Using pre-paid cards
If you like to budget your spending money abroad but don’t like carrying cash, a pre-paid currency card can be great. Load the card up with your chosen amount before you go away, and use it just like a debit card.
With most pre-paid cards, you’ll be able to top up whilst you’re abroad too. With the Travelex Cash PassportTM*, you'll be able to lock in your exchange rate each time you load or reload your Card, so you can take advantage of a great currency exchange rate.Discover our Cash Passport
Using your debit or credit card
It's usually a good idea to avoid using your debit or credit card abroad, because you risk being charged steep transaction fees each time that you do.
However, with the Travelex Supercard, you can wave goodbye to bank card roaming fees forever. Simply link your bank cards to the Supercard app and use your Supercard to spend abroad like you would it the UK. It's surely one of the best ways to take money abroad.Discover Supercard
Don't pay in pounds!
Sometimes when you're spending abroad in a restaurant or shop you’ll be asked if you want to pay in pounds instead of in the local currency.
This is something called dynamic currency conversion and generally, you should steer clear because it usually means that you’ll end up paying a higher exchange rate.
