Banking service in new format
Due to tighter restrictions on public gatherings and to slow the spread of Covid-19, customers will only be able to receive personal service in branches if the matter is very urgent and cannot be resolved using other channels, i.e. digital self-service or a call to the Customer Service Centre. Appointments for service must be pre-arranged. These changes enter into effect on Tuesday, 24 March 2020, and will remain in place until the restrictions on gatherings are lifted.
These changes also apply to Landsbankinn’s Corporate Banking Service Centre and services out of Vehicle & Equipment Financing in Borgartún 33, Reykjavík.
Facilities vary greatly from branch to branch and by limiting visits to branches, the Bank can better comply with the restrictions on gatherings set in place to ensure the safety of both customers and employees. These changes will also free more employees to answer queries that are called in, emailed or communicated via online messenger.
Request phone call
We encourage customers to only request physical service at a branch if the matter is urgent and cannot be resolved through other channels, such as any of the Bank's many digital service solutions, Landsbankinn’s app, online banking or by calling the Customer Service Centre, by email or online chat on landsbankinn.is.
If the matter cannot be resolved through any of these channels, customers can request a phone consultation with an expert. Such consultations can be booked through the Bank’s website, by contacting the Customer Service Centre or through online chat. Service will only be provided physically at a branch by previous appointment.
