Greater payment convenience with the bank card Bankkaart

What is a bank card?

A bank card, also known as a debit card, is a payment card linked to a current account. You can use them across Europe as standard and outside Europe on request. If you pay with your bank card at the till or withdraw money at an ATM, the amount will be debited from your account immediately.

Advantages of the bank card

Carrying a lot of money while you're shopping or travelling? It's a risk you can easily avoid. The bank card lets you pay securely in shops and petrol stations in Europe, as standard. You can also withdraw money in our secured Self lobbies and at any ATM with the Bancontact, Maestro, Cirrus or Eufiserv logo.

Did you know that you can make online purchases using your bank card? In all online shops displaying the Maestro and/or Bancontact logos, you can simply use your bank card to make payment. All you need is a card reader. This will ensure that the payment is secure.

Using your bank card and your card reader you can log in and carry out transactions in PC banking or Easy banking, our secured internet application for online banking. This lets you sort out your banking securely from any PC or telephone with an internet connection, 24/7, anywhere in the world.

Any branch can issue you with a temporary replacement card straight away. You will need to apply for your permanent new card in branch or by phoning +32 (0)2 762 60 00. You will receive your new card in the post within 5 bank business days, or you can collect it in branch.
