You can use Contactless for purchases under £45. 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.
Sometimes, as a security measure, we may ask for your PIN when performing a contactless transaction.
You're protected if your card is lost, stolen or charged incorrectly - you won't have to pay for any fraudulent use. Just make sure you contact us right away.
