Seven digital banking tips for your vacation

These seven tips will make sure you’ll have a relaxing time off.


Tip #1

Insider tips: Make (almost) any foreign currency payment in the exact amount

Whether a secluded hotel, private cooking course or an exciting tour, with the help of a local, you’ll experience other countries in a completely new way. The only problem: they sometimes don’t take credit cards. The solution: you can now simply transfer the money without conversion loss. Over 120 currencies available.


Tip #2

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 #3

Travel light: leave the card reader at home

Download the UBS Access App and log in to e-banking or the Mobile Banking App without using any extra gadgets. You don’t even need to carry your card reader around with you to check your account balance or make payments to approved recipients. Want to always be ready for new beneficiaries? All you have to do is increase your limit for payments with unconfirmed beneficiaries.


Tip #4

Better safe than sorry: bring digital copies of your ID with you

Store copies of important identification documents or banking and insurance cards in the UBS Safe. That way you can access them on your smartphone.


Tip #5

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 #6

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.


Tip #7

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

Your credit card limit is too low or almost depleted? Quickly transfer money to your credit or prepaid card.

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.
