Can I use my contactless card abroad?

Yes, you can use your contactless card abroad. Contactless transactions will be accepted wherever the contactless symbol is displayed:

There is a contactless transaction limit of £30 and this varies by country and by merchant (it’s the daily equivalent for other currencies or the specific country limit).

You can do a maximum of 5 consecutive Contactless transactions, when you reach this limit you will need to use chip and pin to reset the counter. This limit is set forth by The Second Payment Services Directive (PSD2). You can find more information by visiting https://www.fca.org.uk/news/press-releases/fca-finalises-revised-psd2-requirements
