Especially when traveling, a credit card is very helpful. It can easily be used to rent a car, pay for a hotel, book a flight or order something online. Usually banks charge a yearly fee (e.g. 29€) for a credit card and sometimes you will have a fee for paying in another currency or using it in another country. Luckily there is an offer from Advanzia Bank, which gives you a completely free Mastercard Gold! There is no fee whatsoever, it is completely free to use.

I can really recommend to check out their offer and request a free credit card, I have been personally using one for over two years and I have never had any problems.
Normally, the first credit limit is 300€ per month, but after a few months of on-time-payment this limit will be increased to over 3000€. After two years, my limit is now 5000€ per month.
You also don’t need a new bank account, you just have to wire the money from your existing bank account to your credit card account. Additionally, the credit period is up to seven weeks.
As a special bonus, if you pay at least 50% of your traveling cost with your MasterCard Gold, you will get a free travel insurance.
