Travel Money Cards
Pros of Travelling with a Travel Card
Load Multiple Currencies: Travelling to places like Europe, Asia, or South America? Unlike debit or credit cards, some travel cards allow you to load multiple currencies onto the one card. The Travelex Money Card lets you load up to 10 different currencies, making travelling to different destinations in the one trip easier.
Locked-in Exchange Rate: Travel cards allow you to lock in one exchange rate at the time of purchase. This means you know exactly how much you’ve paid in terms of exchange, and won’t need to stress about currency fluctuations affecting your holiday budget on your trip.*
Cons of Travelling with a Travel Card
Not all Destinations and Experiences Accept Card: Depending on where you travel to, not all destinations or vendors will accept a travel card as a form of payment. Because of this, it may be a good idea to take some cash with you on holiday to avoid tricky situations where your card may not be accepted.
Fees: There may be fees associated with certain travel cards1. These can range from fees to load and reload your card, purchase fees, issue fees, and fees when you decide to cash out any remaining balances. Make sure you compare cards online, and are fully aware of any fees which may apply.
