Before you start your next journey, we have some tips and tricks for using payment cards abroad.

Find out how you can pay abroad in the simplest and most convenient way.

Go over some basic tips for using your card abroad to minimise the risk of fraudulent card use and to enjoy your vacation as much as possible.

Furthermore, we advise you to report your foreign trip to the bank in advance (particularly when travelling to more exotic destinations) to ensure the bank does not view your card transactions from halfway around the world as attempted card fraud.

Do not forget to report your foreign trip to us.

Why it pays to have international travel insurance

When travelling around Europe, an EU insurance card is usually not enough, as it only covers essential medical care that varies from country to country. Things that are covered in the Czech Republic or Germany may not be covered in Spain or Italy. And you have to pay for anything that exceeds the scope of the covered medical care.

What to do in case of problems abroad

In the event of any difficulties, it is first necessary to contact the Assistance Service and agree on further steps in order to avoid complications with the settlement of insurance benefits (if any). The Assistance Service will help you locate the nearest doctor, answer your questions, and advise you on how to proceed in the given situation. It is available 24/7.
