How do I activate my current account debit card?

If you have been upgraded to new Internet Banking there is a quick link in ‘Self service’ and ‘Card management’ which will take you to old Internet Banking to view your access code.

If you are in the old Internet Banking, got to ‘Account Management’ and then ‘Cards’ and you'll be provided with a six digit 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 please call us as your request will not have been confirmed and processed.
