The Travelex Money Card is a safe and convenient way to take money abroad. You simply load a card with the currency of your choice before you set off and then hand it over when you are out shopping or settling the bill in a restaurant. The Travelex Money Card is available in 10 different currencies and carries the Mastercard logo, which is accepted in millions of outlets across the globe.
A Cash Money Card works like a debit card, so each customer is given a PIN to enter at the pay point. You can also use the cards when shopping online or to withdraw money from an ATM. If you lose your Money Card, you can organise a free replacement through Travelex’s 24/7 emergency assistance service.
It’s easy to manage your budget with a Travelex Money Card because you can load the card with the appropriate amount of cash. A free text service will also alert you when your balance is low so you can either stop spending or top up the card by phone or online. If you bought your Money Card at a bank or travel agent, you might also be able to reload the card at a participating UK branch.
You don’t normally have to pay for a Money Card and there aren’t usually any fees to load up the card with currency. Travelex also does not levy any fees for cash withdrawals from an ATM, but you might be stung by a charge from the operator of the cash machine itself.
You should also be aware that Money Card charges a monthly inactivity fee if you don’t use the card for 12 months.
Choice of currency
The Travelex Money Card is a multi-currency Money Card that you can load the card with up to 10 currencies. The card is ‘smart’ in that it automatically selects the currency to match the country.
Safe and convenient
The Travelex Money Card is a convenient and safe way to take money overseas. Plus, it allows you to control your budget while you are travelling, so you don’t get any nasty bill shocks when you get back to the UK. What’s more, they can offer better value than credit or debit cards, so make a good choice for both holiday makers and business travellers.
