Disagree. Cash is still legal tender. Tap and Go is useful for small payments but £45 is enough in my opinion. Losing your card could prove deadly at £100 a tap.

The elderly are just as important as the rest of the community and a lot of them rely on cash still.

If my limit is raised to £100 I will contact bank and take it back down to £45. If I cannot do it I will tell them I want a new card without that facility and simply enter my pin for each transaction. 

I think you are just trying to yank Bert's chain!

Cash talks anywhere. It is still preferred in much of the world.

well any workies that we have...next week painters, following week new carpet and carpet layer will all be paid in cash. I did read an article about this recently by an established journalist who had gone for a night out with his mates and struggled to believe he had spent so much on bevvy using his contactless card....he just didn't keep a tally, whereas if you go out with a ton in your pocket you know how much you have spent and how much you have left at any given time.

To be honest I very rarely use cash anymore in fact I can’t remember the last time I did. I always carry some but just find using my cards so much easier

Nope, well yeah a little, but I just found the graph of cash being in free fall as information Harold needed to know. Harold you need to get ready for a cashless society mate 👍

haha, I doubt they will get rid of cash just yet. You have the option of using a card, just as they have the option of only accepting card payments.

I believe that there may be a law that cash is legal tender and they have to accept it if the purchaser insists. 

Cashless society will never happen.

Martin Lewis has issued a warning to shoppers who rely on paying by cash.

According to the Money Saving Expert, shops are legally allowed to refuse cash payment for items as long as they are not discriminating against the customer.

The issue was mentioned on the ITV's 'The Martin Lewis Money Show', where the discussion of legal tender was brought up.

Lewis responded to this saying: "No, they are not breaking any rules."

"You are allowed to take card only as long as it's not discriminatory for race or disability or something."
