We will not charge you for withdrawing cash from any ATM in the UK. However, some ATM providers may charge for using their machines to withdraw cash. There is a charge for withdrawing cash from abroad, please see our tariff for details.
If your available balance is less than the monthly fee it will still be taken, this may result in an unarranged overdraft. If this happens we will charge you the same interest rate that we charge for an arranged overdraft, you won't be charged any additional fees. If you are experiencing financial difficulty please contact us or seek advice from an independent support service such as the citizens advice bureau or the money advice service

No, for security reasons you should cut your card in half, through the chip and magnetic stripe and put it in the bin. It will still biodegrade.
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.
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.

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.
We look at a combination of factors, such as your income and expenditure, when assessing overdraft requests. It is not based on credit score alone.
