Can I have a contactless credit and debit card?

Credit cards

If your application for a credit card has been accepted, you will automatically receive a contactless card.

Debit cards

The majority of our accounts allow you to have a contactless debit card. However, there is one exception:

  • They are not issued to customers or to those whose account is subject to an overdraft control or any other type of restriction on their account.

If you are not eligible for a contactless card, we will continue to issue you with the same type of VISA Debit card you currently receive. Please note this type of debit card has slightly reduced functionality as it cannot be used at payment terminals that don't connect to the bank's systems. These terminals are not common; examples include unattended petrol pumps and some terminals on trains or aeroplanes.
