Travelex Pre-paid Travel Card ... quite simply a card which you pre-load with your spending money before travel and which you then use exactly as you would use a bank card at home. You can use a Pre-paid Travel Card to withdraw cash from ATMs or to spend money in shops, restaurants and hotels while you're away, with the peace of mind of knowing that you canít overspend.
Newest Review: ... and because I was travelling to Spain at the time I purchased the card, my card is loaded in Euros - although its important to realise that you can use the card to purchase items in any currency and use it to withdraw money from any bank or ATM that accepts Visa Debit cards. Like a credit card, you are given a PIN to be able to use your card securely - and unlike cash, you have the added ... more

I have had my Travelex prepaid travel card passport for about 18 months and I've used it on many many occasions throughout that time. I purchased it from the Travelex counter at Heathrow airport and it was a fairly quick and painless procedure. I have used it in Spain, South Africa, Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, USA and France over this period of time. The basic premise is that you can load this card in the same way as you might purchase travellers cheques and then you can use this card as a Visa Debit card when you go travelling. You have to load the card in either Sterling, Euro's or Dollars and because I was travelling to Spain at the time I purchased the ... Read the complete review

I have had so many problems with the cash passport from Travelex!I went to the USA for 2 weeks and had problems with the card from the first day. I tried to purchase some food on arrival but the card was declined and so i went to an ATM to check the balance and withdraw some funds but every ATM i tried in the area (including ATM's at well known banks) said they were enable to process my transactions.So i called the travelex support line and after waiting 30 minutes for someone to answer the phone the only advice they could give me was to keep trying different ATM's and they couldnt tell me why my card was being declined. RUBBISH! i will not be using this card again!

HiI went to Thailand a couple of years ago and got the travelex card - it saved me money as I didn't have to keep paying to change the travel cheques - you use as a debit card with a pin number - I thought it was great but i did put all money on it at the airport, I have thinking about money on it monthly to try and save for my next hol but now having seconds as someone has commented they kept losing his money - I will inquire.

When you go abroad, especially on holiday, what do you do about money? I must admit this is one of my biggest concerns, especially when we are visiting one of those areas in the World where this can be a real problem. Recently we visited the Dominican Republic and I wasnít sure what to do. I always carry with me three different currencies, Sterling, Euros and Dollars. I reckon that with these I can get by anywhere in the World. However, it never does to carry too much loose money around, with the eternal possibilities if muggers or pickpockets. Nevertheless, I would not feel comfortable without a reasonable supply of the readies. I also carry ... Read the complete review
