FYI, there’s a dedicated slot for your (emergency) credit card : underside of the centre console, where the USB slots are.
Not sure if it's because mine's a RHD, but that slot doesn't exist in my car.
Are you sure ? I think the card holder should be there, even if it's not mentioned in the manual (by the way and as far as I'm aware, it's not mentioned in the LHD car manuals either)
This is a picture I’ve found in this article on the internet of a RHD car : https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-dri ... -ride.html
I didn't know about the centre slot, just the two slots above my right knee. The problem with all these slots is that the credit card can be seen by looking through the driver's window - not ideal when parked up, hence my use of the bin.

Ok, I get the spare 20 quid. If you're car was broken into the fact that you have an XC40 means you could afford to lose 20 quid. I also understand the fuel card but you're all shying away from the credit card left in the car issue, which I still think is quite a daft thing to do.
On page 46 of this thread I only mentioned a « dedicated (emergency) credit card slot » because on the same page Jamie307 talked about using the waste paper basket to keep his locking wheel nut and his emergency credit card.
As far as I know, Volvo Cars itself never talked about a dedicated (emergency) credit card slot, so it’s just a card holder, and I don’t think Volvo even mentions that in it’s manuals.
In other words, Volvo Cars may very well never have seen this card holder as a credit card holder or slot, and to be honest, I certainly agree that leaving a credit card in the car isn’t a good idea, be it in the card holder or in the waste paper basket. And by the way, even Jamie307 doesn't say that he leaves his (emergency) credit card in the car.
Given today's technology, i don't see an issue with leaving the card in? Mine has exactly £0 and when needed i'll transfer some money from my other bank via phone app. Takes all of 20 seconds.
Besides that, it will alert me if it's used in a different location than my phone, and it takes another 5 secs to freeze it.
I think you're all trying to make an argument where there's none. It's a card slot and you're free to put in there whatever you fancy and feel safe to do so.
