Enjoy the convenience of cashless shopping with the Deutsche Bank International Classic Debit Card.
Your Debit Card is an EMV Chip Card (Europay, Mastercard and Visa, a global standard for inter-operation of integrated circuit cards) offering greater security when you transact. The microchip on the face of this card stores customer data in a secured manner, making it extremely difficult to copy. This advanced technology is more effective in preventing your card from being copied to produce counterfeit cards.
For better acceptability across merchants, the EMV Debit Cards will also contain a magnetic strip on the reverse of the card to ensure swipe transactions. However, we recommend that you use your EMV Chip Card only at merchant terminals with chip capability to avoid skimming frauds.
