You can use your Tesco Bank Credit Card anywhere that displays the Mastercard or VISA symbol that is shown on your card. You can also use your card to make purchases securely over the internet. If your card is contactless, you can use it for transactions for up to £45 when you see the contactless logo. A new contactless limit of £45 (increased from £30) became available in UK retailers from 1 April 2020. Tesco Bank customers with contactless cards can now use them for payments up to £45 anywhere the limit has been increased. As the change has been introduced quickly, it may take some time before it can be applied everywhere so check the limit with the retailer. Please remember that, if using contactless for the first time, you'll need to have already completed a Chip & PIN transaction on your credit card.
If you are going abroad on holiday, your Tesco Bank Credit Card is accepted in over 28 million places worldwide.
