Pre-Paid Travel Money Card

First Rate is an established pre-paid card programme manager. We manage the UK’s number 1 travel pre-paid card programme in the UK.

Travel pre-paid cards provide an opportunity to offer a product that meets the needs of your customers looking to travel abroad.

First Rate’s travel cards are currently available in One prepaid Mastercard® card for 13 currencies: Euro (EUR), US Dollar (USD), Australian Dollar (AUD), Canadian Dollar (CAD), Croatian Kuna (HRK), New Zealand Dollar (NZD), Polish Zloty (PLN), Pound Sterling (GBP), South African Rand (ZAR), Swiss Franc (CHF), Thai Baht (THB), Turkish Lira (TRY) and UAE Dirham (AED)

They are a secure and convenient way to spend money abroad, reducing the need to carry large amounts of cash in your wallet. They are ideal for annual holidays, gap-year travellers, long weekend breaks or frequent business travellers.

Your customers can lock their exchange rate in advance of going on holiday, so their money is not subject to any changes in local exchange rates.

The cards are fully reloadable both in the UK and abroad using our proven website, SMS and call centre services.
