Travelling and business trips bring joy and adventures in our life. However, preparing for a pleasant time away people should take care of the financial safety. And the best way to do this is to keep money on a bank card fully relying on new technologies and mobile banking.
According to the latest data, about 90 percent of travellers around the Globe who make payments around the world use payment cards.

If you run out of means, relatives or friends can easily put on the card the amount you need. Another important issue is a foreign currency if you travel abroad. With a card, there is no need to buy currency in advance.
