A credit card is a practical thing. Especially when you travel abroad a lot. Dare to compare and save money today, because most cards often cost a lot of money for basic fees or other costs.

A comparison of credit cards is always worthwhile

There are now many different credit cards available, so you can compare the offers. Make sure that you only apply for credit cards from a German bank. There are plenty of offers abroad, some of which are unfortunately dubious. In Austria you don’t have to worry, of course, but with an unknown bank in the Netherlands you do.

Credit cards are accepted in 30 million shops, restaurants and hotels. In many cases it is even necessary, for example when renting a car. Even in the EU you won’t get very far without a credit card. When you withdraw from ATMs with your EC card, you often pay high fees. If you pay with the card right away, you can only save. (Can I use my EC card abroad?)

Use credit cards on the internet

Credit cards are particularly advantageous on the Internet. There you can pay for the goods directly. This means that the seller receives his money immediately and can send the goods without waiting. If you are in urgent need of something or just want to download a few Mp3s, a credit card is ideal. A prepaid credit card is usually sufficient for such transactions. This is even cheaper in comparison and you have the advantage that you cannot get into debt. With the prepaid variant, you have to transfer money to the card at the beginning. If the credit is used up, you can no longer pay with it.
