Visa/Mastercard Prepaid with no credit score checks

I can't use SBB Visa prepaid Card to buy certain flights and things because of the company that operates it on behalf of Visa isn't always accepted. Are there any other Visa/Mastercard prepaid cards available in CH that don't require credit score checks?

I need for the internet primarily but it might be useful in some offline world situations.

Many thanks in advance.

Coop or Migros credit cards are free, I think they also have pre-paid cards.

Migros does for sure: http://www.migrosbank.ch/de/Private/...rd/default.htm

Coop has one too: http://www.bankcoop.ch/factsheet-pre...rcard-visa.pdf

Swissmicsi.com is great, they are a small start up and very reasonable, I think they use mastercard if I remember correctly...

What does this mean? A Visa card is a Visa card, surely??

Bonuscard AG operate the SBB card and Jelmoli's Bonus card. Do you mean you want a higher credit limit??

I heard that it doesn't work on some airline websites because whomever operates on behalf of Visa for the SBB cards isn't accepted. To be honest I don't know much about such things.

Cornercard has pre-paid cards. Load them up and pull the trigger.

They are a first tier processor. SBB, Coop, Migros are 2nd tier using CS, GE, etc for processing.

What you heard is rubbish. Have you actually tried to use the card with "some airline websites"??

I don't remember what airline(s) this was a problem as its a while ago I was told this. Maybe it was in the past when this was true or perhaps this person was misinformed but I've not tried to book it myself so I can't say.
