What are the limits for contactless payments?

Contactless payment limits vary by country, however, these have been set at GBP30 or equivalent by WeSwap.

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

Remember that, once your card's activated, you'll need to use it first with Chip and PIN to activate contactless payments.
