Top Tips

Always pay in the local currency

If you’re in the Eurozone and you’re given the option to pay in euros or pounds, always choose euros. Otherwise you allow the vendor to choose the exchange rate, which may be a poor one.

Use your Euro Card online

Use your Euro Card to shop on overseas websites if you’re paying in euros and they accept Mastercard. That way you still benefit from our great rates.

Plan ahead and lock in great rates

Load every time the pound is having a good day, and your travel money will go further. We’ll even email you to let you know. Pretty great.

Share funds with family & friends

Link up to 5 Family and Friends Cards to your Euro Card and share holiday money with the whole group. A convenient and secure way for everyone to carry their spending money.

Order your card in advance

Don't wait until the last minute before you order your card. FairFX Cards usually arrive within 5 working days. In exceptional circumstances it might take slightly longer.

Keep the card

Your card is a Mastercard valid for 3 years after which you simply renew, so remember to keep it for your next trip.

Spend leftover funds back home

Don’t worry about returning home with euros still on your card. Leave the funds on your card for your next trip or spend back home fee-free.

Check in with a debit/credit card, check out with your Euro Card

It’s best not use your Euro Card when checking into a hotel or hiring a car as they may ring-fence funds for up to 21 days for ‘pre-authorisation’, so you can’t spend it. If you’re asked for a card to keep on record we suggest you use a debit/credit card, and use your Euro Card to settle the bill.
