Is there such a thing as dual network credit cards in Switzerland?

In China you could get Unionpay/Visa or Unionpay/Mastercard credit cards which worked on both networks (like those issued by BOC).

Very convenient for those who travel a lot because different networks are more accepted in different parts of the world.

Has anyone heard of credit cards like this in Switzerland?

Currently, Swiss credit card issuers do not offer dual-network credit cards.

However, some Swiss banks bundle separate credit cards from different networks into one package deal. For example, packages which include both an American Express and MasterCard credit cards are available.

Many Swiss issuers will also issue the same credit card as either a Visa or a MasterCard, depending on which best suits your needs.
