How it Works

How it Works

Travelex’s Multi-currency Cash Passport is a flexible travel money product.
By combining the security of travellers cheques with the convenience of plastic, the Card really is the better way to manage travel money.

Here's how it works...

It's a prepaid currency card, which means that you buy your own Multi-currency Cash Passport online at or from any participating UK Travelex store and load funds onto it (in multiple Currencies#) before you travel.

You can top up/reload your Card online, at participating UK Travelex stores, via e-banking or over the phone, and have it ready for your next trip.

The Card can be used worldwide to get money from ATMs and to buy things.

..and this is what makes it smart


Your Card can carry up to 10 Currencies at any time and always knows which Currency to use, wherever you are. Load it with British Pounds Sterling, Euros, US Dollars, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, South African Rand, Swiss Franc, Turkish Lira and Emirati Dirham, and top it up whilst you’re abroad or for next time you travel.

If you don’t have enough local Currency to make a purchase, your Card will automatically draw from another Currency purse, in the order listed above, to allow you to complete the transaction. Please bear in mind that you will be charged a foreign exchange fee should this occur (see the fees and limits table).

Your Card also allows you to move money from one Currency to another, meaning you can make use of any leftover Currency at your next destination. Simply log on to your online account and you can make the transfer.


Multi-currency Cash Passport makes it easy to explore the world...

Multi-currency Cash Passport offers you the choice of carrying multiple Currencies on one Card. You can load one Currency, or more, the choice is yours, and it will work nearly everywhere in the world! You can use the Card at cash machines and millions of locations worldwide.

..and it helps keep your travel money safe

Using Multi-currency Cash Passport is a safe and smart way to carry your travel money.

If cash is lost or stolen, it's gone for good. However, you don't have that worry with money that's loaded onto a Multi-currency Cash Passport. A lost or stolen Card can be replaced within 2-5 working days or you can receive emergency cash up to the available balance on your Card, often within a matter of hours, depending on your location and availability of our money transfer network.

Plus, the Card is chip and PIN protected, with no links to your bank account, to help keep you safe from fraudsters.
