Fee-free card payments abroad this summer

This summer, to help you get a well-deserved break, we won’t charge you any foreign transaction fees (also known as non-sterling transaction fees) when you spend abroad with a RBS debit or credit card that’s included in our offer.

Help if your travel plans have changed

We understand your travel plans may have changed. Find out how we can help with travel money refunds, debit and credit card payments below.

If your holiday or flight has been cancelled, please get in touch with your travel provider in the first instance as we can only dispute the payment after the travel date has passed and the travel provider is unable to assist you.
