Yes, though these requests will continue to occur as Chip and PIN transactions.
The payment terminal will notify you that the payment has been declined and you should then be prompted to pay by an alternative method.
Yes, you can make contactless payments wherever you see the contactless symbol, but for your security outside the UK it may not be possible to make contactless payments in some circumstances, such as on transport systems (eg. buses and trains), at road tolls or vending machines. You can also still use your card for cash withdrawals and Chip and Pin debit card payments in a foreign currency outside the UK.
Please remember, Cumberland Visa Debit cards are unable to be used outside the UK unless you inform us of the dates and destination of your travel. You can inform us within the Other Services section in Internet Banking, selecting the Using My Card Abroad option in the mobile app, or by calling our Customer Service Team on (01228) 403 141.
No. Your card must be held very close to the front of the payment terminal at the time that payment is requested. Always remove your card from your wallet before using it at contactless payment terminals. This avoids the payment being taken from another card in your wallet if you have more than one contactless card.
