Managing your credit card

Online statements are available for credit cards via Online Banking, making it much easier to manage your account. You will receive a PDF statement each month which cuts the clutter and statements are conveniently stored in one place.

We will send you an email each month when your statement is available to be viewed online - simply sign in to view your statement.

If you choose to receive online statements, you will no longer receive paper statements for your credit card account by post. But with account tools available within Online Banking, you are in control and can choose to start/stop receiving paper statements any time you wish to.

You can share your credit card and its credit limit with a spouse, partner, immediate family member or a friend aged 18 or over (subject to eligibility and application). You can add up to three additional cardholders, free, to all our credit cards apart from the Student Credit Card.

To add a new cardholder or to remove/amend an existing cardholder (amendments apply to name and nationality only), please contact us on 0345 944 4555 (Mon-Sun, 24 hours).
Please note that additional cardholders will not be able to view the credit card online.

As principal cardholder, you are responsible for all transactions made on any additional cards. If the additional card is withdrawn, you must retrieve and destroy the card, during which time you are still liable for all transactions made using that card.

If for any reason you cannot retrieve the card, please call the card services team on the number shown on the reverse of your card.

In order to help us to make a sound decision we require at least six months payment history on your account before you can request an increase of your credit limit. You can decrease your credit limit at any time after your card has been activated.
If you wish to apply to change your credit limit, please call 0345 944 4555 (Mon-Sun, 24 hours).

From time to time you may be offered a credit limit increase. If this happens, you will be advised in writing and have 30 days notice before any increase will take effect. However, should you not wish to benefit from the increase, or want to decrease your credit limit, simply call 0345 944 4555 (Mon-Sun, 24 hours).

To update your address call our customer services department on 0345 944 4555 (Mon-Sun, 24 hours). You will need to have your credit card to hand when you call to change your address over the telephone.

You can also change your address by completing the Change of address form and posting it back to us.
