We’ve made contactless payment easier and more secure by adding Apple Pay functionality to the Travel Money Card.
Pay anywhere you see the Apple Pay logo or contactless sign
Fully secure with Touch ID or Face ID
Compatible with all your Apple devices
Safely and securely pay with your phone or device
Apple Pay doesn’t share any of your card information when it makes payments, so it’s highly secure
Use biometrics to pay for anything
Your device will use your fingerprint with Touch ID or facial recognition with Face ID, both of which are highly secure
Say goodbye to the £45 limit*
Wherever you're travelling to, contactless payments are capped. Not with Apple Pay. So you can go for a bigger holiday splurge and leave your wallet at home.
Pay on public transport
Transport for London have taken Apple Pay to the next level, where you can just tap your phone on Oyster readers without needing Touch or Face IDs
The travel app allows you to hold up to 3 active cards at any given time, and all 3 can be added to Apple Pay. Your wallet can hold a maximum of 6 cards of which 1 can be set to default.
You can use it to pay in any of the currencies preloaded on your TMC.
In the same way that your TMC works, Apple Pay will use the currency of the country you are in, meaning you don’t have to select specific currencies whilst paying – it’s all done behind the scenes for you. For more information about this, please visit our TMC FAQs in your Travel App or you can read the FAQs online.
* Apple Pay contactless limits can vary country to country; while there is no contactless cap within the UK please ensure you check any limits within the country you are visiting
If you’ve lost your iPhone, use Find my iPhone to put it into ‘lost mode’. This will prevent your phone from being able to be used. You can also log into your iCloud account and remove all of your cards for peace of mind.
If you are concerned about your TMC, then please log into your Travel App where you can freeze your card quickly and easily. Follow the simple in-app steps below to do this – you can toggle between freezing and unfreezing your card at the tap of a button.
Alternatively, you can contact our card support team 24/7 on +44 344 335 0109, should you not have access to your Travel App.
Virtually all of them. iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and MacBooks are all Apple Pay enabled (though for some it may only be more recent versions). If you’re adding your TMC via the Travel app, you can only do this on iPhones and Apple Watches. But if you want to add your card in order to pay using the device’s in-built Apple Pay app, then you can see how in the next FAQ.
Each device may have a slightly different method of payment – so for MacBooks, it will only be for making purchases online and will use Touch ID. For Apple Watches, you need to double-tap the side button while holding the device near the reader.

For iPhone, open Apple Wallet and tap the plus sign (usually toward the top, right-hand corner), then follow the instructions. Once we've verified your card, you'll be able to start using Apple Pay with your TMC.
For Apple Watch, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone, then tap Wallet & Apple Pay. Then choose Add Card. Once you tap Next, we'll verify your card, you can tap Next again, and then you're off.
If you want to add Apple Pay to your Mac, you'll need a version of the computer with Touch ID. Go to System Preferences, then open Wallet & Apple Pay and tap Add Card. Just follow the instructions after that. Remember that after you've set up Apple Pay on your iPhone, you can allow the same card for that to be used for Apple Pay on your Mac. Just go to Settings on your iPhone, then Wallet & Apple Pay, and turn on Allow Payments on Mac.
And finally, for your iPad, go to Settings then Wallet & Apple Pay, then tap Add Card. Follow the instructions and once your card has been verified, tap Next and you're ready to start using your TMC via your iPad.
