Using your cards abroad saves you the hassle and worry of carrying cash.  It also reduces the need to bring different currencies when travelling extensively, making it easier to budget.

With Ulster Bank, we help to protect you while you are abroad, so before you go:

  • Make sure you've provided us with your mobile number in case we need to contact you.
  • Take a note of our emergency contact number should you have any problems with your cards.

Remember to take your EHIC card with you if you're travelling in Europe, this will let you get state healthcare at a reduced cost or sometimes for free - you will still need Travel Insurance.

Don't forget, if you have a current account with benefits with us, you could be covered by our travel insurance.

NatWest travel money Leftover currency?

When you return from your trip, we will gladly buy back your leftover foreign currency notes and Travellers Cheques, providing the notes are in an acceptable condition. Remember, we don't buy back coins or certain denominations of bank notes and will only purchase currency that we deal in at that time.
