How the EasyFX Prepaid Currency Card compares to the Banks

Many people are still using their bank debit card abroad, often incurring unnecessarily high charges, and getting poor High Street Exchange Rates when buying Holiday money or on business travel.

Bank charges whilst abroad can cost you as much as 10% in fees; combining poor exchange rates with transaction fees, ATM charges, and in some cases additional handling charges.

Using Your Bank Debit Card Abroad

When you use your bank debit card abroad, High St. Banks typically mark up their currency between 3% and 6%. In addition, most banks will also charge a transaction fee (Lloyds Bank charge a 2.99% fee for example). You are also often charged ATM withdrawal fees on top of getting poor exchange rates. This can mean that for every £100 you withdraw or spend, you could end up with having only £90 in currency value.
