Seven digital banking tips for your vacation

Thanks to these simple tips, there’s nothing standing in the way of a relaxing break – whether in Switzerland or for a trip abroad.

Three valuable tips for holidays in Switzerland

Tip #1

Experience big things and make the most of small breaks with the UBS Access App

Want to check your account balance during a ride on the summer toboggan? Enjoy a paddleboat trip and approve a new payee at the same time? No problem: the Access App is the key to your digital banking transactions. Download the Access App now for free. The Mobile Banking App is your ideal companion.


Tip #2

All under control: receive notifications about accounts and cards

Keep an eye on credit card movements and stay informed about expenses and account transactions – via push notification, text message or e-mail.


Tip #3

Pay for your train ticket quickly and easily with TWINT

With the TWINT App, you can pay for your public transport ticket securely and conveniently – for example at SBB, Lezzgo, Fairtiq and in the apps of regional transport providers. It’s best to register TWINT once as the standard means of payment. This will allow you to make ticket purchases at the speed of an express train in future.

Tip #4

Heightened anticipation: have foreign currencies delivered straight to your home

Save yourself the trip to a branch and order the banknotes online in the currency of your next travel destination in e-banking or in the Mobile Banking app. The banknotes will be delivered to your home within 1 to 2 days.


Tip #5

React in an emergency: block cards on your app

A lost or even stolen credit card is an annoyance, especially on vacation.
React right away, block your card and order replacement cards – via app or in e-banking.

Even better: your virtual replacement card is available immediately, without having to wait for physical delivery by post.


Tip #6

Adjust your travel budget: recharge your card balance on the go

Is your credit card limit too low or almost used up? Transfer funds to your credit or prepaid card quickly and securely. Just as clever: before your trip, set E-Banking to automatically top up your prepaid card at a certain point.


Tip #7

Make contactless payments by smartphone

Turn your smartphone into a wallet with TWINT, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Google Pay. Whatever the alternative, you can pay securely and contactlessly without cards or cash. In Switzerland and all over the world.

Define a daily and monthly limit

Deciding on a limit offers additional security when you lose your debit card. Define a limit with a few clicks and adjust it anytime in the Mobile Banking app.

Pay in the foreign currency with your credit card

When abroad, you’ll often be asked in which currency you want to pay. We recommend: choose the foreign currency. You’ll avoid additional fees and have full transparency on your card statement.
