Purchases abroad - Amexcredit Payments

You may ask your bank to pay for all your purchases abroad using the Amexcredit method. The interest on the payments is determined by the bank and changes from time to time. It is recommended to contact your branch before leaving the country.

In which cases should the business request our permission to perform a transaction?
Businesses and banks are allowed, and in some cases are indeed required to ask our permission in advance to executing a business transaction or cash withdrawal. We use a flexible automatic system for this purpose which normally operates 24 hours a day. This system has limitations which derive, amongst other things, from the provisions of the Israeli law and from accepted rules of credit cards.

In case of difficulties, it is possible to receive special permits other than by means of the automatic system.
When required and when our office is open, you may also call us from abroad. Should your application is found to be justified, we will bear the expenses. If you want to plan special purchases which are essential to your trip abroad, without being able to make inquiries at the time of transaction since our office is closed, please find out in advance the possibilities of using the card.
