Super easy to use

Super easy to use; convenient to order in advance. Would be helpful to improve navigation of mobile version of website when adding value to money card. Not a huge obstacle. Money card is definitely most convenient; read up on ATM fees in destination country.

Great fast service

Great fast service. I find it more convenient to get currency before I travel rather than via ATM overseas. Just returned fron 2 week tour of Europe. Several people in te group had bad experiences with ATMs over there.

I have had good service on the phone when I have called and it has provided ease of use and efficiency in my travel. I do have one concern. I received a gift card from Amazon and if Travelex is sharing my information with Amazon, I want to know it!

very convenient

I loaded the card with Euros, then used it throughout my trip to pay expenses. This is much better than carrying cash. I only encountered one restaurant that didn't accept the card - they only accepted VISA.
