Why go for a credit card?
The free KBC Credit Card gives you the freedom and convenience to make payments and withdraw cash anywhere in the world. Moreover, what you spend during the month is not debited from your account right away, but instead at the beginning of the following month.
The KBC Credit Card is in fact a card that you can customise to suit your personal needs. You can, for instance:
- Set your own limit
- Spread your repayments if you wish
- Choose from a range of optional, fee-based insurance packages and service packages that ensure maximum convenience

The KBC Credit Card comes free with the KBC Basic Account and KBC Plus Account.
Choose the maximum amount you may spend per month (for example, when you’re on holiday), provided the limit has been approved first.
- Pay conveniently at merchants worldwide using the Mastercard network.
- Shop online with ease on your smartphone or desktop no matter where you are (whether you’re shopping online, booking a holiday, reserving tickets or taking out a subscription, pay in a flash with your KBC Credit Card).
- Withdraw cash at ATMs worldwide.
Generally speaking, what you put on your credit card is usually deducted from your account in one go the following month. If you prefer to spread your repayments over several months, you can link a KBC Flex Budget facility to your KBC Credit Card. This is an extra cash reserve which you pay back at your own pace. When you use it, you only pay interest on the amount outstanding.
Depending on your specific needs, you can link your KBC Credit Card to one of our insurance packages or service packages. If you want, you’re free to combine them too.
You can choose from these optional packages:
- Shopping package (1.50 euros/month): Recently bought an expensive pullover and snagged one of the sleeves? Was your online purchase damaged when delivered or was it not what you ordered?

Not only that, you also get two years' extra warranty on top of the statutory two-year period.
- Travel package (7.00 euros/month): Need to unexpectedly cancel or cut short your trip or has your luggage been delayed? Perhaps you’ve damaged your hire car and have to pay the excess? Just add the travel package to your KBC Credit Card and travel with peace of mind wherever you go.
