My own depositing
… took place on Saturday, 4th of December 2016, through the branch office of the Reisebank at the airport Frankfurt. Similar to Marie and Lukas in this article.
Already on the following Monday, 6th of December 2016, the money was booked on my current account, as you can see in this screenshot:
I have only deposited bills. Coins would have been possible too – anyways, if the total amount is more than Euros 1,000.
Frequently asked questions on the depositing at the ING-DiBa
1. Does one always have to present the Girocard?
Presenting the Girocard is recommended by the bank, because one is virtually identifying oneself as a bank customer and the employee can copy the account number easily from the Girocard for the depositing.
In practice, cash deposits are also accepted, if one states the account number or IBAN someway else.
2. Depositing to a third party account?
The ING-DiBa officially states that deposits through the Reisebank are only free of charge for the account holder or the empowered person or that the ING-DiBa bears the fees for the deposit only for “own” people.
However, we received confirmation by the circle of our smart bank customers that no fees were charged at the deposit to an account at the ING-DiBa, if it is a third party account.
3. Does the bank also accept foreign ID-cards?
In most cases, yes. At best, you take the identification document, which you have used for the account opening at the ING-DiBa.
If you have an ID-card and a passport, then take the passport with you. The passport is the more-valued legitimating document in many issuing countries.
4. Can I deposit my daily takings this way?
Almost in any case no, because the ING-DiBa only offers current accounts exclusively for the private use.
The Deutsche Bank could be interesting for the opening of a business account, because there are possibilities to get it without a monthly account management fee and deposit money through the branch offices. Source: www.deutsche-bank.de.
5. How frequently can I deposit money free of charge?
The ING-DiBa does not know a limit of the number. Theoretically, you can deposit money several times a day.
There are only limits for the amount to be deposited. The bank has set a limit with Euros 1,000 to 25,000, which is meaningful for most customers (e.g. sales revenues of a car) and at the same time profitable for the bank.
6. Is it possible to deposit less than Euros 1,000?
Yes, however, you will have to bear the fees for the deposit yourself.
You then also have the freedom to make the deposit at other banks. For example, at banks that are situated closer to you or charge lower fees. The Reisebank is not popular, because its favourable fees. 😉
