WestStein Prepaid Travel Card

Now there are endless opportunities to travel around the world. However, before building routes for your adventures, you need to think about a comfortable way to pay during your vacation.

The WestStein Prepaid Card is a great alternative to cash. Since carrying cash with you is not only inconvenient, but also not entirely safe. Let’s try to figure out which is the best travel card so as not to experience difficulties in a foreign country.

The best bank cards for travel

The best bank cards for travel should have the following benefits:

  • the ability to conduct financial transactions in any country in the world;
  • have reliable protection against hacking and theft of funds;
  • should be simple and easy to use;
  • not have restrictions that would cause inconvenience to its owner;
  • favorable terms of payment and cash withdrawal by travel card.

All of the above criteria are met by the WestStein virtual card. A card from our financial company is a reliable companion both on a business trip and on vacation. With it, you can make payments and pay for purchases in more than three tens of millions of stores located around the world.

If you need cash, you can withdraw it from almost any ATM with a minimum commission, which is fixed, unlike other cards. This fact is very significant, since very often a person, when withdrawing money in an unfamiliar country, is not even aware of the amount of commission fees, which turn out to be prohibitively high.

Ordering a Mastercard prepaid card is also necessary for those who do not want to spend more money during their trip than they planned. This card does not imply the presence of an overdraft, which has to be returned with accrued interest. Therefore, when you come home, you will not have to regret the money spent. Just before you travel, you need to plan how much money you can spend during this time and transfer it to your WestStein card.

Issuing a bank card for travel

Getting a bank card for travel is very simple and fast. You will not need to spend a lot of time and effort on visiting a bank office and collecting documents. It is necessary to fill out a registration form on the official website of the financial company WestStein, go through verification, which confirms your personal data – name, surname, address, zip code, phone number, e-mail. After verification, you will receive a notification that the card is ready. For full use, you need to top up the travel card for a certain amount.

It is convenient for entrepreneurs and people who combine work with leisure to use debit cards for travel. Such a tool is good not only for various payments for purchases and services, renting a car or housing, and purchasing air tickets. It will also come in handy if you have to pay salaries, make tax and other mandatory transfers: for example, insurance payments or contributions to a pension fund. To protect yourself from unplanned spending, a good solution would be to set a limit on payments and cash withdrawals.

Benefits of getting a virtual card

It is also worth issuing a virtual card because it is not linked to a bank account. Its replenishment is carried out autonomously and is in no way connected with the account on which the main funds are located. This makes it practically inaccessible to scammers, especially if you do not use a plastic card. The virtual card cannot be lost. It follows from this that there is no need to waste time and nerves on its restoration and wait for the opportunity to use it again.

Using a virtual card, you can book flights and pay for hotel rooms. However, in this case, you need to take into account one nuance – the prepayment must be in full.

Bank cards for traveling from the financial company WestStein are protected by a PIN code and the Mastercard 3D Secure security system. All financial transactions on the card are reflected in your personal account and in the mobile application, which is very convenient and accessible for control at any time and anywhere with the Internet.

To control the movement of funds on the card from the financial company WestStein, banking has been developed. After each financial transaction comes a report in the form of a message.

We wish you unforgettable travels with the virtual card from WestStein!
