5 tips for managing your credit card
Paying for goods or services with a card is pretty familiar to most people. Using a credit card gives you the option to spread the cost of large or unexpected purchases, or just to manage your everyday spending.
Just remember, you may need your credit card PIN to complete a transaction.
Contactless is an easy and secure way to make card payments of up to £45, usually without entering your PIN. This is available at a growing number of retailers and service providers around the world.

Your credit card can be a great addition to your wallet when you travel, but it’s important to understand what additional fees may apply when you use your card outside the UK.
You can use your credit card to take cash out at an ATM, over the counter and at a bureau de change. Just be aware that additional fees may apply to these transactions.
