Shopping and cash abroad – conveniently with a card

Are you planning a journey abroad? Did you know that the card is more comfortable and safer than cash for paying for purchases overseas?

You don’t have to exchange travel currency in advance. If necessary, you can withdraw cash at a lower cost at ATMs in your destination country.

Carry cards when travelling abroad

The safest way to pay for purchases abroad is to use OP’s payment cards rather than cash. It’s advisable to take at least two payment cards with you when you travel. Keep the other one with you and the other one in, say, your hotel’s safe deposit box. Two cards will provide protection during your journey if the other card is damaged or gets lost.

Please handle your payment cards with care. If your card gets lost, report it immediately to the card deactivation service. This is how you will ensure a carefree holiday because responsibility for any subsequent fraud transfers to the bank immediately after your report. Save the OP Deactivation Service number to your mobile in form +358 100 0555 and deactivation from abroad runs smoothly 24/7.

Lower exchange rates with card

If you pay with a card abroad, too, the exchange rates are lower compared to exchanging cash into travel currency. It pays to carry only some foreign cash with you as travel money. If necessary, you can withdraw cash at local ATMs or foreign exchange outlets.
