I was about to post this, but @Lonford got there first!
Banks which were Visa, but are in the process of switching to Mastercard, include:
- First Direct
- NatWest, RBS, Ulster Bank (and the rest of the group)
TSB was also reportedly going to switch but cancelled their plans after their IT fiasco. So maybe don’t pick them in case they revisit their plans (although that’s not seeming likely).
HSBC might also switch, medium term, as First Direct has switched already so that may have been a kind of test run. They also generally tend to issue Mastercard Debit in other areas of the world.
Banks which are currently Visa Debit with no plans to change include:
- Lloyds (whole group, including Halifax & Bank of Scotland)
- Co-operative Bank & Smile
Banks which issue Visa Credit cards include:
- Co-operative & Smile
