Set up a Direct Debit and forget about missing payments

Life’s busy, but a Direct Debit for your Lloyds Bank credit card means you’ll have one less thing to sort out each month. You’re still in control though, because you choose whether to pay:

  • Your entire bill each month.
  • A set amount each month.
  • Or just the minimum payment each month. If you only pay the minimum each month, your debt could take a long time to clear.
  • Whichever option you choose, you’ll have the reassurance of knowing your payment will automatically be made on time so you won’t be charged any late payment fees.

 

Tips to avoid additional fees and charges:

Currently a fee of £12 will be incurred for any missed payments

  • Set up a Direct Debit. You can do this online or by calling us on 0845 606 2172.
  • Pay your bill through Internet Banking

 

Consumer Credit Act protection.

Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (the Act) can offer Lloyds Bank credit card customers useful protection for purchases of over £100 and up to £30,000. Under the Act, a credit card issuer and the retailer have joint responsibility for purchases made if there has been a breach of contract or misrepresentation. For example, if the item is faulty or the company stops trading. If the customer has only paid the deposit on their credit card they may still be able to claim the total value of the purchase under Section 75.
