AVGAS in France is considerably cheaper than in most European countries and since France makes a great destination for flying anyway, I don't just like it, I love it.
Often we fill up our tanks in France but the best (and cheapest) way to do this is with a TOTAL carnet card. This card used to be available only to French residents effectively since you needed a France bank account for it.
The people at TOTAL Germany will still tell you that it is not possible to get the Air Total Card with a German bank account.
But I am the living proof that this is not true! Since we now have the SEPA debit standards, I have my TOTAL carnet card and it works - I just fuelled up automatically at the station of Pontarlier / LFSP.
You have to follow the exact procedure of the French Total website and - as a German - you have to give them a 300 € deposit (refundable if you return the card and end the contract) via bank transfer. As the friendly lady in Paris told me it might not work with every German bank but Deutsche Bank is fine.
And it helps to speak some French, but in EMPOA there should be enough French pilots to help with the procedure. Happy fuelling!

Yes, I have a TOTAL card too....but I also have a French bank account....it would be nice to switch the direct debit to my UK GBP account....I don't really understand what SEPA is though....

And yes avgas in France with the card is much cheaper....especially compared to here in Aberdeen....currently over 3€ a litre!

I was actually approached by a German TOTAL manager during the AERO in Friedrichshafen, who offered me the French AIR TOTAL carnet without any further obligations... - all I had to do was to fill in the request card with my details and send it to TOTAL. I cannot remember that a 300€ deposit was mentioned but that might be my fault...
The flyer only mentions a 10 days debit cycle and a 20 days bank collection after sending the invoice by email. Definitely recommended for those who visit France regularly...

Finally found the brochure again and David was right, too!
It does in fact mention a required deposit if you are from outside France, however no minimums are stated...
You will also need a letter of confirmation from your bank that SEPA transactions are allowed, which should be rather standard these days.

Current fuel price at Muret, LFBR (close to Toulouse). And yes ith an AIR TOTAL Carnet it is even cheaper. Agreed, Toulouse is a bit far for a refueling trip from Germany but when you are flying to Spain it is definetly an option.
