About our Prepaid MasterCard®
Our Bank Account comes with a MasterCard® Prepaid Card which can be used at over 30 million outlets worldwide, for online and telephone purchases and to make cash withdrawals at ATM’s showing the MasterCard® Acceptance Mark excluding Link ATM's. A 50p ATM withdrawal fee applies on cash withdrawals
As this is a Prepaid Card, you must ‘load’ money onto your card before you spend – like a ‘Pay as You Go' mobile phone ‘top up’. This way, the money you spend on your Prepaid Card is separated from the money in your Current Account.
