How to choose the best prepaid card

Prepaid cards are another way to carry cash, just in a plastic card form.  You load prepaid cards with money when you first buy them and either spend it with retailers or online, or draw some of the money out from a cash machine as you need it.

Since they either have the MasterCard or Visa logos on them they are accepted in the same way as credit and debit cards in shops, bars and restaurants wherever these international card scheme networks are accepted both in the UK and overseas.

But the vast majority don’t have any borrowing facility so you can’t get into debt with them.  Instead, when you’ve spent the money loaded onto them you top them up again as you would a pay-as-you-go mobile phone. So how do you choose the best prepaid card?

What is a prepaid travel card?

Buying a prepaid card for your travels saves you having to carry around wads of cash when you’re on holiday.

You simply buy one and load it with money before you set off.  A prepaid card isn’t a credit card, so you can’t run up debts on them. You have a choice of currencies you can put on the card – pounds, euros or US dollars – depending on your destination.

If you’re travelling around Britain or going to a country where euros and US dollars aren’t the local currency, you should choose a sterling prepaid card. Whenever you use it abroad, the amount will be converted into the local currency at the current exchange rate set by the card company and taken off the card.

For travellers going to one of the 17 countries on the Continent within the Eurozone, a euro travel prepaid card is the right choice and if you’re holidaying in America choose a card loaded with dollars.  In this way you know what the exchange rate is at the start of your trip.
