In light of the current situation in Greece, The UK Cards Association is providing, and will update as necessary, the following advice to cardholders.

The card payments industry has a track record of responding to changing world events. Debit and credit cards often offer an extra degree of certainty for travellers. However, as advised by the Foreign Office, make sure you have enough Euros in cash to cover emergencies, unforeseen circumstances and any unexpected delays.

Any customer who is experiencing difficulties in payment should speak to their bank or card company to see what help may be available.
