Credit Card

Permanent and temporary employees at UiB may apply for the credit card Eurocard. This is a corporate credit card to be registered in the name of the employee. The card is to be used for work-related travel expenses. The card cannot be used for payment of private expenses. Invoices will be sent to and must be paid by the cardholder. UiB's previous agreement with Diners is no longer valid.

Eurocard can be used globally and includes a travel insurance.

Ordering a credit card

  I hereby accept that my employer can deduct my salary in the event that I have not paid an invoice from the credit card company.

 

 

The application is submittet to the credit card company which forwards it for approval at your unit.

By using the card you may be insured. Please therefore register the card number at G Travel.

  3. Choose Form of payments on the page and fill in your credit card information

Register your credit card in the HR-portal (PAGA). This way your credit card transactions may be found for direct transfer to your travel expense account.

Book now – pay later

With this feature you will not be charged for your airfare until after your travel, even if you book your tickets well in advance. This agreement is called Book now - pay later (Norwegian only). You will be charged a fee that you can include in your travel expense account for refund. This way, you can purchase economy tickets that are available early. This is included in the agreement with the credit card provider.

Further information on travel insurance

If you use your credit card for the main part of your journey and use public transportation, you are insured by the credit card company. Considering that the state is self-insured, the budgeting unit at UiB saves a lot of money if a loss or an accident occurs.
