Things to watch out for

It's important to remember that there are a few things that your card is not built for. Since the 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 my card is lost, stolen or damaged?

    If your card is damaged, lost, stolen or misused, please contact card services immediately - you can call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Contact details can be found here.

    If you requested an additional backup card, you can continue accessing and spending your funds with no delay.

    If you don't have a backup card, don't worry; a replacement card can be organised for you. Alternatively, we can arrange for emergency cash in the local currency (up to the value remaining on the card and subject to availability), anywhere in the world, normally within 20 minutes (in some remote locations this could take up to 24 hours).

  • Is the card contactless?

    Travelex Money Card is Mastercard contactless enabled. Mastercard contactless is the faster way to pay for purchases of under GBP£30. No signature or PIN is required. Just tap your card against the reader and go. For more information, please click here.

    Please note, transaction limits are subject to change and different transaction limits will apply in different countries.

  • 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 don't wish 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 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 handle your personal data, here.
