Paying on holidays

  • Useful

  • Easy

  • Secure



You love to travel… but prefer to do so hassle free? Ever since the introduction of the euro, payments in the euro zone have become a lot simpler! And thanks to your bank or credit card, even worldwide payments have become as easy as pie.
Please note: Maestro is only available within geographical Europe. If you would like to use your Maestro card in other countries as well, please make an appointment at your nearest ING branch or call our help desk on +32 2 464 60 04. This is not necessary for your credit card, which is already ready for use anywhere in the world.

  • If you are travelling to a country outside the euro zone, request the currency of your holiday destination at your ING branch well in advance.
  • To be safe, take different means of payment when going on holiday.
  • Want to be able to transfer money, check your credit card payments, download account statements, etc. while on holiday or abroad? Be sure to pack your ING Card Reader and your bank card. You can then use a computer to log in to Home’Bank. To use our ING Smart Banking apps for smartphone or tablet, all you need is your profile code.


In most shops outside Belgium, you can pay just as you would at home by using your credit or debit card!
Please note: You can only use your Maestro card within geographical Europe unless you request an exception from your branch in advance. For your credit card, you do not have to do anything, it is automatically activated for payments and withdrawals anywhere in the world.

Withdrawing money

  • You can use your credit card for problem-free money withdrawals at ATMs with the Visa or MasterCard logo here and abroad.
  • You can also use your Maestro-enabled ING Bank Card to withdraw money from public ATMs with the Maestro or Cirrus logo.

Making payments in shops

  • You can use your credit card to pay in shops with a point-of-sale terminal bearing the Visa or MasterCard logo both here and abroad.
  • In shops with a Bancontact/Mister Cash or Maestro point-of-sale terminal, you can also pay with your Maestro-enabled ING Bank Card.
