Hi,

So BNP Paribas requires that I buy this insurance (form someone hopefully them) to open up my account.

They have quoted me $330 Euro for a year. Is that reasonable for a T4 apartment in Lyon?

If not, where can I buy it online and quickly? BNP is saying they can't open my bank account without proof of this insurance.


Thanks.

Just Google 'souscrire assurance villegiature' - AXA offer a policy online (or you can just go into one of their agencies local to you and they will sign you up immediately - but you will need a bank account for payment). or have a look here https://www.lesfurets.com/assurance-habitation/guide/garantie-villegiature-une-assurance-pour-de-bonnes-vacances, but again you will probably have the bank account issue.

However, I don't see an issue with the 330 Euro for a year and it would mean that you would have a bank account from which to make the payment. You could be complicating life just to save a few Euros.
