Increased limit for contactless card purchases

Please note that the limit for contactless card purchases has increased from £30 to £45 with effect from the 1st of April 2020.  This is part of an industry-wide initiative to reduce cash transactions and limit contact with PIN terminals in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

These new limits will be introduced across all retailers in coming weeks.  However, if the retailer has not yet upgraded, you will be unable to make a contactless payment of more than £30.  If you have any questions about cash or contactless payments, please contact your relationship manager who will be delighted to help.
