Avoid the travelex cash passport like the plague. Go to a post office and take cash.
Thought it'd be safer to use the card, and the rates looked comparable. Positive - stores did accept it.
Online system wouldn't post the card
Ordering the card triggered fraud alert on my bank account
Couldn't top up online while abroad
Phoning to top up cost almost £5 in call costs, and had an incompetent, rude assistant on the phone - who told me I'd need to visit my COUNCIL to approve the address on their system!
To top it all, when I came back and tried to withdraw what was left over the counter in Euros, I was told to 'go to europe to do that'.
WILL NOT USE AGAIN!!
