Travelex Money Card

Using your debit or credit card abroad can usually result in some pretty hefty fees that need paying! Avoid this eventuality by ordering one of the 2 Travelex cards;

  • Multi-currency cash passport – choose up to 10 currencies to be loaded to the card and lock in the exchange rate there and then
  • Globe cash passport – simply load up with sterling and it will convert to the local currency upon transaction

Opting for one of the above cards is great for those that prefer to carry cards over cash, but don’t want to link their personal cards to overseas transactions and incur the fees.
