As well as booking your airport parking and hotel, in preparation for your trip to the states, you will need to secure your travel money. It's always a good idea to pre-order your money to avoid potential extra charges that may occur in airports or in the country you're travelling to. Not only this, you'll be able to relax with the peace of mind that your travel money is sorted before you even depart.

Prepaid currency cards
The FairFX Prepaid MasterCard® Currency Card is a convenient, alternative way to carry your travel money. FairFX travel money cards can be topped up from your mobile phone via the FairFX app available on iOS and Android and used to make payments, just ilke a credit/debit card.

For many, carrying physical cash when abroad is the way to go. It often gives peace of mind, knowing that the money is physically in your hand before you depart. It's always recommended that you have some physical cash on you in case of emergencies such as getting around on public transport or buying food on the go, especially in the first 24 hours of your trip. Order your travel cash in advance and you'll avoid any associated costs that may arise with changing your money in the US or at the airport.
