The chip and PIN card will be promoted as an alternative to carrying excess cash or traveller’s cheques and can be used a 1 million cash machines and 24 million retailers across the globe.

Following the success of a pilot run at a travel trade show last month, the GapYear card will be supported by an online advertising and marketing campaign that will use the strap line “One card no hassle”.

He adds that the company’s ultimate goal will be to sell the cards in retail outlets as well as the GapYear website. The card offers student discounts, travel planning support with and consumer purchase protection.
