8. We won’t charge a late fee for any credit card payments due from 1st April until 30th June 2020. You don’t need to get in touch, we will do this automatically. You should still try to make at least your minimum monthly payment on time to avoid affecting your ability to get credit in the future.
9. The limit for contactless spending with your debit or credit card is increasing from £30 to £45. Retailers need to update their systems to accept these changes, so you don’t need to contact us if your contactless payment over £30 is declined, simply continue to use chip and PIN. You’ll still need to occasionally enter your PIN when presenting your card to prove it’s really you.
