French Cheques do Nicely Thank You

There is no such thing as a bank guarantee card in France, as a cheque must be honoured.

Cheques are still widely used in France, and using one is equivalent to paying in cash.

You cannot cancel a cheque because you have changed your mind, and if you do not pay a cheque for insufficient funds, then ultimately you can be barred from having a French bank account for up to five years.

Neither can you 'post-date' a cheque, as technically speaking, it can be cashed the next day!
