How it Works

How it Works

The Multi-currency Cash Passport Prepaid MasterCard® is a flexible travel money product.

By combining the security of travelers 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 the Card in a Travelex store or online here and load funds onto it (in multiple Currencies#) before you travel.

You can reload your Card at participating US Travelex stores, online here or over the phone and it’s ready for your next trip.

The Card can be used worldwide to get money from ATMs and to buy things wherever Debit MasterCard is accepted and you see the MasterCard or Maestro® Acceptance Mark or the Accel logo.

#The Currencies on the Card may vary from time to time and are subject to availability.


..and this is what makes it smart

Your Card can carry multiple Currencies when you travel and it will select the applicable Currency to use. Load it with British Pounds Sterling, Euros, Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars Japanese Yen and / or Mexican Pesos and keep it loaded with the relevant Currency for your destination(s).

CAUTION: Loads may not be made in US Dollars. Therefore, if you cancel your travel plans or your plans change and you want to convert the funds to US Dollars, the Currency Transfer Fee will apply (see the fees and limits for additional details).

If you don’t have enough of the local Currency on your Card, it will automatically revert to the other Currencies on your Card in the following order: USD, GBP, EUR, CAD, AUD JPY and MXN to determine if you can cover the bill in another Currency. Please keep 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 make the transfer.
