After my passport, next essential is my travelex card

Quick, efficient service. Card is accepted everywhere. Helps to keep control of spending and easy to top up online.

Absolutely no problems, very convenient and staff very efficient. A better exchange rate would have been welcome but I realise that this is outwith your control

Its a Travelex Card every time for me.

The Travelex Card is ideal, I can top it up online direct out of my own bank & it saves me from travelling around with too much cash. The card can then be used like any normal debit card & transactions don’t attract any unwanted card fees like most other cards.
