Raiffeisenbank is offering the Raiffeisen Visa Travel co-branded debit card, available from March 4, 2013. Earlier, only Raiffeisen Visa Travel Card credit cards were offered.

Bonus miles can be exchanged for various travel services offered by iGlobe.ru website, such as air travel, hotels, car rentals, etc.
