MasterCard will be performing essential maintenance on their systems from Friday 29th April 2016 22:00 GMT, until Wednesday 4th May 2016 08:00 GMT at the latest. Customers will not be able to purchase or reload their Cash Passport while the maintenance is underway, but purchase and reload services may resume earlier. This maintenance does not affect card usage and customers will still be able to use their Cash Passport as normal for withdrawals from ATMs and to pay for purchases in shops on the high street and online.
Our prepaid Travel Card is the smart way to carry cash abroad and a cheap alternative to using debit or credit cards. Simply load your Travel Money Card with the currency of either Great British Pounds, Euros, US Dollars, Australian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, South African Rand or Canadian Dollars and when you’re away on your trip use the card to pay for goods in shops and restaurants or use it to withdraw money from one of millions of ATMs worldwide – just like your debit card at home.
When you purchase or top-up your Travel Money Card, you ensure that you exchange your travel money at the rate shown on the day, thereby avoiding exchange rate fluctuations and variations when you’re abroad. For home delivery simply specify your desired currency as well as the amount and your Travel Money Card will be posted by 1st class Royal Mail and should be with you within three working days. Or, to reserve your prepaid Travel Card simply go to our reserve and collect page, select your currency and the amount you’d like to top up and then click the 'Reserve' button beside the Cash Passport Card option. Your card will then be available to pick up from your choice of over 500 Thomas Cook stores. Our Travel Money Card is available in seven currencies (British Pounds, Euros, US Dollars, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars and South African Rand). Anytime you reload your card you lock-in the exchange rate which you see on the day of purchase. Our 'What's the Rate' currency calculator for Android and 'What’s the Rate' currency calculator for Apple iOS devices allows you to keep on top of the latest exchange rates and trends, as well as use the app to pre-order and reserve foreign currency or a prepaid travel money card to collect at your nearest Thomas Cook store.
