Withdraw cash at ATMs anytime, both in Switzerland and abroad

Deposit notes and coins at selected BCV ATMs

Make fast, secure payments at shops in Switzerland and abroad, now even more easily with contactless payment

Thanks to contactless payment, you can make purchases of up to CHF 80 with a simple wave of your hand. No need to sign a receipt or enter a PIN

View your recent transactions and account balance at all BCV ATMs

Link your card to several accounts, so one card is all you need to make deposits, withdraw cash, and view account balances

Enhanced security

Overdrafts are not allowed, so withdrawals and purchases are authorized only if there's enough money in your account to cover them. That means you can't be tempted to spend more than you have.

To help prevent payment card fraud (like skimming), transactions outside Europe are capped at CHF 300/day. Keep that in mind when you travel, and take another type of card with you such as a credit card or prepaid card.

You cannot use your Maestro card in countries or regions subject to sanctions or embargoes. The current list of those countries and regions is: North Korea, Crimea, Cuba, Iran, and Syria.

Contact us immediately if your card is lost or stolen. We will cancel the card and issue a new one right away.
