Cost control

Do you know that the information about the balance and turnover of your current, foreign currency or transfer account, or about the monthly costs charged to your credit or prepaid card can be sent to the e-mail address you provide? This service is free of charge and can be contracted in any OTP banka branch and or via eLEMENT@ Internet banking.

The monthly statement delivered to you by the bank will include the record of costs incurred over the preceding accounting period, and your account will be debited on the day you chose as the most convenient for you. You can check the receipts you have from the preceding accounting period against the itemised statement.

If you wish, you can settle the expenses as soon as they are accrued, and thus replenish the available credit even before the due date.

As for the revolving model, the mandatory monthly payment of only 5% of the utilised revolving credit is automatically charged every month to your current or foreign currency account. You can be issued a card even if you do not hold a current or a foreign currency account with OTP banka. If you do hold a current account with OTP banka, such account automatically becomes the primary settlement account, or the secondary settlement account, in case you choose your foreign currency account to be the primary one (which basically means that, in case there are no sufficient funds in your foreign currency account, any unsettled portion of the debt will be debited to your current account). If you wish, your payment may exceed the set minimum amount, or you may choose to repay the debt in full. Each payment towards credit settlement increases the amount available for further spending, i.e. the credit amount is renewed up to the approved credit limit. 
Striving to ensure a simple and efficient control of the expenses, we will send you an itemised statement of all the expenses. 

All the expenses incurred abroad shall be shown in domestic currency on your monthly statement. You can receive your monthly statement of account to your e-mail address free of charge if you contract the service via eLEMENT@ Internet banking or in your nearest OTP banka branch!

Using the services of OTPdirekteLEMENT@ Internet banking or telephone banking, via Internet or by calling the Contact Centre on 0800 210 021, you can check the transactions on your credit account at your convenience, you can check the notifications on costs incurred and make payments without having to come to the bank.

You can efficiently control the use of your card also via SMS info service. 
If you use eLEMENT@ Internet banking service, you can have an insight into the itemised costs, and do not need to have a hard copy of the statement delivered to your address. Of course, at your request, the itemised statement can be delivered to any address you choose.

 

Interest accrual

Interest is not accrued for the purchases made in the current accounting period, i.e. the period lasting one month, between two revolving credit accounting dates (the last and the upcoming one). 
According to the revolving model, interest is charged on cash withdrawal transactions from the date the transaction is recorded in the Bank until the date the payment is made.
The interest is accrued for the utilised revolving credit amount until final repayment of such revolving credit, as stipulated by Bank’s internal regulations.

The amount of accrued interest is reported in the itemised invoice information and is fully included into the minimum revolving credit amount to be repaid monthly.
