Why choose a travel money card instead of cash?

  • When travelling, it is important to keep your money safe. Carrying a lot of cash can make you a target for theft, and if you lose it, you may not be able to get it back. A travel money card is a safer option because it can be blocked if lost or stolen, and you can get a replacement card quickly.
  • A travel money card — also known as a currency card — can be used like a credit or debit card at millions of locations worldwide. This means you can pay for purchases, withdraw cash, and check your balance just like you would with your regular bank card.
  • Free ATM cash withdrawals up to £200 a month: Some banks and travel card companies charge fees for using your card abroad. With the Wise travel money card, you only pay a small fee on withdrawals after the first £200. Avoid hidden fees in the exchange rate while withdrawing from ATMs abroad. Learn more about our pricing
  • Real exchange rate: Wise travel money cards use the mid-market exchange rates that you see on Google, which means you can get more money for your currency exchange. This can help you save money and stretch your travel budget further.
  • Reloadable and reusable for your next trip: A travel money card is not a one-time-use option. It is reloadable and reusable, which means you can use it again for future trips. You can add funds to your card as needed, and you won't have to worry about exchanging money every time you travel.
