Change the limit on your debit card

There are times when you might want to PIN a higher amount. For example, to pay for your new car or the sofa you ordered. Or you might want to lower the limit on your child's debit card so he or she doesn't withdraw too much money. You can see and easily change your current limit in Internet Banking and the Mobile Banking app. You don't have to go to a branch anymore. The change can also take immediate effect.

Cash machine limit

This is the maximum amount that you can withdraw per day at a cash machine. The default limit is € 500 per day for ABN AMRO cash machines and € 250 for cash machines from other banks in the Netherlands. If you change the limit on your debit card the change will only apply to cash machines in the Netherlands.

Payment terminal limit

This is the maximum amount that you can pay with your debit card, for example, in stores or for the new kitchen you ordered. The default limit is € 2,500 a day. If you would like to PIN more, you can increase the limit up to € 50,000 per day.

Are you increasing your card limits?

Make sure you decrease your card limits again as soon as you no longer need them to be that high. This reduces your risk in the event of theft or loss of your debit card.
