The Expatrio Blocked Account is the cheapest option you will find online. You will only be charged an account set-up fee of 49 EUR and an additional 5 EUR service fee per month. This will cover the costs of the underlying banking infrastructure as well as the MANGOPAY and Expatrio services.
If you are a student, we highly recommend you ordering Value Package instead of the Blocked Account by itself. In such a case, you will need to pay only for your Blocked Account and Public Health Insurance (which are compulsory anyway) and you will get Incoming Insurance, Current Account, DeGiS Membership, Stay Safe Insurance and Repatriation Insurance for free saving more than €345.
