cheque card

A plastic card issued by a retail bank to its customers to guarantee cheques drawn on the customer's current account up to a specified limit. The card carries the account number, the name of the customer, and has to be signed by the customer. The card number must be written on the reverse of the cheque that it is guaranteeing. Many cheque cards have now been replaced by multifunctional cards, which also function as cash cards and debit cards
