Security with Google Pay

Your real Travelex Money Card number is not saved on your device or shared with vendors when transacting with Google Pay. Only your Virtual Account Number from Google Wallet can be seen by vendors. This protects your confidential card information and doesn’t allow it to be displayed to anyone but you.

Google Pay FAQ

There are no additional charges whatsoever when using your Travelex Money Card through Google Pay. It’s simply a way of using your phone to pay in place of your physical card, so only the standard Travelex Money Card fees and charges apply. See more here for a breakdown of associated charges.

Yes, absolutely. It’s always advisable to carry your Travelex Money Card with you, even if you use your Google Wallet most of the time. Contactless or mobile payments may not be accepted everywhere, having your card with you means you’ll always be able to spend with confidence wherever Mastercard pre-paid cards are accepted.

  • Not quite yet. Using your Travelex Money Card to pay for things from your Google Wallet is now live, but you are currently unable to add currency to it through Google Pay.
  • The Travelex Money App still offers the fastest way to add funds to your Travelex Money Card, where we accept all major credit and debit cards. After registering your card and logging in, use the ‘top up’ button and follow the simple steps to add funds.
  • We are working hard on adding this enhancement as we know how helpful it will be, we expect to have this live shortly.

You can pay in any currency preloaded on your Travelex Money Card. Google Pay will automatically select the correct currency when currency type/funds are available. The process is identical to the physical card. If the correct currency funds are not available, then payment will be taken in priority order from your Travel Money Card to fund the spend. Additional charges may be incurred if this happens, see full details on fees and limits.

Just log into your Google account and use the ‘Find My Phone’ process to lock your phone and, if you choose, you can also delete your data at this point. This will stop the phone from being able to use Google Pay.
