FairFX Currency Card


Prepaid currency cards are an alternative way to fund your holiday, without any associated fees that may arise getting hold of your money abroad and eliminating the risk of carrying physical cash on you in unfamiliar countries.

Travel currency cards can be topped-up and used to make payments or used in cashpoints. As well as this, FairFX cards can be topped up via internet or mobile phone while you are on your trip, so should you run short, you won't have to pay local rates for your money.

How the FairFX currency card works

Sign Up - Order here by loading £10 worth of currency to your FREE card.

Activate - Receive your card and PIN within 10 days and then activate.

Top Up - Top up with your chosen currency and use wherever you see the MasterCard symbol.

Benefits of the FairFX Card:

  • Use like a debit/credit card without incurring charges for using your card abroad
  • The card is FREE
  • Use it anywhere in the world where you see the MasterCard logo
  • Chip and PIN protection for your security and peace of mind
  • Manage your FairFX Card from your mobile phone via the FairFX app
  • Convenient to use - just load and spend
  • £10 pre-loaded (you pay £10, you get £10 in your chosen currency)
  • Zero hidden fees

Ordering your card

Once you have ordered your card, it may take up to 7-10 working days to receive it. Providing there are no delays however, you may receive your card as early as 3-5 working days.

Topping up

You can top up online, with a debit or credit card or by bank transfer. Once payment has been received, funds will usually be available for use within minutes. Be aware however, that on extremely rare occasions this can be longer, as for security purposes some loads are held back on random selection while their validity is checked.

The minimum load per single transaction is £50, €60 or $75. Maximum card load of £2500.00, €3750.00 or $5000.00 per week
