English all day, every day

With employees from over 43 different countries and four different continents, bunq’s objective has always been to offer all of their services primarily in English. They understand perfectly that you want to take care of important business in a language that you feel comfortable with. Why? Because they are expats themselves.

Do your banking in English, German, Italian, Spanish or Dutch, whichever you prefer!

The entire signup process is available in English, German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch.

From start to finish, you'll be able to do it all in your own native language. That way you can be sure that you don't miss anything important along the way! It goes without saying that the bunq app is entirely translated too.
