In order to get the full local experience, we've launched Local IBANs and Local Currencies. However both features have a different way to improve your local experience, bare with us to see how:
- Local IBANs are IBANs based on the local Dutch, German, French and Spanish banking metrics and operate in Euro. This means that you open a sub-account with one of our local branches and your IBAN matches the nationality you've chosen. You can see more on how the Local IBANs work here.
Important note: All the sub-accounts you open within the app, no matter of the country code in the IBAN, are supported and opened by bunq NL.
- Local Currencies is a feature which gives you the opportunity to send, receive and pay in one of the many local currencies we currently provide. For example, you can have a South African Rand local currency account, but not a South African IBAN. When you open a Local Currencies sub-account, you're getting a GB IBAN since the foreign currency isn't held in the Netherlands, but in the UK. You can learn all about operating with this cool feature here
