Your HSBC debit card
When you open an account with us, your HSBC debit card gives you easy access to your money to make secure transactions all over the world.
With all our debit cards you get:
Chip and PIN protection
Your HSBC debit card is embedded with a microchip. When used with your 6-digit PIN, it provides even more protection against fraud than magnetic stripe cards.
HSBC debit cards are accepted globally at over 1 million ATMs and over 28 million retail outlets.
SMS alert service
You will be automatically enrolled into the free SMS alert service and will instantly receive a message on your local mobile phone informing you of your card transactions in real time.
Access to multiple HSBC accounts
You can access up to three HSBC accounts through the ATMs provided that the card is linked to those accounts.
HSBC ATM services in Egypt and abroad
Cash withdrawal, account balance inquiry and mini-statement request is all available using your debit card at HSBC ATMs.

Chip & PIN
This contactless payment method saves you time by allowing you to make small purchases at selected outlets by simply waving your card in front of a card reader. For extra security, you may occasionally need to enter your PIN or sign for the transaction.
Using your HSBC card abroad
Carrying your HSBC card is much safer than carrying cash and your pockets won't be weighed down with foreign currency. Here are some simple tips for carrying and using your debit or credit card overseas.
What to do before you leave
- Check the expiry date on your HSBC card.
- Make sure you have enough funds in your account or available credit limit.
- Update your latest contact details with us, so that we can get in touch with you easily.
- Contact us with your travel dates and destinations, so we can update our system.
- Write down HSBC contact numbers in case you need to get in touch while you're away.
Things to know while you're away
While using an ATM machine or when paying with your HSBC card abroad, be discreet while entering your PIN and aware of the people around you. Keep all receipts to check against your statements, and contact us immediately if you notice any fraudulent activity on your card(s).
Try not to keep all your cards in the same place – that way, should your wallet be lost or stolen, you won't lose everything. If your card is lost or stolen abroad, please call us immediately and report it to the local authorities.
