10 currencies, 1 card

 

You can carry lots of different currencies on your Eurostar Currency Card at any one time. That means you’ll always know exactly how much your money’s worth, wherever you are. And you can spend freely whether you’re travelling to Europe for a long weekend or going long-haul for a big holiday.

The Eurostar Currency Card automatically knows which currency to spend whatever country you’re in. So, if your travel plans change, your card has you covered.

 

Lock in exchange rates

 

Every time you load your Eurostar Currency Card or move between currencies, the exchange rate of that day will be locked in. And there are no international transaction fees when you have funds on the card in the currency of the transaction.

So, even if the exchange rates go up or down, there’s no guess work when it comes to how much money you can spend.

 

Safe and secure spending

 

The Eurostar Currency Card uses Chip and PIN technology and is accepted at millions of locations and cash machines around the world. So you can spend safely and securely. If it's lost or stolen, you have the comfort of knowing that the card is not linked to your bank or credit card account.

 

Splash out online

 

Shop at international websites and pay in the local currency to avoid hidden exchange costs and transaction fees. Shopping around the world has never been easier and you’ll know exactly how much you’re spending.
