  • What is the ING Lion Account?

    The ING Lion Account is far more than a free bank account. It is an entirely free package including:

    • an online bank account with zero charges
    • mobile access via our smartphone and tablet apps
    • e-banking access via Home’Bank and Phone’Bank
    • a card with Bancontact/Mister Cash, Proton and Maestro
    • bank statements in Home'Bank
    • an ING Lion Deposit online savings account
    • free withdrawals at ATMs in Belgium and in the euro zone.

  • Why is the ING Lion Account free?

    Because you are the one doing your daily transactions yourself (via your smartphone, Home’Bank, our tablet app, Phone’Bank or a Self’Bank machine), it makes sense that you don’t have to pay a thing.

  • Can I go in an ING branch to manage my ING Lion Account?

    Of course! Our colleagues are at your disposal to answer your questions and offer any assistance you need. If the transaction you want to carry out is possible via your smartphone (mobile app), Home’Bank, Self’Bank or Phone’Bank, our colleagues will show you how to do it. So you can do your banking yourself however and whenever you wish.

  • Can I also carry out transactions abroad with my ING Lion Account?

    Yes, your ING Lion Account bank card has the Maestro option. You can therefore withdraw money and make payments in Europe.
