Caxton Travel Currency

by Mulan, 1 day ago
Recommended by Mulan

I have both a Euro currency card & an international one. I have used the international one to obtain cash from various currency's ATM's with easy. These have included Oz dollars & Singapore dollars, at very low charge rates. These charges increase if international card used in Europe, hence why I also have one of their Euro cards. They also have the option of a US dollars card but have not traveled to the States, but will be obtaining if I get to head there

Caxton FX Prepaid Currency Cards

by Greenlizzard, 1 day ago
Recommended by Greenlizzard

If you are thinking about Prepaid travel cards, look no further than Caxton, I have been using a Euro card for a couple of years now across Europe and never had any problems using the card in stores or retrieving cash from ATMs, they make it so easy to manage your money and the best bit is that when you come back from abroad you are not charged a monthly fee for not using your card like a lot of other prepaid card providers.

I also took out a Dollar card this year for the US and used it in New York, Washington and Florida and did not have any real problems, the only thing to be aware of is some stores in america see the card as a credit card and not a debit card, so when you put the card in the machine and you have to make a choice, sometimes it rejects the card but that is not caxton's fault.

Caxton FX prepaid currency card

by Snaj83, 3 weeks 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 month 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.

Going abroad? Why carry loads of cash?

by autumna3, 1 week ago
feel safer abroad
another pin to try to remember
Recommended by autumna3

The Caxton card is very handy, you just top it up in currency before you go (from GBP) so your rate is fixed and you don't have to carry foreign cash around - just pop your card into an ATM and off you go! It was really easy to apply (from what I remember, it was a while ago now) and you can pick from most major currencies. I think it is online only, which may put some people off, but I never had a problem!

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

by ecd09, 1 month 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, 1 month 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, 4 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 "...
