Things to watch out for
It’s important to remember that there are a few things that your card’s not built for.
Since Travelex Money Card is a prepaid card, we recommend that you don’t use it for reserving a rental car or hotel room, on a cruise, or at an automated fuel pump. For more information, see our fees and limits.

What do I do if I am already an MCP customer?
On 3rd April 2017, Travelex changed the prepaid card offerings made available to customers.
Previously online we had 3 Cash Passport prepaid products you could buy, The Multi-currency Cash Passport Card, where you could load up to 10 currencies, the Globe Card in pounds and the single currency Cash Passport.
We’ve simplified our prepaid card offering from the three different cards previously available, by upgrading to the Travelex Money Card: a Platinum card with added features and benefits. Now you can choose to buy and load into the full 10 currencies available, including pounds.
Your Multi-currency/Single currency/Globe card is still valid for use until the date of expiry. You can still reload it here and use it until it expires.
If you choose to buy a Travelex Money Card and already have an existing Cash Passport card, you will need to transfer the balance on your Cash Passport card to your new Travelex Money Card within 30 days of the purchase of the Travelex Money Card.
However, if you do not want to purchase the Travelex Money Card, you can still use your existing Cash Passport card. Please note, we are no longer selling new Cash Passports.
How will the change of issuer from R. Raphael & Sons to Wirecard Card Solutions Limited affect me and my card?
The change of issuer will have no effect on how you use your card and you can continue to use it as normal until the expiry date on the card. You can find information about how Wirecard Card Solutions Limited handle your personal data at https://www.wirecard-cardsolutions.co.uk/privacy-policy/
What are my choices if I am not happy with these changes?
If you are unhappy with these changes, you have the right to cancel your card agreement with no cash out fee by contacting Card Services using the following details:
Call Card Services on 0800 260 0355 (which is free phone when calling from the UK)
You need to do this before 12th March 2019, otherwise we will consider that you have accepted the changes.
What happens after 12th March 2019?
You don’t need to do anything and we hope you will continue to enjoy using your card as normal.

If you’re one of our existing Cash Passport customers, not to worry. You can still use your existing Cash Passport until the expiry date on the front of the card. However, the good news is that you can also order and start using your Travelex Money Card right away, even whilst your current Cash Passport is still valid. You can also transfer the balance on your existing Cash Passport to your new Travelex Money Card in the same currencies and at no extra cost by contacting Card Services.
