When planning your Distant Journeys holiday, an important consideration is how best to take your spending money. Pre-paid currency cards are an easy, secure and reliable method – simply load your chosen currency to it before you leave, locking in the rate of exchange, then use it while on your tour like any normal debit card.
Currency cards are a good way of keeping track of your holiday spending as you can only spend what is loaded on the card. You can check your balance and add more money onto it via a smartphone app. The card can be easily blocked if lost or stolen.
Distant Journeys has partnered with Revolut, a digital banking app which offers a pre-paid physical or virtual currency card with great exchange rates on foreign currency.
The Revolut card offers 150 currencies and enjoys favourable exchange rates, making it a perfect card to use for any card payments, such as hotels and restaurants. You can withdraw cash from ATMs whilst abroad, but there is a limit of £200 per month before paying a 2% fee.
