First time to use prepaid card for travel
First time to use prepaid card for overseas travel, it was seamless and worked very well. Ordering online was also convenient (although the server/website was down for a day or so just when I tried ordering so had to keep going back and trying again). I would use the card again, however I find the phone application a little odd in its user interface and usability.John Pollard

The whole process was very easy - my only minor “criticism” is that, once I placed my order, I received a confirmation stating my order would be ready ON or AFTER my requested date (which was my departure date from the airport where I was picking it up) It certainly would have been no use to me AFTER so I was slightly concerned but forty I received notification that it was ready. Also when we got to the airport there are now 3 Travelex outlets so I wasn’t 100% sure which one to go to - one was unmanned and there was a large queue at one so I went to the other (which is where I have collected on previous occasions) and it happened to be the right one.Melanie
