You can use your VISA card just like for any other online purchases. This means that you can use all of your debit/credit limit, and receive bonus points if your card is part of a loyalty programme.
Visa’s paying circuit is widely spread all over the world and few issuers are considered as trustworthy as Visa when it comes to easy and secure payments by credit card. With your Visa card, you can purchase goods in an easy and secure way, regardless if you are in a shop or buying something online, over the phone or via mail. Visa’s payment system is available around the clock. If something goes wrong, you can always feel safe – Visa’s regulations will protect you in case of fraud or theft.

Bonus Points and Fidelity Programmes

Many different issuers offer Visa cards which are associated with bonus or fidelity programmes. For example, you can use the Barclaycard Freedom Rewards card, which will give you 2 points for every £ 1 spent at UK supermarkets, petrol stations and Transport for London and 1 point for every £ 1 spent anywhere else. You can then redeem the points you have earned for a range of different rewards.


VISA does not accept payments to the following types of recipients:
  • Card Issuers
  • Debt Collectors
  • BitCoin/Crypto currency companies
  • Gambling and casinos
Visa Europe makes it possible for competing banks to offer their cards and payment services to millions of cardholders and merchants in Europe. Visa’s mission is to provide the products and services that make transactions fast, secure and convenient.
*For some cards, deviations from basic bonus schemes, refunds, frequent flyer programs or promotions/discounts may occur. Please contact your card issuer or our customer service for more information about your specific card.
