      My son has a tesco travel money card and is in america. He has forgotten his pin number. What can he/we do to help him please?

        Hi there,

        Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

        You can request a new PIN or a reminder if you forget your current PIN online or by phone.

        Online:
        Log in to Online Banking, click on your account and then select Manage account in the top right hand corner. Select the account name, above the sort code and account number on the Account Overview, then choose Request PIN reminder from the menu.

        Enter the last four digits of your card number and choose whether you want to get a new PIN or a reminder of your existing PIN. You’ll receive your PIN number within 2 – 3 working days by post.

        By phone:
        Call them on 0345 678 5678* and they’ll send a new PIN to you. You’ll receive your PIN number within 2 -3 working days by post. It can not be sent overseas so you will have to give the pin to your son once you have it by mail.

        Please send me a message if you need anything else. :)

        Cheers,
        Joel

        Hi J.,

        Thanks for getting in touch with finder. I hope all is well with you. :)

        Yes, you may be able to swap over 50 Euros into Pounds at a Tesco Store. However, please note that for security reasons, there are some limits on how much you can order and collect.

        I hope this helps. Should you have further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach us out again.

        Have a wonderful day!

        Cheers,
        Joshua
