Is there a payment limit?

In Luxembourg, you can use your contactless debit card irrespective of the amount.

For purchases:

  • of less than 25 EUR, no PIN code is required.
  • of more than 25 EUR, you are asked for your usual PIN code.

These limits vary by country. Ask your retailer.

As part of security checks, you may occasionally be asked to enter your PIN code. For your first payment with your card, you will be required to insert it into the terminal to activate the contactless feature.
