Watch out for fraud! Be wary if you get a phone call from someone claiming to be an IT support person. Never install remote-access software, and when making payments be sure to check the payee’s bank details and the amount. Your log-in details are confidential – never share them with anyone!

Better together

Like a credit card, the new Visa Debit card lets you make online payments. But there are still several advantages that only a credit card can offer. For example:

  • It’s best to use a credit card to make bookings (hotels, car rentals, etc.), since the amount won’t be directly debited from your account. When you book with a Visa Debit card, the money will be taken out of your account immediately, meaning you’ll have less available for your other purchases.
  • The daily limit for a Visa Debit card outside the eurozone is CHF 3,000. For larger purchases, you’ll need a credit card.
  • BCV’s credit cards (Silver Visa/Mastercard®, Gold Visa/Mastercard® and Platinum Visa) come with different kinds of insurance, depending on the card.
  • When you pay with our credit cards, you automatically earn points toward special offers and vouchers through the surprize rewards program.
