*The preparation of current account, bank card, credit card and insurance coverage.
Planning to rent a house or apartment during your stay? In Belgium, owners typically ask for a rental guarantee to cover the cost of any repairs that may be required in the event of damage. ING not only offers an easy and secure facility for paying your guarantee but even has specially designed insurance to cover your liability as a tenant. So you can rest easy, starting with your first night at your new address!
- Rental guarantee: we can open a blocked savings account for you in your name on which the guarantee is deposited. Which means you continue to earn interest on the full amount.
- Home insurance for tenants: we cover your liability as a tenant with comprehensive home and fire insurance.
Need an account in multiple currencies that also includes transactions at your branch? Want to be able to do your banking whenever and wherever you want? ING has 2 accounts perfectly adapted to the needs of expats, complete with payment card.
- ING Green Account: our classic current account in multiple currencies and for multiple account holders, enabling both online and in-branch transactions.
