My order was successful. Why haven’t I received a confirmation e-mail?

Why has my order been rejected?
For security reasons, Travelex is not permitted to inform you of the reason your order was rejected.
My order was rejected, but I checked my bank account and it shows that you withdrew money. Why?
If your order was rejected, the funds available in your account may have decreased by the value of your order, but you have not made a payment to Travelex. Instead, your card issuer has provided Travelex with authorization to take the funds and placed those funds on hold. These funds are usually released within 10 working days, depending on your card issuer. Please contact your card issuer for more information.

How do I purchase a Cash Passport Card?
It’s easy – either purchase your Cash Passport card here on our website or find a store near you.
What’s the difference between a Chip & PIN card and my regular credit card?
Here in the United States, the credit card industry continues to use the magnetic stripe technology (this is the black stripe you see on the back of any credit or debit card). Sometimes international travelers report acceptance issues abroad using their current credit and debit cards. The Chip & PIN technology allows for wider acceptance abroad. Further, your personal information is not on the Cash Passport, reducing the risk of identity theft if your card is lost or stolen.
What currencies can I load on my Cash Passport Card?
At this time you’re able to load Euros, British Pounds, Australian Dollars, Japanese Yen and Canadian Dollars. We’ll be adding even more currencies in the near future. Select from the appropriate drop down to the right to quickly purchase or reload if you already have an existing Multi-Currency Cash Passport™ Prepaid Mastercard®.
How do I replace a lost or stolen card?
If your card is lost or stolen, contact Cash Passport Customer Services immediately at 877-856-2471 so they can cancel the lost or stolen card and provide you with a free* replacement. Rest assured that your balance is PIN protected and you can still access those funds with either your replacement or secondary Card.
How do I cash out my card?
If your trip is over and you don’t plan on taking another one any time soon, you can cash-out your card to get the remaining balance returned to you. There are a few different ways to withdraw your remaining balance (fees may apply):
- Use an ATM that accepts Debit MasterCard (assuming it’s within the ATM’s issuing limits)
- Take your card to any Travelex location and we’ll withdraw the balance for you, less any applicable fees (see your Terms & Conditions for further details)
- Call the number on the back of your card (877-856-2471) and speak to a representative.
