What is a credit card?

A credit card is a payment card that lets you pay for things or withdraw cash at home and abroad. Payments by credit card don’t leave your account straightaway, but are rather charged to your account at a fixed time every month.

Why might a Gold Mastercard credit card be useful?

Often shop online? Our Gold Mastercard could be ideal for you. It provides extra protection for online purchases you make on your card.

Love travelling? This card also gives you travel cancellation insurance.

There’s always a chance you can’t go on holiday or you have to interrupt it because of troubles at home such as a member of your family being admitted to hospital.

If you’re already on holiday and have to return early, you’ll receive compensation for the number of days’ holiday you miss. You are covered for claims of up to 6,000 euros.

What’s excluded?

  • Cancellations or interruptions due to non-stable medical disorders or injuries that already existed when the trip was booked
  • Claims that are the result of an excessive use of alcohol or medication or drugs, which were not prescribed by a doctor
