How does the prepaid multi-currency card work

The Prepaid multi-currency card allows you to add money to your card before travel (loading the card) and then when abroad you can use the card as you would with a normal debit or credit card to buy goods and services and also to withdraw money. The key difference is that you will obtain better exchange rates and with much lower fees in comparison to your UK debit and credit cards.

Yes, you can lock in rates in different currencies before travel and also transfer between different currencies online as you travel.

How long does the currency card application process typically take?

Most applications take a few days to process and then your card is sent to you.

Will I get charged to use an overseas ATM?

Anywhere that accepts Visa or Mastercard

Is there a minimum age limit?

Yes, to apply for the currency card you will need to be at least 18 years old.
