Contactless Credit Cards

It's always good to know you have something to fall back on. BNF Bank offers a range of credit cards designed to meet your needs and to support the lifestyle you choose.  Access a world of opportunities, shop online from wherever you are and withdraw money anywhere in the world. 

All our cards have the 'contactless' symbol which may be used to effect contactless payments at point of sale terminals which display the symbol. More information about Contactless may be accessed from www.bnf.bank/contactless_payments.

Use your BNF Credit Cards to:

  • withdraw cash from a VISA ATM anywhere in the world;

Security features

BNF credit cards are equipped with EMV Chip technology which enhances security by requiring the use of a PIN to authorise certain purchases.  For security reasons, you will be required to insert your Credit Card for an EMV Chip transaction and key in your PIN: 

  • on your very first transaction, to ensure that the card is in your rightful possession.  Contactless will be activated right after your first transaction;
  • on the 6th consecutive contactless transaction, to minimise risk on repeated transactions such as when cards are lost or stolen; 
  • if the transaction is over €50; and 
  • if the cumulative daily maximum limit of €250 is exceeded.

3D Secure

Our Classic, Gold and PAVI PAMA Credit Cards are 3D Secure. This technology offers an additional layer of security when shopping online, and further protects against unauthorised and fraudulent card transactions by requiring authentication whenever an eligible purchase is made. Terms and conditions are available on the Bank's website.
