The Prepaid Card is ideal for
- travellers who need an alternative to their credit card and want to set their own “personal spending limits” in advance
- young people learning to handle their own money. It’s the handiest “wallet” for pocket money or cash gifts and the perfect introduction to cashless payments at the same time.
NEW — Go digital!
Now you can apply for your Prepaid Card in record time with our fully digital procedure! (You must be 18 or older.)
In this procedure you will be asked to identify yourself by VideoID and sign your application form with a digital signature.
You will need a webcam, a microphone, a current photo ID (passport or official personal ID) and your mobile phone. VideoID applications can be made any day of the week, but only between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. (CET).
For more information, see our FAQs.
Of course you can still apply for a Prepaid Card without VideoID, using the online application assistant as before.
A prepaid card carries a previously loaded credit balance. This makes it particularly secure and ideal for online purchases, but it can be used for everyday shopping as well. You can top up your credit balance at any time.
