We know our readers are a well-travelled lot so we thought you'd be interested in this offer we found on the Tuxedo Travel MasterCard Prepaid card. They're offering to refund the card purchase fee (£9.95)
when you load £30 within the first month.
Tuxedo's Travel MasterCard Prepaid cards are good for travellers as there are no fees for purchases abroad
, and no exchange rate conversion fees
to pay when you take out currency abroad. Their exchange rates are pretty competitive too.
You can also earn up to 20% cashback
when you use your Tuxedo Travel MasterCard Prepaid card with selected travel companies - offering everything from flights to car hire. Click here for full details and to apply online with Tuxedo Money
Unlike a normal credit or debit card, you load cash onto a Tuxedo Travel MasterCard Prepaid card in advance. There's no fee for loading money onto the card by bank transfer (fees apply for other methods) and no fee for buying something on your card when you're abroad.
Note there is a fee for taking money out of an ATM both at home and abroad (£1.50) and there are fees if you use your card for transactions in the UK.
Customers who want to take advantage of this special offer will pay £19.95
when they apply for the card - that breaks down as £9.95 for the card purchase fee and a £10 initial load. That means customers only need to load another £20 onto the card and the card fee will be refunded.
We've outlined the main benefits (and costs) for travellers here - but as with all financial products you should check all the fees yourself here
before you apply!
