Six digital banking tips for your vacation Planning to go on vacation soon? With UBS Digital Banking, you can travel without worrying about your finances. 


Tip 1

Get notifications about your accounts and cards

To keep an eye on your credit card transactions and stay informed about your expenses and income, simply use your smartphone. You have the choice of push notifications, text messages, or e-mails. Activate your notifications in e-banking or in the UBS Mobile Banking app.


Tip 2

Take digital copies of your ID with you

Save copies of important ID documents or bank and insurance cards in the UBS Safe. This way, you can access them quickly on your smartphone when traveling.


Tip 3

Block your cards via app and use our early warning system

It's a real pain if your credit card is lost or even stolen, especially when you're on vacation. With UBS, you can react at once in an emergency and block your cards yourself and order replacement cards – either using the app or in e-banking.

Our early warning system offers you extra security. We'll send you a text message or give you a call if we spot any suspicious transactions. Just enter your mobile number in e-banking.


Tip 4

Log in more easily – without a card reader

Download the UBS Access app and log in to e-banking or mobile banking without any additional devices. So you don't need to pack your card reader.


Tip 5

Top up your card balance while on the move

Credit card limit too low? About to hit it? Transfer funds quickly and securely to your credit or prepaid card. It's so convenient with e-banking or the UBS Mobile Banking app.


Tip 6

Restrict the area where your card can be used

Decide whether your UBS Maestro Card can be used worldwide, in Europe, or only in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, and set your own daily and monthly limits. This way, you protect yourself against card misuse.
