Visa is continuously expanding the acceptance network in the Czech Republic and enables consumers as well as businesses to access digital payments in various areas such as smart cities like Pilsen, Ostrava or now Prague. A project initiated by Prague Public Transit Co. has helped to equip Prague trams with contactless terminal readers accepting payment cards, mobile phones or wearables. Visa cardholders can thus enjoy easier and faster commuting in Prague with a tap.
Passengers thus do not need to carry coins or decide which kind of ticket to buy when traveling – all they have to do is show up and ride by tapping their credit, debit or pre-paid card. Furthermore, newly installed terminal readers understand several languages as the result to the growing trend in tourism and an increasing number of foreigners in the capital. Payments are based on the very same mechanisms like other contactless transactions that are installed in regular stores.
Once you’re on your trip in Prague, make the most of your Visa card and experience Prague the local way. Find out more about all the great locations to discover here.
