About Visa and Visa Electron Cards
Both the Visa and Visa Electron pre-paid cards can be used to pay for goods and services at millions of restaurants, hotels and shops worldwide. In fact, they can be used at any location that displays the Visa or Visa Electron symbol*. Furthermore, you can use your card to access local currency from over one million Visa cash machines in more than 160 countries.
The cards are pre-loaded with your spending money before you travel, enabling you to easily keep track of exactly how much you are spending while you are away from home. If you have funds left on your card at the end of your travels, you can choose to keep them on your card and top them up the next time you travel**, or alternatively, withdraw the remaining cash from an ATM.
As well as the usual security features you’d expect from a Visa card such as PIN and signature protection, you also have the option to buy additional cards** that can access the same funds that have been loaded onto the first card. The additional card can be given to a travelling companion** or can be kept safe and used as a replacement card if the first card is lost or stolen.
The Visa and Visa Electron pre-paid cards come with Emergency Assistance**. With one phone call at any time of the night or day, you can get practical help and assistance with situations such as lost passports or wallets, medical emergencies, legal problems and even translation assistance.
