Cash is as safe to use as cards

Cash is as safe to use as cards

Research shows that cash transactions pose no more risk than other daily activities, including card payments, especially when partnered with the hygiene protocols put forward by WHO.

The Bank of England have stated: “Like any other surface that large numbers of people come into contact with, notes can carry bacteria or viruses. However, the risk posed by handling a polymer note is no greater than touching any other common surfaces such as handrails, doorknobs or credit cards.

Cash Choice

Cash Choice

G4S recognise more than ever the vital role we play to ensure the movement of cash for the UK and how important access to cash is for so many different groups during the pandemic.

Cash as a vital payment choice and we support cash availability to all communities. To reduce access to cash has a far-reaching impact and can place more people in financial isolation unable to purchase vital necessities
