Foreign Exchange Rate Advantages

Credit cards are the ideal means of payment all over the world. This is because, when abroad, you always pay in the local currency with your Bonviva credit card – without having to pay the local exchange rate. The local exchange rate is usually higher than that offered by Bonviva credit cards.

Security and Cost Control

With the Bonviva credit card, you do not have to carry cash and thus do not have to convert money. Don't forget to apply for a higher credit limit before your departure – just to be on the safe side.

You are also protected in the event that you lose your credit card abroad. If you lose your card, we make sure you receive emergency cash and a replacement card.

Travel Tips

Book your vacation as early as possible, to get the best prices.

Before your departure, verify your current credit limit and, if necessary, apply for an increase.

Verify the country settings for your Debit Mastercard in Online Banking and, if necessary, unblock blocked countries.

At ATMs: Enter your PIN code discreetly and make sure that nobody is looking over your shoulder. Obviously, don't carry your PIN code in your wallet. 

Keep the credit card blocking number handy. We offer a 24/7 service and will send you a replacement card, within three business days whenever possible.

Always pay in the local currency, even if a debit in Swiss francs is offered.
