How do I control how my debit card is used abroad with my Barclays app?

When you’re outside the UK, you can use your debit card from anywhere you see the Visa sign. 

You can switch off in-store international spending to prevent your card being used in shops, restaurants and bars abroad. This won’t stop it being used for withdrawing cash, or any online or recurring payments. You can block and unblock payments to shops, bars and restaurants abroad in your app1 – just follow these steps

  • Under ‘Quick links’ on your home screen, tap ‘Cards’
  • Select your debit card
  • Tap ‘In-store international spending’
  • Turn the switch off or on for in-store international spending
Important information
  1. You must be 16 or over to use the app. Terms and conditions apply.
