A card for the chosen few

EARLIER this year UniCredit Bank became the first bank in Slovakia to offer chosen private clients the prestigious international VISA Infinite card.

EARLIER this year UniCredit Bank became the first bank in Slovakia to offer chosen private clients the prestigious international VISA Infinite card.

The exclusive card claims to merge luxury with discretion, and offers top products provided by VISA.

For the time being only around 360 Slovaks hold the card because it is limited to selected clients invited to apply by the bank, UniCredit Bank said in a press release.

VISA Infinite enables its holders to use UniCredit Bank’s concierge service. This round-the-clock assistant includes services like comprehensive travel insurance, legal assistance, interpreting, and medical services, through to booking a hotel or restaurant, ordering a limousine, obtaining a taxi at very short notice or ordering a gift.

According to Raymond Kopka, director of private banking at UniCredit Bank in Slovakia, customers have used the concierge service, aside from financial services, for freeing a dog from a locked car, arranging a New Year party near the Colosseum in Rome, booking a golf course in Dubai, as well as obtaining a sold-out book.

The card also provides Unicredit Bank clients with automatic access to Priority Pass, the world’s largest independent airport lounge access programme.

The card holder, as well as his guests, can use any one of 600 VIP airport lounges at 325 airports around the world.
