Precautions with Bancontact cards when you go in holidays

These precautions should be taken BEFORE your departure or when you’re still in your hometown or country. Not only can you lose your Bancontact card but it can also be retained for reasons outside your own responsibility. ATMs do their work most of the time but not always as they can get a defect. Normally in these circumstances, you go to your domiciliation bank office and ask for a new Bancontact card. You get a temporary card and your new definitive card will be sent to your home and also on a different date your new secret code. But what when you are abroad 1000s of kilometers from your home? The point is that an ordinary e-mail or phone call to your bank adviser doesn’t give the bank enough guarantee about your identity. To prevent any form of fraud the bank needs more trustworthy methods to send you a new Bancontactcard when it’s not you in person they have to deal with.
