Credit Cards

The transfer of Credit Cards to Bank of Ireland is expected in Q1 2023. As we approach the transfer date there are a number of services which KBC will not be able to implement or will implement differently to ensure the smooth transfer of your account.

In advance of the transfer, there may be actions that you ask us to complete on your account. In some cases we will be required to take your instruction to make the change and provide this to Bank of Ireland who will complete the action when your account transfers in Q1 2023. At that time there may be a short delay in actioning some of your requests. You will find more information in the table below.

Where there are additional changes to services we will update this page, please check it regularly.

There are some services that will no longer be available and we have outlined these services below.
