How it works
With bunq, everything you do is handled on the app and there are no physical branches. bunq has recently simplified the types of personal accounts it offers, now offering Easy Bank, Easy Money and Easy Green.
The most affordable plan, Easy Bank, comes with a monthly maintenance fee of €2.99. For Easy Money, you’ll pay €8.99 a month or €17.99 a month for Easy Green.
Both the Easy Money and Easy Green accounts allow you to set up 25 individual IBAN accounts to manage your money. In the app, you’ll be able to use budgeting tools, set up savings goals, use a personal payment link to get paid easily by friends and get free ATM withdrawals when you travel overseas. bunq’s highest tier account, Easy Green, also allows you to offset your CO2 emissions by planting trees on your behalf.

bunq offers innovative accounts for those looking for different features from their bank. You can benefit from features that come standard with digital banks such as budgeting options and security tools, but you also get extra features such as the option of multiple bank accounts and an eco-friendly account option that can help you become CO2 free.
While these are great features, make sure you are going to use and benefit from them before you sign up as there is no free bank account option.
