Hellenic introduces mobile banking units

The mobile banks have been axed

The first mobile banking unit (MBU) of Hellenic Bank was presented at the Aes Ambelis winery in Klirou on Friday morning.

The big vehicle will officially start its rounds of villages around the island on Monday.

A second vehicle is expected to operate from early December, the bank announced.

“Mobile banking vehicles are innovative in their design and built on European safety standards and meet all of these specifications to provide customer service and customer experience while demonstrating respect for the environment,” the bank announced.

The MBUs are powered by solar energy and other innovative technologies making them energy sufficient for up to 15 hours.

They will offer exactly the same services as a regular bank branch such as money withdrawals, deposits, payments and loan applications.

The vehicle includes ATMs, cash registers and seats and has built-in air conditioning, adaptive lighting, and a lift to facilitate access for the elderly and disabled.

The banking unit was created because the bank understands that it is not always easy to access banking services, especially for the residents of remote areas, Hellenic Bank’s statement said.

The first unit will cover 12 communities. On Monday it travels to Kofinou, Ayios Dhometios, Choirokoitia, and Kalo Chorio, on Tuesday to Vrisoulles and Frenaros, on Wednesday to Xylotymbou and Dasaki, on Thursday to Liopetri and Xylophagou and on Friday it serves customers in Parekklisia and Germasogeia.
