Worauf man bei der Auswahl einer Kreditkarte achten sollte

Hohe Gebühren, Angst vor Missbrauch oder die Angst vor dem Kontrollverlust - die Gründe, warum man sich gegen eine Kreditkarte entscheiden kann, sind vielfältig. Doch am Ende überwiegen die positiven Aspekte, weil eine Kreditkarte einerseits Bezahlvorgänge einfacher gestaltet, andererseits jederzeit - auch im Urlaub außerhalb der Euro-Zone - verwendet werden kann. Ob Mastercard, VISA oder Diners Club - bekannte Kreditkartengesellschaften, die mit unterschiedlichen Banken kooperieren und zahlreiche Produkte anbieten. Genau deshalb ist es wichtig, dass man im Vorfeld - sofern man sich etwa für VISA entschieden hat - einen VISA Kreditkarte Vergleichn durchführt. Bevor man sich jedoch mit den Gebühren und Leistungen der Kreditkarte befasst, sollte man sich die Frage beantworten, welche Art von Kreditkarte man will.

Die unterschiedlichen Modelle

Entscheidet man sich für eine Debit-Karte, so folgt die Abbuchung aller getätigten Umsätze nach Verwendung der Kreditkarte - das heißt, diese Art der Kreditkarte verfolgt das Prinzip der Girokarte. Die Debit-Karte kann zudem nur im Rahmen des am Konto zur Verfügung stehenden Guthabens genutzt werden - sie ist somit direkt an das Girokonto angebunden. Vorwiegend werden derartige Kreditkarten von Direktbanken angeboten. Ein ähnliches Prinzip verfolgt die Prepaid-Karte - dabei handelt es sich um eine Kreditkarte ohne Verfügungsrahmen. Nur dann, wenn im Vorfeld Geld auf die Karte transferiert wurde, kann diese auch benutzt werden. Anders hingegen das Prinzip der Charge-Karte: Hier sammelt der Anbieter die Umsätze, die sodann einmal im Monat vom angegebenen Girokonto abgebucht werden - bis zur Tilgung erhält der Kartenbesitzer somit einen zinsfreien Kredit. Bei der Revolving Karte handelt es sich um eine Kombination aus Rahmenkredit und Kreditkarte. In diesem Fall wird dem Kartenbesitzer ein Rahmenkredit zur Verfügung gestellt. Zu beachten ist jedoch, dass die Zinsen, die für den gewährten Kredit bezahlt werden müssen, höher als normale Ratenkreditzinsen sind.

Jahresgebühr und Kartenlimit

Hat man sich für eine Kreditkartenart entschieden, so geht es in weiterer Folge um die Gebühren und Leistungen. Wie hoch ist die Jahresgebühr? Sind eine oder mehrere Versicherungen - so etwa eine Auslandskranken- oder auch Rücktrittsversicherung - inkludiert? Wie hoch ist der Verfügungsrahmen? Nur dann, wenn im Vorfeld ein Vergleich durchgeführt wird, kann man am Ende sicher sein, das für sich beste Angebot gefunden zu haben.

    You have not seen anything like this! A professional artist in glass and wood, Earl Baldock was a cabinet-maker who hand-built the interior of this house in a harmonious synthesis of California Arts & Crafts with fine Japanese style.

In the sunken living room is another slate fireplace. Four multi-pane doors open from the living room to an extraordinary Japanese style garden, with a little waterfall and a stream connecting two ponds. The larger pond has over a dozen Koi. In the evenings, in addition to the gentle sound of running water, you hear the many frogs that inhabit the garden (and the neighbors' gardens, as well). All in all, this is a most special property.
