Les cartes bleue

2 Feb

Our PIN codes arrived through the post this morning so our CB Visa debit cards are ready to go. We have chosen the type that debit our account immediately; we could have chosen to have the total amount owing debited each month but we prefer to pay out as we go. That way there are no end of month surprises!

The next step is to use them! We have been told that to actuate them we have to make a purchase at a merchant or use a cash machine (Guichet Automatique Bancaire or Distributeur Automatique de Billets, as they are called in France).
