Cards FAQ

  • What if my Danske Mastercard is lost or stolen?

    You can block lost, stolen or damaged cards via ebanking, mobile/tablet app, by calling us or in person in a local branch.

    There is a £7.00 fee when ordering a replacement card. Please ensure you have enough funds in your account as the fee will be debited once the order is place.

    Please note that if you think you are at risk of potentially unauthorised transactions or fraud, we recommend calling us immediately on 0800 032 4368.

    1. Log on to eBanking
    2. Select ‘Cards and currency’

  • Who do I contact if I have a query about my Debit Mastercard?

    You can contact us on 0370 850 2481 or if you're outside the UK, on +44 28 9004 9201.

  • How is my Danske Mastercard protected online?

    3D Secure adds an additional layer of security when shopping online at participating retailers. We will send a unique one-time passcode to your mobile phone which you'll need to key into your web browser to complete your purchase. For more detail see our 3D Secure page.

    With maximum security and minimal fuss, 3D Secure is convenient and free!

  • What are contactless payments?

    Contactless technology uses a chip embedded in your card that allows you to make purchases of £100 and under without having to enter your PIN, by simply holding your card next to the sales terminal.

  • How can I change my contactless transaction limit?

    You may not be aware that from 15 October 2021, you can change your own contactless transaction limit!

    Your card will have a default limit of £100. You can change this through our Mobile Bank app, by calling us, or by visiting any branch.

    To do this on the Mobile Bank app, log on and navigate to the ‘Cards’ tab along the top. Select the card you’d like to change the limit for and go to ‘Spending Limits’. Click on ‘Contactless Limit (per transaction)’, choose your new limit and select ‘Done’.

  • Can I use my Debit Mastercard to make lodgements?

    Yes, in any Danske Bank branch and also in any participating Post Office in Northern Ireland.

  • How can I use my card securely outside the UK?

    When we send you a new card, it’s set to work in the UK and on the internet only. This helps protect you against fraud.

    But when you leave the UK, you don’t need to tell us in advance– just use your PIN when you arrive at your destination. This will activate your card in that country and lets us know it’s you using the card. When you get home again, use your PIN when you make your first purchase to reactivate your card for the UK.

Credit cards explained

A credit card gives you the freedom to buy things now and pay later.

A credit card is a form of borrowing. If your application is accepted, we will set you a credit limit for your card - this is the amount you can borrow and use on your credit card.

You will be sent a statement each month showing

  • how much you have spent;
  • the amount that you have to pay back; and
  • the date by which this needs to be paid

Interest is charged on any money you still owe (the outstanding balance) after this date.
