The cards can be used for online purchases and in more than 33 million locations worldwide which display the MasterCard acceptance mark. They can also be used to withdraw cash at ATMs.

Customers can check the balance and top-up over the phone, via internet banking or in branch. An additional card for added peace of mind when on holiday is available free of charge as is free 24/7 global assistance from a UK call centre where trained advisers are on-hand to help with a range of queries from balance enquiries and PIN requests to assistance with lost or stolen cards.
