Where should I setup a bank account in Saint-Joseph?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Saint-Joseph what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Before retiring in Saint-Joseph, expats should know that the official language is French, so it would be beneficial to learn or have a basic understanding of the language. The cost of living can be high, especially when it comes to imported goods, due to its remote location. Healthcare in Martinique is of a high standard, but it's advisable to have comprehensive health insurance. The climate is tropical, with a rainy season from June to October and a dry season from November to May. The local currency is the Euro, as Martinique is an overseas department of France. Expats should be aware of the local customs and traditions, which are a blend of French and Creole cultures. Public transportation is available but having a car can be more convenient for getting around the island. Expats should also be aware that Martinique is prone to natural disasters such as hurricanes and volcanic activity. The island has a slower pace of life, which can be a big adjustment for those used to a fast-paced lifestyle. It's also important to understand the local tax laws and how they will affect your retirement income. Finally, while Martinique is generally safe, like any place, it has crime. Expats should take standard precautions to protect themselves and their property," remarked another expat who made the move to Saint-Joseph, Martinique.
