BOV Contactless cards

Christmas is a time of traditional gift-giving. Finding the perfect gift for everyone requires an adequate level of planning and with today’s busy lifestyle, what is considered as the most wonderful time of the year, might easily become the most hectic.

Ahead of the festive season, Bank of Valletta is urging its customers to make things a little bit simpler by making their purchases with the BOV Contactless Cards for a broad spectrum of transactions, from paying for gifts and purchases to dining out and booking their holidays.

The BOV Contactless Cards provide the cardholder with simple and straightforward solutions that are compatible with the modern lifestyle. Contactless cards are also ideal for low-value payments, where purchases of less than €20 do not even require a PIN authorisation. For purchases of higher amounts, all the security features one finds in a normal card be it credit or debit are also found on contactless cards.

THE BOV Cards Christmas promotion is an educational one that aims at highlighting the benefits linked to BOV cards in a bid to encourage cardholders to overcome their hesitation and use their cards instead of traditional payment methods like cash and cheques.

For further information about the Bank’s suite of BOV credit and debit cards, one may refer to any BOV Branch by contacting the Bank’s Customer Service Centre on 2131 2020 or by logging on
