Very easy to use and efficient. Better rates than elsewhereJAMES
Pretty easy, time will tell if it is THE card they say it is....
Though the frequently asked questions didn't really answer my question, and the call centre went through to an English guy, who didn't really get what i was asking either ( the lag was awful), it was easy to navigate and buy the card online, though the card fee is outrageous. Give yourself enough time to bpay, u will get a free lunch out of it. The exchange rate was the best amongst all the prepaid cards also.Steve NSW

Very impressed with this Travel Card.
Thought this would be hard to do, but it was very easy to use. Instructions said it could take 2 days to receive transfer, but it took 4 hours. I am very impressed with this travel card and the staff at the Watergardens store. Thank you for making this an easy to use system. Also thank you for your exchange rates, from the companies I have researched yours is the best rates.DONNA
