Worked prefectly for our trip to Orlando in 2010 for both myself and my girlfriend. Used at the shops (though make sure you use it as a credit card, and not a debit card) and also at the ATM's.
Easy to get our money back off the card afterwards too. When we got the card our money was loaded and activated and ready to go straight away and we changed our pin numbers shortly after getting the card. They need two forms of ID to give you a card such as driving licence and passport, and also one… Read Full Review

IF YOU READ INSTRUCTIONS!!!! It is a simple card to apply for and use. You can only have ONE card in One currency. You pay a charge for atm withdrawals however you can take out upto 500 a day so use your discretion. You always load in sterling. It is not rocket science to work out if you put 1000 pounds on and spent 500 how much youve left!! The data protection act is law so what do you expect, its there for a reason!! Quite obvious all these complaints bar one or two are down to user inablity… Read Full Review

I have just returned from Florida and took a travel money card with me. Would advise any one to think twice before using one of these. I was never asked for the pin number or a signature when using this, it was just swiped. There is absloubtley no way of checking how much you have left on the card so you have to write down every time you use it. You are charged $3 every time you withdraw money from an atm and quite often spent about half an hour trying to figure out which account you are… Read Full Review

I was working in the UK for three years and because of some issues with my employer, I decided to go back to India.

Thay asked me a hundred question… Read Full Review

I took out a euro card as I was offered a better rate on my whole currency purchase ( £3000) if I took a card out.
I put £500 on a card and took the rest in cash.
When I tried to use it in Mallorca I was asked for ID, Which they refused as the name on the card wasn't mine. It just stated A Traveller, which my ID obviously didn't. I tried to explain it was a prepaid card but they didn't understand.
So I returned to the UK with 270euro on the card. (I managed to use it at the car hire… Read Full Review
