Credit Limits

A Q Mastercard provides you with a specified amount of credit that you can access using your Account and/or your card. You must ensure that your total unpaid balance does not exceed your credit limit.


If you have failed to keep up with your minimum payments on your account you will be in default which can result in the following:

  • Cancellation or restriction of further use of your Account and/or card.
  • Requirement of immediate repayment of any unpaid balance on your Account. This includes interest accrued but not yet charged and all amounts required to repay any Fixed Instalment.
  • Charging you default fees and recovery of reasonable enforcement expenses and collection costs.

Cancelling your card

You can cancel your Q Mastercard at any time as per the cardholder terms and conditions by calling us on 0800 119 100. You will still be responsible for all transactions made up until that time. The outstanding balance, including interest accrued but not yet charged, and all amounts required to repay any Fixed Instalments, will immediately become due and payable.

The Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act 2003 provides you with certain cancellation rights, however time limits do apply.
