Your Halifax Visa debit card makes paying easy, and can be safer than cash. You can use your card at most places, so no more special trips to the cash machine. Why not reach for your card, instead of using cash?

The everyday way to pay

The number of payments with a debit card has now overtaken cash – because it’s so quick and simple. With no minimum limit, you can use it for the smallest items, so no more hunting around for the right change.

Did you know?

Last year in the UK we used our debit cards more than ever – for over 15 billion payments in fact.

Helping to protect your money

If your cash ever goes missing, it stays missing. But if your card falls into the wrong hands, we’re ready to keep your money safe. In addition to your card’s built-in Visa security technology, we use the latest systems to detect suspicious activity on your card to help keep you protected from fraud.

Did you know?

Occasionally we’ll ask you to enter your PIN when you pay with contactless, this is so we can check it’s you – an extra layer of security.

Go contactless and keep moving

Contactless is the easy way to pay up to £30 and saves you a few seconds every time. Whatever shape or size the contactless payment reader – from tablets to square ones – it’s as safe as Chip and PIN, and now even more popular. Look for the contactless symbol when you’re out and about.

Did you know?

Your contactless card is now accepted on most bus routes across the UK, so you won’t need to worry about having change.

Keep track of your spending and check your balance through Online Banking, and on our Mobile Banking app when you’re on the move. You can access your account securely on your phone or computer, day or night.
