Credit cards: Things you should know

  • Many credit cards use the Visa or Mastercard payment processing networks. The credit card network used, in the case of Visa and Mastercard, does not have a major impact on card fees and charges.
  • If the credit card network, card type, rewards program or other details like insurance benefits matter to you, just use the filters included in the credit card comparison tool to find cards that match your criteria.
  • Carrying a balance: If you expect to carry a balance, you can use the “Payment by installments” filter to find the cards to use for long-term credit.
  • Getting cash in Switzerland or abroad using a credit card is a fair bit more expensive than making cash withdrawals with a debit card. Using a debit card to get cash is always preferable to getting a credit card cash advance.
  • There is no such thing as a completely free credit card. You can learn more about «free» credit cards here.
