How it works

Take control of your spending abroad with our multi award-winning Travel Money Card Plus prepaid MasterCard

Travel Money Card Plus is a prepaid MasterCard that puts you in control of your holiday spending. This multi award-winning card is so easy to use and is totally secure. You can manage your account from anywhere via an app, online or even by text message. Watch the video below to discover more about it.
 

How it works

  • Simply preload your card with Sterling. We convert them into your chosen currency. Then you can use it just like a debit card in shops, bars and restaurants - anywhere that accepts MasterCard.
  • If you need cash you can withdraw currency from any of the 1.5million ATMs that accept MasterCard. An ATM fee will apply, so please see the Fees & Limits tab for details of these charges. 
  • Your Travel Money Card Plus is not linked to your bank account, so it reduces your risk of identity theft. If your card is lost or stolen, your money is protected too (terms and conditions apply).
  • You won't pay a fee for using your Travel Money Card Plus in the country of the currency on your card, if your bill in France is €50 you will pay €50 on your Euro card (fees apply when using cards in countries where your currency is not the national currency).
  • Widely accepted in over 36 million locations in 210 countries around the world.
  • Check your balance, top up your card or view recent transactions via our website, text messaging, smartphone app or our UK call centre 24 hours a day.
  • Free smartphone app available from the Apple App Store or Google play giving you full control of your account at the touch of a button.
  • Top up while away with our mobile app
