Quick shopping in London or Paris over the weekend? Why not – these fantastic destinations are just 2 hours away from most Polish airports. Additionally, they offer not only a bigger choice but often also lower prices than those you pay for famous brands in Poland. The shopping tourism is growing in popularity for obvious reasons.
If your debit card is linked to your currency account (EUR, USD or other), the foreign transaction may not be cost-effective if there is the double currency conversion applied. Then, the transaction amount will be first converted to PLN, applying the exchange rate of the settling agent to be later converted from PLN into the currency of your account to which your debit card is linked, applying the exchange rate specified in the table of exchange rates.
After you are back from your trip, you need to remember to again link your debit card to your PLN account. Usually, you can do it on your own online or by calling to your bank. It can be concluded that travelling can be cheaper, safer and more convenient. You only need to be aware of what, apart from a savings account, a loan and investments, your bank can offer you.
