It’s best to cut your card into pieces, making sure to cut through the chip and magnetic strip and put the card in with your normal waste, rather than your recycling. It will still biodegrade more quickly than any other debit card plastic. If possible, don’t put all the pieces of the card in the same bin or with any related documentation such as receipts or statements.
Cash cannot be paid in to the Triodos Personal Current Account at the moment. However we are in discussion with a number of providers to investigate if we can offer this service in the future as we understand from customer feedback that this is a service that some customers would like us to offer.
Yes - you can wherever you see the Mastercard logo. There are charges for using your card abroad - please see our tariff for detail.
Triodos will be offering Open Banking services from 14 September 2019. Triodos will only facilitate the sharing of your account information with other parties when you have provided your explicit consent for us to do so.
Screen scraping happens when you allow a third party to log into your computer while you are using it, so they see what you are doing and can copy the data on the screens you are viewing. This is a way for third parties to be able to get access to your payment data or account overview.
Triodos Bank is not in favour of this practice, as it potentially compromises the integrity of your own computer and your passwords.
The debit card is made from a 'natural plastic' of compacted renewable resources such as plant leaves and corn. The card itself is now believed to have the strongest environmental credentials of any debit card in the UK market. Only the chip and strip are not recyclable.
Please call us at the earliest opportunity on 0330 355 0355. Our card services department can be accessed by calling that number 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When you open an account with us, we need to obtain sufficient proof of your identity and address. We do this to satisfy our legal obligations and protect you, the public and Triodos Bank against fraud and misuse of the banking system. To help us verify your identity, we may use the details you provide to do electronic searches about you at credit reference agencies. They will supply us information from databases, including information from the Electoral Register and fraud prevention agencies.
Replacement cards usually arrive within five working days, while new cards should be received within five days of the account being opened. If you have any questions or think your card has been lost or stolen you can contact our 24/7 card services department on 0330 355 0355.
The minimum age for applicants is 18 and you must be UK resident.
We do not offer a facility for emergency cash if you have lost your debit card or it has been stolen. However, you can still access your mobile app or internet banking to make payments from your account.
We realise that some customers won't want to bank online and that will mean that this account isn't for them. As a small bank we have had to make some difficult choices about the proposition and in an environment that is becoming increasingly digital we decided an online account was the right option. We considered telephone and postal banking but the costs to offer this service would have been overly prohibitive to launching the product.
Our card department provides 24 hour transaction monitoring on the Triodos Debit Card and will block a transaction or a card if required. In this event they will send a text message asking you to call them. The will ask standard identity questions around your personal details and investigate the transaction with you. They will not ask for the card PIN, three-digit CVV code on the back of the card or any information regarding your digipass.
No, at the moment it is not possible to share your Triodos transaction data.
If your available balance is less than the monthly fee it will still be taken, this may result in an unarranged overdraft.
