  • Simply buy, top up or move money on your Card before you travel and your money is with you whenever you need it

*Some merchants or cash machine operators may charge a fee or set their own transaction limits. Please confirm whether any fees or limits apply before making a purchase or withdrawal.

Here for the long haul

Your Card isn't just for one trip; you can use it again and again (up to the expiry date shown on the Card) and simply top it up whenever you like#. You can keep your Card free of charge for 12 months from the date of purchase, withdrawal or reload.

If you haven't had any activity on your Card for more than 12 months, a small inactivity fee will be charged (see the fees and limits section).

Keeping you on track

If you have a problem using your Card, here are the things you should check first.

  • Check you have enough money on the Card for the purchase you wish to make - you can do that here online at 'My Account'
  • Check you are using the correct PIN. The 'How do I? Can I?' section above advises you how to get a PIN reminder
  • Check that the merchant you are purchasing from accepts MasterCard® Prepaid

    Because of new EU requirements, merchants in the EU/EEA will be able to choose whether or not they wish to accept MasterCard prepaid/debit/credit or commercial cards. Please check with the merchant, as they have to inform you if they decide not to accept all types of MasterCard cards. Merchants will also be expected to display this information prominently at the entrance of the shop and at the till or, in the case of distance sales, this information should be displayed on the merchant’s website or other applicable electronic or mobile medium.

  • Your Card has maximum limits on how much you can withdraw or spend, for example a maximum daily amount that you can spend in a shop. These limits are shown in the fees and limits table. In addition, some cash machines may have their own limits

If none of the above applies, or resolves your query, then it's worth reviewing the Frequently Asked Questions on this website.
