USING YOUR CARD ABROAD

Tips for travelling with your Citi Debit Card

Your Citi Debit Card offers you a truly international personal banking experience by giving you access to multiple currencies and allowing you to shop at tens of millions of merchants worldwide - wherever you see your card logo displayed. Fees may apply.

How to enjoy trouble-free spending while abroad

Ensure we have your correct contact details

Please make sure we have your current mobile number and that you are contactable on your phone whilst travelling. If we identify suspicious activity on your card, you will receive a text message asking you to confirm if the transaction is genuine.

Update your card linkage

To avoid paying unnecessary fees, make sure your card is linked to the correct account before you travel. You can check and amend your card linkage instantly using Citi Online.

Daily withdrawal limits

Standard daily cash withdrawal limits apply when you are travelling overseas. You may withdraw up to £2000 per day, or equivalent if withdrawing foreign currency.

Dynamic Currency Conversion: please be aware

Some shops, restaurants and ATMs abroad may offer Dynamic Currency Conversion (or 'DCC'). This gives you the option of paying in the local currency or having the transaction converted into Pounds (GBP) on the spot. If you choose to pay in the local currency, your account will be debited using the exchange rate offered by Citi. If you choose to pay in Pounds (GBP), the retailer will set the exchange rate, which may not be as competitive as the rate offered by Citi.

Important: If your card is already linked to an account in the local currency, please do not select Dynamic Currency Conversion. That way, you will prevent your transaction from being converted twice and incurring unnecessary costs.

CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS

How contactless works

  • You can make unlimited free contactless payments of up to ₤30 in the UK wherever you see the contactless symbol. Contactless limits vary by country so to find out the contactless limit for other countries, please visit the MasterCard® website for that country.
  • Simply hold your Citi Debit Card in front of the contactless reader and your payment will be confirmed automatically. You will be offered a receipt if you wish and that's it - your transaction is complete. You will be able to see the debit on your statement and when you check your account in the Citi UK® Mobile App or Citi Online.
  • As an added security measure you may be asked to enter your PIN from time to time.
  • Contactless payments are debited from your account, and protected against fraud, in the same way as Chip and PIN transactions.

Why use contactless?

Quicker purchases

There is no need to insert your Citi Debit Card into a terminal or enter your PIN. Simply hold your card in front of the contactless reader.

Transport for London - Citibank UK International Personal Bank

Using contactless on London Transport

Contactless payments are accepted on London's tube, bus, tram, DLR and Overground lines, as well as most National Rail services within the capital.

Contactless journeys cost the same as an adult Oyster pay-as-you-go fare and you can benefit from daily and Monday to Sunday capping.

Citi Debit Card fees

At Citi, we give you the option to hold accounts in multiple currencies, all accessible with the same Citi Debit Card. When travelling, simply link your card to an account in the currency of your destination country. This will allow you to withdraw cash and make card payments without incurring transaction fees.

SECURITY FOR ONLINE PURCHASES

Simple, convenient and safe from fraud

We work hard to make your online purchases simple, convenient and safe from fraud. Your new Mastercard® Citi Debit Card uses Mastercard® SecureCode as a quick and sophisticated way of identifying yourself to Citi Security when shopping online.
