How to change your credit card limit
You can apply to change the limit on your credit card on the Internet Bank, Banking app or over the phone.
We won’t increase your credit limit unless you ask us to. A higher credit limit could give you more flexibility. However, it may increase the risk of you taking on too much debt. This could cost you more overall, and take longer to pay off your borrowing. Consider carefully if you need a higher limit.
If you’re worried about debts, or money in general, get in touch. Find help and advice on our Money worries page.
Changes you can make
- apply to increase the limit on your credit card
- apply to reduce the limit on your credit card.
If accepted, you'll get your new credit limit immediately. But once your credit limit has changed, you'll have to wait 6 months before you can apply to increase it. You can reduce your credit limit at any time.
The limit you can get will depend on your personal circumstances, like your income, outgoings and credit file.
Apply to change your limit
On the Internet Bank or Banking app
Log into the Internet Bank (opens in a new window), or open the Banking app, then:
- Choose your credit card account
- Choose Change credit limit in the View accounts menu in the Internet Bank, or the options menu in the Banking app
- Choose either Increase credit limit or Reduce credit limit
To increase your limit, you'll need to fill out details on:

You'll tell us the new credit limit you want. We'll then let you know if we can accept your request.
