Fast and easy payments abroad

Thanks to the services of BNP Paribas Fortis, making payments abroad with your bank card or credit card is as fast and secure as payments at home.

Together, we ensure payment convenience and security for you while abroad

When travelling abroad, you want things to go as smoothly as possible. We help by ensuring optimum payment convenience for you while abroad. The security of your payments is a priority for us. To prevent fraud, credit and debit cards have a number of standard restrictions. You can find out more below about these security restrictions and how to easily unblock them. These restrictions do not apply for online payments. You will also find useful information on how to order foreign currency.

Your card is valid all over the world, including the United States

Are you planning a trip to the other side of the Atlantic? Do you want to hire a car from a French car hire company? Are you travelling on an Italian cruise ship? Your credit card is automatically activated for use in these kinds of situations. Rest assured that you can pay while you travel!

Maestro outside Europe

You can make payments in and outside Europe with your bank card using the Maestro function. To prevent fraud, the use of Maestro is limited to European countries by default. This is because outside Europe, your credit card's magnetic strip is used primarily for payment security. You can activate the Maestro function outside Europe by calling 02 261 11 11, visiting a BNP Paribas Fortis branch or going online to do so.

Ordering foreign currency

Would you like some foreign banknotes to make payments while travelling or when reaching your destination abroad? We will gladly help you. Order your foreign currency in time. Simply call your branch to order your foreign currency. You can also order your foreign currency online.
