I would expect that it is not possible to get :note-5: right?
No, the lowest I've ever gotten at a French ATM is :note-10: , and French banks will not exchange notes "in person" like they do in Germany (and definitely not on July 14th :lol: ).

When reading the comments of some French :note-5: hit notes, I saw several "Echangeur billets" comments. With my not really existent French I assume that these are some kind of changing ATMs. Who is allowed to use them? Customers of that bank only? Or customers of French banks etc.?
Yes, there are machines in some banks that allow you to exchange larger notes and get :note-5: notes in exchange (off the top of my head, CIC, Crédit Lyonnais and BNP banks have these at some locations). You do need to be a customer of the bank though (and IIRC, for the Crédit Lyonnais machines, you need to have a professional account, not just a personal one). The machine will ask for a credit card to prove you're a customer. CIC does have an option for non-customers, where you pay 1€ for each :note-5: note you receive :roll: So if you put a :note-20: in the machine, you will receive 3* :note-5: and a 2-euro coin…

In case I cannot get :note-5: , which banks offer some sort of choice of notes at ATMs? What I am asking is whether the ATM gives notes automatically or if there is the possibility to choose from a couple of options for a certain amount of money?
I've heard that the ATMs at the CIC sometimes offer Stückelung, starting with :note-10: notes, but I've never used those myself, and I don't know if it's available at all their locations. ATMs at the BNP usually offer some vague options ("mostly :note-50: notes", "mostly :note-20: and :note-10: notes" or "a mix of the two"). I don't know if other banks have similar options.

Yes in some CIC ATM it's possible to choose but not in my city for example :cry:
Caisse d'Épargne and Crédit Agricole also gave the possibility to choose just :note-50: ; :note-10: and :note-20: or "mix of the two" ! :wink:

Thanks for your detailed answer :D . If there is time left, I'll try to visit as many ATM's as possible with my Dutch card :mrgreen: . I'd visit up to 5 banks. After some quick search on Google Maps I made a list of the banks which have a branch (and hopefully a working ATM on July 14th :P ) in Sarreguemines. Which of these banks listed below could give the best results (in terms of notes available and option to choose notes):
-BNP Paribas :arrow: mentioned as quite a good option and I had one good experience in Paris myself
-CCM :arrow: no idea for what this stands :oops: (on Google street view there was a Crédit Mutuel lettering outside on the photo)
-Caisse d'Epargne
-Banque Populaire
-Crédit Agricole de Lorraine :arrow: these agricultural banks seem to be regionally divided.. Does anyone know whether they also differ in terms of choice of notes etc.?
-Société Générale
-LCL :arrow: one try in Paris some years ago; but no choice. Have they changed/has anyone experience with this bank (maybe I did domething wrong when I was there)

Really??? Two years ago, I visited the C. d'E. in Versailles. No choice of notes (and I was lucky to withdraw 230€, otherwise I would have probably received :note-50: only had I chosen 250€ :roll: ). Apart from that... The staff at that branch did not speak any English at all and somehow wasn't very helpful to give me an envelop for an UNC note I did not want to put in my wallet where it would be folded :evil: :evil:

At least I'm going with my brother who speaks French and banks would not be open anyways whether it's July 14th or a "normal" saturday, I'd say :lol:

Hello GWR7007

BNP: you have (almost )always the choice between:
-only :note-10: and :note-20:
-only :note-50:
-a mix

Crédit Mutuel is maybe a good choice, it's the same as CIC and sometimes you can choose the notes, maximum 40 of them
Look at all the ATMs inside and outside the bank, the screen shows the type of notes.

All the others banks are "normal", with sometimes a choice of a mix (Crédit Agricole, Caisse d'Epargne)

You have "la Banque Postale" (the post office) too. There you can find maybe only "little notes", :note-10: and :note-20:

Sorry for my english :oops:

I had previously posted this in another area of the forum about 2 days ago, but I am reposting here as I was told that I might get a better answer in this area.

How easy it to get rolls of coins in France?

I am just curious how easy is it to get rolls of coins (just looking for 1 roll each of the €2 and the €0.50) at banks in France, especially if you are not a customer of that bank?

It was claimed in the past that the public cash centers at Banque de France might be a place to do this, but it is claimed that it isn't the case now.

Oh, I have to add that I am intending to go to the main Banque De France public cash center in Paris to get these two rolls.

Thanks again!

I think it's impossible ! :cry:

Many "Banque de France" places don't make change of money anymore.

I m not able to suggest Paris, France :flag-fr: but I would like that Someone could do it.
It's been 13 years that EBTM didn't take place in :flag-fr:
I could help if possible
Jack
I would really encourage the french community to come up with a french city. Once there has been a small competition between Paris and Berlin. Besides Berlin winning that vote (and confessing to vote those years back for Berlin), I am among those who would really apriciate a french - maybe from Paris - candidate for EBTM.
