Why is my card declined at toll booths & parkings?

Your Spendesk plastic card is prepaid. As such, when you try to pay, the merchant needs to check that you have sufficient funds on your card to make the payment.

However, toll booths and parkings do not have an Internet connection. Therefore you may find that you are unable to use your card in these places.


Parkings sometimes offer to pay on automatic terminal, outside of the parking, which are connected and will accept your card.

Keep in mind:

It can also happen in stores, in trains, in restaurants where payment terminals aren't connected to the Internet preventing the merchants from charging the card.
