International acceptance

If you are traveling abroad, you can use your contactless card or device wherever the retailer is displaying the Contactless Symbol below.

The contactless transaction limit of £30 may vary in different countries. For example, the equivalent limit is €25 (£18) in France, $100(£48) in Canada or $100 (£45) in Australia.

You may also be charged for making a foreign payment using your card, either for a contactless payment or for a chip & PIN payment. This could represent a large proportion of the cost for a low value payment.
If you are visiting the UK as a tourist, the guidance on this site applies to you as well.
