carry on banking for free until you turn 27.

The default amounts for withdrawals are EUR 125 per day and EUR 250 per week, and you can pay in up to EUR 250 a day and EUR 250 a week as standard. You have the option to adjust these limits in branch, with your parents' agreement.

Your parents can open a Welcome Pack for you in branch or online. Make sure to pop into your branch, as there will be a cool headphone waiting for you to collect. Remember to request your free card reader straight away, which you can use to log in securely to PC banking and make online payments.

Consult the Money Coach for any questions you have about money. You will find them in all our branches or on +32 (0)2 433 41 75.

The money in your Welcome Pack account will start earning interest, right from the very first euro.
