How do I activate my Current Account debit card?

You’ll need your access code to activate your debit card. This can be found in the Triodos Mobile Banking App or Internet Banking.

If you have the Mobile App, start by logging in and then go to 'More, then 'Cards' and select the debit card you wish to activate, then select ‘Activate your card’ and follow the on-screen instructions.

Don't have the Mobile App? Download via the App Store  or Google Play to manage your money on the go, easily and securely. To download the app, you'll need a compatible smartphone or tablet - running Android 6.0 or higher, or Apple iOS 14 or higher.

Alternatively, you can log in to Internet Banking, go to ‘Self service’ and ‘Cards’ which will take you to old Internet Banking to view your access code.

Once you have your access code, send a text message to 57887 with the following message: 'TRIODOS PINACT', followed by your access code, followed by the last four digits of your card number - you need a space between sets of numbers. For example: TRIODOS PINACT 123456 1234.

You'll be sent your card PIN via text message within a couple of minutes - don't forget to delete that text message after memorising your PIN.

You're ready to use your card - remember to sign the back.

Please note that some mobile providers do not process text messages to 5-digit numbers. If you text and do not receive a response from us within 10 minutes, please call us on 0330 355 0355 and press the option to activate your card. You will need your debit card and access code to hand and will receive the PIN at the end of the call.
