Will I still be able to use ATMs in EU countries?
Yes. Your bank cards should work as usual and you should still be able to use ATMs across Europe.
Can I still make and receive payments from EU countries?
Yes. There should be no immediate changes to how you make and receive payments. You can continue to access and use your account as usual.
Your usual direct debits and other payments should continue as normal.
I have a mortgage - will this change?
There should not be any immediate change to your mortgage or monthly outgoings. It is too early to tell what will happen to interest rates and mortgage rates going forward. If you have specific concerns about your mortgage, you should make an appointment to discuss with your mortgage advisor.
