The lastminute.com Visa card offers travelers numerous benefits: They can load their card with pound sterling, U.S. dollars and euros, enabling them to make payments or withdraw cash anywhere in the world. Travelers avoid currency conversion fees at the point of sale and profit from more competitive exchange rates.
Unlike classic credit cards, there are no dynamic currency conversion (DCC) fees for transfers, exchanges or purchases. Moreover, the cards are much safer than cash or traveler’s checks because they can be deactivated in no time if lost or stolen.
Sergio Signoretti, Chief Financial Officer at lastminute.com says, “We are delighted to offer this modern and convenient payment solution backed by our trusted partners Wirecard and Visa, which goes a great way to enriching the lives of travelers. We want the card to become the preferential payment method for our 10 million monthly website users in order to save money when traveling.”
