We want to help make things easy and convenient for you when travelling abroad. Take your HSBC cards with you and use your card in the same way you do at home, and with the same security you'd expect from your bank too.
Whether you're shopping or at a restaurant, enjoy the convenience of using your cards anywhere that displays the logo on your card.
You can use your cards at cash machines abroad whenever you need extra local currency.
Enjoy the security of using a card from your bank who you know and trust. Your cards will be protected in the same way as they would be in the UK.
When using your cards abroad you can easily keep track of your spending in the same way you do at home by logging into online or mobile banking.

We automatically monitor accounts for unusual transactions. By letting us know you're travelling abroad, we can update our records and it will reduce the chance of us declining a transaction whilst you're overseas.
