Debit cards

The simple way to pay, at home and abroad

At home and abroad

Your Clydesdale Bank debit card allows you to pay for a wide range of goods and services at millions of locations worldwide. Use your card anywhere you see the MasterCard or Maestro acceptance mark – depending upon your own card type.

If you intend to use your cards abroad it is advisable to let us know your travel plans at least 24 hours in advance. Please contact Direct Banking on 0800 345 7 365.

† Purchase spending limits and transaction fees apply when you use your debit card abroad.

Touch and pay

If your debit MasterCard is contactless, you can pay for items up to £30* without having to enter your PIN. Just touch your card against the contactless card reader when you’re ready to pay. You’ll hear a beep and see a green light on the reader. You’ve paid.

* From 1st September 2015 the limit increased from £20 to £30. However, it may take some time for the limit increase to be available at every point of sale.
