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® acceptance mark.

If you intend to use your card outside of Europe, it is advisable to let us know your travel plans. Please contact Direct Banking, at least 24hours in advance on 0800 678 1230. When you are travelling within Europe, you don’t need to tell us as we will monitor your account in the same way as if you were using your card in the UK.

† 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.
