I want to buy something on the internet. I've been asked for my security code. What is this?

Your security code is the last three digits that appear on the back of your card, in the top right hand corner of the panel your signature is in – often mentioned as CV2 or CVV.

Normally you’ll be asked for this number only when you’re paying for something over the telephone or on the web.  

Never give away your security code if you’re not sure who’s asking you for it. Or if the website you’re using is not secure. 

 

Can I use my card abroad?

Yes! You’ll find your opus card is accepted wherever you see the Mastercard sign – currently 36 million places worldwide.

Every time you use your card abroad you’ll be charged a foreign exchange fee. This is because your transaction is in a different currency to the sterling one.

We add this fee to the amount of your purchase. So the total amount you see on your statement will include the transaction amount, plus the foreign exchange fee for that transaction.

To find out more about the foreign exchange fee you’ll be charged click here or take a look at your card’s terms and conditions. 

 

Can I use my card to withdraw money from a cash machine?

Yes. But please note that when you withdraw cash using your card, other charges are added – from the day the cash withdrawal appears on your account. These charges include interest and fees.

For more details, click here or take a look at your card’s terms and conditions. 

There’s a daily limit of max £300.

Consequences of preauthorising transactions

Q: What is a preauthorised transaction? What happens if I enter into one? 

A: In certain instances (e.g. when booking a hotel or hiring a car) the transaction amount may be unknown at the point you authorise the transaction. In such cases, the retailer will seek to block funds temporarily from your account. This is what we call a preauthorised transaction – it results in the relevant amount being deducted from your available balance only (it is not however processed as a transaction). 

Please note that we will only block funds if you have authorised with the retailer the exact amount of funds that are to be blocked from your card. 

We will also release the funds once we are made aware of the actual transaction value.
