Want to use your card abroad?

Most debit card providers will charge a foreign purchase fee of up to 2.99%. 

  • Credit cards are widely accepted overseas, look out for the Visa and MasterCard logos. Exchange rates are set by Visa and MasterCard and can change every day.
  • When you use your card abroad, you can sometimes pay in sterling rather than local currency. Paying this way is often more expensive than paying in the local currency as there could be a local charge.
  • If your debit card is contactless, you can use it abroad like you can at home. Just look for the contactless symbol. Limits can vary when you’re in another country.
  • Let us know that you're going away at least 24 hours before you leave and we'll do our best to make sure that none of your payments are blocked. 

Looking to make an international payment?

Whether you're looking to send or receive money from overseas, explore our range of payment options to find a transfer method that suits you. 

You can benefit from lower transactions fees using ibanking plus, our fast and secure internet banking service. 

What is an IBAN?

To make and receive payments overseas you'll have to use an International Bank Account Number (IBAN). 

An IBAN is always used in conjunction with a Bank Identifier Code (BIC) - a sequence of numbers and letters which identifies a bank and branch.

Use our IBAN checker to be sure that your IBAN is valid before sending a payment.
