Carry cards when travelling abroad
The safest way to pay for purchases abroad is to use OP’s payment cards instead of cash. It’s advisable to take two payment cards with you when you travel. Keep one with you and the other in, say, your hotel’s safe deposit box. Having two payment cards will provide protection if your primary payment card is damaged or gets lost.
Paying with a card is more inexpensive
If you pay for your purchases by a card abroad, the exchange rates are lower compared to exchanging cash into foreign currency in advance. If you still want to reserve some cash for your trip before departure, only exchange a small amount. If necessary, you can withdraw more cash at an ATM or a foreign exchange outlet in your destination country.
Take care of your card and report a lost card immeadiately
Please handle your payment cards with care. If your card gets lost, report it immediately to the card deactivation service. Doing so will ensure you a carefree holiday as the responsibility for possible misuse will transfer to the bank immediately after reporting a card lost.
