Easy-to-use machines

Santander has over 2,400 cash machines for you to use in the UK. Using our touchscreen machines you can of course take out cash whenever you want. But you can also manage your money in a number of different ways:

  • Favourites - save time by saving your most used transactions. As soon as you enter your PIN your favourite transactions will show.
  • Cash deposit - up to 50 notes at a time.
  • Cheque deposit - up to 30 cheques at a time. The time they take to process will be the same as if they were paid in over the counter.
  • Balance on screen - this allows you to see and print a quick balance.
  • Mini statements - you can either view on screen or print your latest transactions.
  • Receipt preference - you can choose to print or email receipts for withdrawals, deposits, transfers and bill payments.
  • Transfer between accounts - transfer money in real time between your own Santander UK accounts.
  • Change PIN.

The services above are available to Santander UK customers. Non-Santander UK customers can withdraw cash, request on-screen balances and print receipts.

Remember - stay aware, stay safe. Always be aware of your surroundings and shield your PIN when you use any cash machine.

The table below outlines the services available at the Post Office and how to use them.

ServiceWhat you will needOther important information
Cash withdrawalsYour debit or cash card and your PIN
  • Standard cash machine withdrawal limits apply - see your General Terms and Conditions (381 KB) for the limits. To withdraw more than the cash machine limit, please call Santander first on 0330 123 0061
  • Some Post Offices won't allow you to withdraw more than £1,000.
Cash depositsYour debit or cash card
  • Some debit or cash cards may need to be re-issued for this service to work - please see the 'Cash deposits service' section below.
  • There is a maximum limit of £20,000.
  • Some Post Office branches only allow cash deposits up to a limit of £1,000 please check at your local Post Office branch if you want to deposit more.
Balance enquiryYour debit or cash card and your PIN
  • You will receive a receipt which confirms your current balance and available balance.
Cheque depositsA personalised paying in slip and a deposit envelope along with the cheque(s) you want to deposit
  • This isn't a tracked service so the Post Office will provide a separate receipt for each cheque deposit envelope you deposit. They'll then send the cheques on for processing.
  • Funds will normally be available to use 6 days after the deposit was made, as it takes longer for us to process cheques through the Post Office.
  • To use this service, you'll need to pre-order paying in slips and deposit envelopes by calling 0330 123 0061

If you don't have a PIN and wish to use these services, please call us on 0330 123 0061 or visit your local Santander branch.

Cash deposits service

If you'd like to make cash deposits at Post Office branches with your debit or cash card, you may need to order a new card.

If the long number on the front of your current card starts with:

  • 6768 83 or 4757 14 and was issued before July 2015 or
  • 4547 42 and was issued before June 2015 and is not contactless

Please call us on 0330 123 0061 or visit your local Santander branch so we can reissue your card.

If your card starts with any other number or has a contactless symbol you can use the service today with your existing card.

Check your local Post Office

Opening hours, services and transaction limits vary by Post Office. Please check at your local Post Office branch. The Post Office website provides details of how to find your local branch and their opening hours.
