Our campaign to make things clearer
Brits holidaying abroad will incur up to £100 million debit and credit card fees each summer, according to our research. A prepaid card could save a family of four around £70 in fees alone during a 10-day holiday, but there is still considerable confusion surrounding travel money plastic, and the majority of holidaymakers will be stung by fees and charges as they rely on credit and debit cards while abroad.
We understand you'd rather be choosing between beaches than worrying about your travel money, so our Campaign for Clarity is here to help you cut through the confusion when comparing prepaid currency cards. As part of this campaign we have:
- Presented a new, standardised fees and charges table ensuring you know what you're paying
- Contacted the UK Card Association to recommend all prepaid providers adopt a standardised approach, to ensure consistency across the sector, and to help comparisons between providers
- Created a Glossary on our website to help you understand the terminology used
Wondering what all of the jargon means?
