Travelex is very convenient to use while traveling. My husband has used his card to get cash from Italian ATMs with no issue. My reason for deducting one star is that sometimes I have difficulty signing into the website to reload the card or check balances. I'm never exactly sure of what the issue is but it usually won't take my login or password and I KNOW they are correct. I come back a bit later and it works ok.

I wanted to avoid the fees at the airport, so i ordered Pesos with the 9.99 shipping, a week ahead of time. It took longer for my order to be reviewed than I thought, but it arrived within 2 days as expected, and I avoided the time and energy I would have spent at the airport exchanging money. AWESOME service, thank you!
