You don’t have to tell us when you’re going abroad – you can use your card for shopping and withdrawing cash wherever you see the Visa sign, just like you would at home. If we have any concerns about a transaction made using your card, we’ll get in touch to check it’s genuine.
If you use your debit card to make a payment abroad, you’ll be charged a 2.75% transaction fee. If you withdraw cash, you’ll be charged the 2.75% transaction fee and a £1.50 cash fee. But you won’t be charged the cash fee if you use one of our cash machines or one belonging to a Global Alliance partner bank.
If you have our app, you can control how your debit card is used abroad through ‘In-store international spending’ in the ‘Cards’ section. You can find out more about this feature in our ‘Cards management’ page.
