Our hub has been designed especially for you, with a wide variety of hints and tips to help you keep your home and contents safe.
Are you a sun worshipper or do you prefer a bit of skiing? Whatever type of holiday you’re planning, here are some tips to consider before you jet off:
Getting to that dream destination could cost less than you think. Before you book anything, shop around on comparison sites. There are many websites that source cheap flights and accommodation options, rather than booking a set package through a travel agent. Have a look at the resorts, hotels, villas, apartments or campsites in your chosen area – there could be a cheaper option to suits your needs.
Some flights have a baggage allowance, some will charge you extra. How much do you need to take? And what will the weather be like at your destination? Do some research before you go to avoid any unnecessary baggage charges.
How long is your break? What’s the exchange rate like? How expensive is the place you’re going to? Cash withdrawals and some credit or debit card transactions can cost you money when made abroad. So think about how much you’ll need, remembering to factor in the rate of exchange. And always get your spending money sorted out before you leave the country.
It’s also worth thinking about how to carry your cash. Cash and travellers’ cheques are a reliable option, but a prepaid currency card could be a more secure and simpler way to take your currency with you. It’s a safe, convenient and easy way to take larger amounts of money on holiday with you.
You don’t want your holiday spoiled by unexpected medical bills or lost cash or travel documents. So make sure you have the insurance cover you need. Depending on your policy, travel insurance can cover travel in the UK, Europe and worldwide. It could also cover emergency medical expenses in the UK and abroad and loss of travel and accommodation if your trip is cancelled. It could also protect baggage and belongings, passports and travel documents and cash/travellers’ cheques.
You don't need to tell us when you are travelling abroad, we will monitor your account in the same way as if you were using your card in the UK.

We need to ensure it’s really you making the payment before the money leaves your account. How you do this depends on whether you’re using:
No, it’s not for every payment. Once saved the person or company you are paying will become ‘Trusted’. That means you may not need to do the identity check again, unless you change details like the sort code, account number, name or reference.
To make payments of more than £500, or totaling more than £1000 per day, you will now need to use the Mobile Banking App to verify your payments.. Business customers using a One-Time Passcode will no longer be able to make payments greater than £500 and will need to use the mobile app to verify payments.Continue to Internet Banking
