Changing Banks

Hi, has anybody ever changed their bank in France, if so, how did it go? I'm thinking of switching from Credit Agricole to ING.

It still happens, I'm afraid - when it comes to money, it seems only the man counts. Some of our cold calls insist on speaking to "monsieur"!

I changed banks, but more than 20 years ago. It went smoothly, and I've never wanted to go back to Credit Lyonnais. I'm currently with Banque Rhone Alpes, my husband is with Caisse d'Epargne. They can't get my name right, and insist on sending me mail in his name. That's why I stayed with the other bank.
