Card and smartphone payments are currently the safest way to pay for goods and services, as contactless payments mean that no physical contact is required with the card terminal, and no handling of cash or cheques is necessary. For this reason, we ask that you pay contactlessly if possible.

This new £100 limit for cards should mean that all of your payments to us can now be made contactlessly in a single transaction (unless your card issuer implements a security check, in which case you will be asked to enter your PIN).
