1. Apply for the card
Apply for a Global Cash card in one of our branches. You choose the sum to deposit onto the card at the time of your application (min 100 EUR/USD).
2. Receiving the card
You receive your card together with the PIN-code over the counter right away, fully activated and ready to use.
3. Before your trip
Make sure you have enough money on your card and reload it if necessary.
For an easier and safer transaction we recommend that you reload your Global Cash card using a credit card that has a 3D secure solution*. You can then make transfers online after you have registered a profile on My Pages.
The maximum amount that you can reload the account with is 15 000 EUR/USD over a 12-month period. The balance allowed at any given time is restricted to a maximum of 5 000 EUR/USD.
4. Using the card abroad
The card can be used just as your regular card abroad. Use it to make payments in stores and withdraw cash in ATMs.
5. Back from your trip
Save your card for your next trip but remember to not let it be unused for more than 12 months since this will terminate your card.
