Caxton fx Prepaid Card Reviews

Caxton FX prepaid currency card

by Snaj83, 1 day ago
Recommended by Snaj83

I have had this card for over 5 years and use it whenever I am away.

I have used it to take cash out when backpacking which was great as I could use it at any cashpoint in any country to take our local currency.

There is no fee or commission.

It's very easy to top up online and the money is added to the card within a couple of hours. You can then withdraw to your nominated bank account easily too.

I have the Global card which can be used worldwide.

Caxton fx currency card

by helengr1, 1 week ago
good idea
not always work

I got this card to use abroad in multiple countries. I have used it probably 4-5 times but in 2 places I could not obtain my money using this card which was frustrating. I dont know why as the same ATM accepted visa and had a mastercard symbol but in India and Iceland it would not work for me. When it has worked the exchange rate has been fair and reasonable.

Caxton Prepaid card - perfect for keeping track of holiday money!

by ecd09, 1 week ago
Recommended by ecd09

We first got our Caxton cards when we travelled to Florida with our children. So much easier than travellers cheques, or carrying cash, which we were not keen on doing. The cards arrived quickly once we had completed the forms and we were instantly able to 'top up' the cards from our bank account. While we were using the cards on the holiday, we were able to keep track of our spending, as transactions showed online almost instantly. We used the card to pay in restaurants, shops and to withdraw cash. I have since used the card when travelling in Europe as well, as it can be used for Euros as well as USD. Great card, can't recommend it enough!

Caxton Prepaid card

by NorfolkSquire, 2 weeks ago
excellent customer service and easy to use products
Recommended by NorfolkSquire

I have had a Caxton card for a while now and have found it very useful when travelling abroad on holiday. I mainly go to Europe, Spain or Portugal. For me I preferred it to cash or credit card although I did take my credit card with me. I think its just a better way to stay in control of your spending and be aware of the exchange rates at the same time.

Caxton Prepaid euro card ?...yes 5 stars

by rosetta, 3 months ago
Does what it says
0
Recommended by rosetta

Yep went for it .....great ..

Just fill it with euros ,when you know the currency rate is good ...takes two ticks ..

Then collect cash at the ATMs abroad. No charge (except at private AtMs ). When you might need the cash for the 'Vide Grenier'....car boot .... Or that fresh Baguette ...

Also use the card at supermarkets restaurants etc .

Great ....I still use my Best card abroad 'Credit card ...but the Caxton gets my seal of Approval "...

Not brilliant, too much hidden in T & Cs

by iesuma, 3 months ago

I opened a 'Global Traveller' account a year or so ago, mainly as my son was visiting New York. The ATM usage limits were not made clear enough, he found out when trying to use the card more than twice in 24 hrs and 5 times in 4 days - he was 15 and not wanting to carry large amounts of cash.
Subsequently, my wife and I used the facitlity last summer when visiting the South of France. Not accepted at tolls on the autoroutes nor at automated petrol stations (to be fair they state this in the T & Cs). Also wasn't accepted at a car parking payment machine in Saint Raphael. You MUST have a back-up of sorts or you WILL be caught out.
To cap it all, loaded the card again today and thought I'd better test it with my local ATM (just call it a lack of confidence) and successfully withdrew £5. I later found I was charged £1.50 for the privilege, again included in the T & Cs, but does that make it fair and reasonable?
I will keep the account open as, now that I'm aware of the pitfalls which are definitely not made clear enough (hidden away in T & Cs), it will be useful to have as long as not wholly relied upon.

Caxton FX offer prepaid cards in lots of currencies, it's better than carrying cash about.

by willstain, 27 Jun 2013
Only good, buy online or by phone, quick n' easy
There's nothing bad, a great company to deal with.
Recommended by willstain

Great company with great rates for foreign currencies or buy Sterling. Take money from ATMs or use the card to pay for goods and services as you would with any other card. If buying foreign currencies choose a day when Stering is high and spend it when you will. They have the best charges of any cash card that I have seen.

applied on behalf of my 18 year old daughter going abroad with friends for the first time. for the security aspect, flexibility & safety ( as well as being very competitive with regard to exchange charges). I ordered the global card as it was for outside europe travel . card and activation process & loading process very swift with the option of me being able to add more money to the card while she is abroad if necessary
