Your rights when making payments in Europe

EU rules mean your electronic payments are becoming cheaper, easier and safer.

Here’s how:

  • You can make payments throughout Europe (the EU, Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein) as easily and safely as in your home country.
  • You can no longer be charged extra costs by a merchant when you pay using a card issued in the EU.
  • The rules cover all kinds of electronic payments (e.g. credit transfers, direct debits, card payments…).
  • Anybody legally residing in Europe has the right to a bank account for making electronic payments (“payment account”).
