We’re working on our systems. Learn more.
We're on your side, wherever you're heading
There’s no need – our fraud detection systems keep an eye on your accounts while you’re overseas, just like they do in the UK. If we spot a transaction we’re unsure about, we’ll call or text you straightaway.
We need an up-to-date number for you so we can call or text you while you're away – say, if your card is blocked because of suspicious activity. To update your mobile number, log in to our Internet Bank.
Check your balance in a cash machine or buy something using Chip and PIN at an air or sea port. This lets our systems know you’re about to travel. Just note we may still contact you about transactions abroad.
Don’t worry – we’ll be there to get everything back to normal. We’ll usually call or text you on the mobile number you’ve given us to check if it was you who made the transaction that blocked your card.
If you miss our call, don’t worry – we’ll always give you a number to call back on. Answer some security questions, and we’ll get your cards working again.
