What is the Gusto Pass meal card?

  • Electronic meal vouchers represent an extra-salary benefit on a card, which contains an equivalent amount to that of the paper vouchers. Monthly, the card will be charged with the same amount as the one for that employee's paper meal vouchers. The loading value will be calculated based on the value of the ticket in lei (which can be up to 15,18 lei) for each day worked, just like for the meal vouchers received on paper.
