Travelex Cash Passport card
Travelex Cash Passport card review
With no transaction charges and no monthly payments, the Travelex Cash Passport has its obvious charms. However, it is the less obvious features which distinguish it from the crowd and mark it down as an essential tool when travelling abroad. As an alternative to travellers cheques and carrying large amounts of foreign currency while travelling, the immediate advantages are clear. It can be used at 28 million retail outlets and 900,000 ATM’s worldwide, offering PIN protected security at all times. There is also a potentially useful global emergency assistance option which is available 24/7.
What’s not so good?
It is definitely a good idea to preload ALL the currency you need onto the card BEFORE leaving for your destination if possible. With a reloading commission charge of 2%, adding further funds once you arrive on holiday could prove costly. There is also an additional monthly inactivity fee of £2.
The Travelex Cash Passport Card will have you dreaming of the blue seas and white sands before you even arrive.
The 2% reload fee is the important one to remember. Aside from that there are no transaction or ATM charges. The maximum you can load onto the card at any one time is £5,000 and the most you can withdraw from an ATM within 24 hours is £500.
You can service your card on the Cash Passport website as well as via telephone and internet/telephone banking.
