Order travel money

It is always a good idea to have some cash when you travel.

We offer over 70 different currencies via Eurochange with 0% exchange rate commission.

You can check your destinations ATM and card usage under the "money" section of your destination country. This helps you to plan how much cash you might need.

Understand your fees

Select and reward account customers will be charged a fee of 2.75% on all non-sterling transactions including ATM withdrawals. 

We recommend that you pay in local currency  rather than Sterling so that you get the most up to date exchange rate. 

Our card currency calculator helps you get a clearer picture of conversion rates and charges when using your card abroad. 

How to freeze your card

If you misplace your card you can easily freeze it in the mobile app in 3 steps. Alternatively, you can also freeze it using online banking. 

If your card has been lost or stolen you can let us know via the app.

Set up Google Pay and Apple Pay

You can use Google pay and Apple pay on your mobile device or wearables on the go without your debit card. 

It is such an easy, secure and quick way to pay and you can pay for larger transactions than you can with contactless.
