How our Dollar Card works


Transfer pounds from your debit/credit card to your Dollar Card and lock in a great rate. Your Dollar Card now has a dollar balance that can be topped up or unloaded at any time.


Use your card anywhere you see the Mastercard Acceptance Mark in shops, restaurants and at ATMs. Keep leftover funds for your next trip or spend it back home.

Top Tips

Always pay in the local currency

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

Use your Dollar Card online

Use your Dollar Card to shop on overseas websites if you’re paying in dollars 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 Dollar 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.

Go mobile with our app

Use the FairFX app to top-up your card, check your balance, send money abroad, order travel cash and get in touch with our customer service team. Available on iOS and Android.

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

It’s best not use your Dollar 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 Dollar Card to settle the bill.
