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.
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.
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.
Unfortunately not. The account is online only (via mobile app and internet banking) with text alerts to help customers manage their money. However, our Contact Team is available to offer support should you have any issues using your account contact us.
No, at the moment it is not possible to share your Triodos transaction data.
You can withdraw up to £300 per day, per account holder, from ATMs accepting MasterCard and LINK globally (subject to available funds in your account) for detail regarding charges for using your card abroad please see out tariff of charges.
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
To change our setting for SMS/text messages please log into your internet banking, click on account profile on the left hand side menu and then click on mailing settings. You can amend your text notification settings and then save the changes.
