Money Card has been great in Japan
Money Card has been great in Japan. It's convenience as 7/11 ATMs are everywhere and easy to use. Just one thing not quite sure why, my balance was keep going up and down for +/-30 to 40 Yen, even though Travelex claims the exchange rate is fixed.Ivan Luong

Fast, convenient service. Exchange rate may not be the best, but very low fees, and quite a choice of locations to nominate to pick up the foreign currency ordered online. Online ordering was straight forward, and there is a wide choice of methods to pay. All in all, a great transaction experience.Ross Musumeci
