VISA / MasterCard cards are accepted for payment in all retail outlets worldwide where the VISA or MasterCard logo is shown and the retailer accepts that type of cards.
This depends on the type of card.

Up-to-date information on charges and fees is provided in the
price list of the bank.
If you pay in a country where EUR is the official currency, no fee will be charged. If you pay in a country with other official currency, then a fee as a percentage of the purchase amount will be charged. Up-to-date information on fees is provided in the

If the legal name or given name/surname of the beneficiary don’t match the account number (IBAN), then payment to a Swedbank account will not be executed. In case of payment to another bank in Estonia, it will be forwarded to the beneficiary bank that is entitled to either execute the payment based only on the IBAN account number stated or reject the payment.
If the payment is in euros to another bank in Estonia, there may be a possibility to cancel the payment by calling our Customer Service on 631 0310. If the payment has already sent to beneficiary bank, you can request cancellation of the payment through the bank. The cancellation form is available in the section “Bank messages”. Please check our price list for fees. We are unable to cancel a payment without the beneficiary’s consent.
If the payment is between Swedbank accounts, it cannot be cancelled. Please contact the account holder and ask them to return the payment. If this is not possible, you can request revocation of the payment through the bank. The revocation form is available in the section “Bank messages”. Please check our price list for fees. We are unable to cancel a payment without the beneficiary’s consent.
Domestic payments are sent to the beneficiary's bank usually on the same business day if the payment has been debited from the remitter's account before 16.30. Payments sent by the remitter after 16.30, at weekends and on public holidays are debited, but sent to the beneficiary's bank on the next business day.
Swedbank’s new app, ‘Swedbank 2019 in Estonia’ enables private clients to make up to 15,000 euros in instant payments in a 24-hour period. These payments generally reach the recipient immediately. Instant payments can be made to all banks that offer the opportunity of receiving them. You can check with the recipient’s bank whether they enable instant payments.
If you need to make a payment to other Swedbank account in a currency other than EUR, use the domestic payment form as usual.
If you need to make a payment to other bank in Estonia in a currency other than EUR, use the international payment form.
This could be due to a couple of reasons:
A payment is executed if the account balance has decreased by the amount of the payment and the payment appears in the account statement and the payment history as “Done”.
The payment process does not depend entirely on Swedbank – it also depends on the beneficiary bank and the intermediary bank.
Payments to accounts with European banks are reserved on the same day as when executed and are delivered to the beneficiary bank or intermediary bank on the following working day. International payments are executed depending on the payment type. For further details, see the maturities of services under price list.
In the payment history section, check:
If the payment status is “Done”, but the beneficiary details are incorrect, please send us a bank message under section „Cancellation or amendment of international payment”. Please check the fees in the
To make a domestic or international payment in other currency:
If the account lacks the currency necessary for the payment and no coverage currency is selected, the payment will not be executed.
The coverage currency must be selected upon execution of a payment order. It is another currency in the account that will be used towards covering the missing amount in case the account lacks funds for making the payment or paying the fee in the currency specified.
The currency necessary for executing the payment transaction is converted to the remitter using the bank’s transfer rate effective at the time of executing the payment transaction.
A discounted rate is offered for amounts exceeding 10 000 euros between 8.30 am and 5 pm on business days. Please contact our customer service +372 631 0130.
If a payment made via Internet Bank is cancelled, most often the reason is that the payment cannot be executed due to lack of details in the payment form. The mandatory payment fields are marked with asterisk. Additional information about payment details needed can be found under "question mark". If the payment is returned by the beneficiary bank or correspondent bank, the reason of the refusal is provided in the detailed information about the payment.
Please wait up to 15 minutes after you’ve executed the payment. We recommend checking the
“List of payments” for your payment which may have been made with a future date in error – the status of such payments is “Future payment ”.

Points can be collected in the reward programme with all Swedbank bank cards, including both debit and credit cards, owned by private persons. Bank cards of children are also included in the programme. To order a gift, the child must have an internet bank user agreement which can be concluded from age 7
No, they cannot. Reward points are linked to a specific person.
You can see the amount of your reward points and their expiry date by logging in to Swedbank’s internet bank. The expiry date indicates that the points will expire on that date and will be deleted from your reward account.
The validity period is calculated based on the reward account, for example, when paying with debit and credit cards a reward account will be created, to which reward points will accumulate for two years. When the two years is up, all points on the reward account will expire, incl. those collected even a month before the end of the two-year validity period of the reward account. Points are saved to the reward account on a regular basis and are valid for up to 2 years. All points of a reward account will expire once the expiry date of the reward account arrives and all reward points have the same expiry date. For example, points collected a year ago expire at the same time as points collected a month before the expiry date.
Expired reward points can not be reinstated. We therefore advise you to use the points as early as possible, but no later than one day before the expiry date. The points you have earned earlier are annulled first on the expiry date and the new points earned for the transactions performed in the previous month are then added to your account. The new collection period begins on the same day.
Once you have chosen a suitable gift from the reward programme page, you will receive a bank notification within 20 days reminding you of what you have ordered and where you can collect it from.
You can pick up your gift as soon as you have received the bank notification. Specific details regarding the time period during which the message of when to collect the gift/use a discount is sent are displayed by each gift.
Gifts must be collected within 1 month of the bank notification reaching the internet bank.
As an exception, bank notifications are not sent for the order of magazines and newspapers.
Ordered gifts must be collected within one month of the date the bank notification was received (unless otherwise stated in the bank notification). If you are unsure whether you are able to collect the gift yourself, add authorisation for someone to collect it on your behalf when you place the order. Even in the event that you have authorised someone else to collect your gift, you can always go and collect it yourself. You will be asked for ID before you are given the gift. If you are unable to collect the gift in time, your order will be annulled and the points you used to order the gift will not be reinstated.
If you are unable to collect your gift in time, your order will be annulled after the expiry of the redemption period and the points you used to order the gift will not be reinstated. That´s why we advise you to add authorisation for someone to collect the gift on your behalf at the right time when placing the order. Even in the event that you have authorised someone else to collect your gift, you can always go and collect it yourself.
Gifts ordered via the reward programme are only handed to the card holder in person or to an individual authorised by the person who has ordered the gift.
Authorisation can only be granted on the internet bank and at the time of ordering the gift.
The authorisation process requires the client to submit the name and date of birth of the person to be authorised.
When going to collect the gift, the authorised person must provide their identification document and inform our partner that they have come to collect a gift ordered by someone else (state the forename and surname of the orderer).
Regardless of the fact that someone else has been authorised to collect the gift, the person who actually placed the order can always collect the gift themselves by providing an identification document.
A child under the age of 7 cannot be authorised to collect a gift. In case of a child older than 7 years, it is enough for the child to present their identification document to collect the gift. In case of a child aged up to 18 years, the gift can also be collected from our partner by a parent by presenting their identification document and the birth certificate of the child.
The cover offered by health insurance varies in all European Union Member States. Visit the website of the National Health Insurance Fund to check which services are covered by national medical insurance at your destination and which services you have to pay for. For example, the European Health Insurance Card holders are usually obliged to pay for certain retention if the trip is prolonged due to illness or it is necessary to return home earlier than planned and thus organise it on one’s own.
With travel insurance you don’t have to worry about additional expenses, as these will be covered by insurance. Both expenses may amount to hundreds or even thousands of euros.

We will indemnify the expenses provided that:
If the departure is 4 to 24 hours late, we will indemnify up to 150 euros for incurring the required expenses. If the flight is delayed by more than 24 hours, we will indemnify a maximum of 300 euros.
