What's Good ? Club 18-30 prepaid card Review
If image is your thing, then this is the card for you!
But the new Club 18-30 prepaid card is not just a pretty face – as well as some funky card design options, it’s also pretty good value for money too, with no monthly fee and no mark up on foreign transactions, making it an excellent choice for use abroad. The Club 18-30 card has Chip & PIN, and runs on the Maestro network, which means you can use it at around 7 million locations worldwide. The card can be topped up online with a credit or debit card, or using cash at one of 15,000 PayPoint locations around the UK.
What's not so good?
Reloads will cost you up to 3% each time regardless of the method you choose, so frequent tops ups could work out expensive.
