Hellenic Bank launches mobile banking units

Hellenic Bank introduced its first mobile banking unit (MBU) on Friday morning.

The vehicle will start operating around the villages of the island on Monday.

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

“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.

MBUs are powered by solar energy making them energy sufficient for up to 15 hours.

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

MBUs includes ATMs, cash registers. They have seats, built-in air conditioning and a lift to facilitate access for the elderly and disabled.

The banking unit was created to serve residents of remote areas, a bank 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.
