Hi

Does "access card" mean the card you use to gain access to somewhere? Is the different from "smart card"?


Is it used in AME too ?


Thanks

    It is used in AmE. "Access card" means an electronic card whose purpose is to unlock the doors in a specific building.

    "Smart card" is a general term for a card containing complicated electronics. Normally it means a bank card (credit or debit card).
