The Ultratravel Currency Card, a first of its kind visa card has been launched to provide a range of benefits specifically to the luxury traveler. Launched by Ultratravel in conjunction with Visa, the card is free to apply for and there is no annual fee. Three separate cards are available – loaded with US Dollars, Euros or UK Sterling – and individuals can decide the amount they wish to pre-load and re-load onto their card (subject to the card’s maximum limits), at competitive exchange rates you are unlikely to find at the airport or on the high street. The Ultratravel Currency Card is a Visa card and works like any other payment card. It is accepted worldwide and is very easy to load and reload with currency, either online, over the phone or by SMS. All the details – and up-to-date comparative exchange rates – can be found at www.ultratravelcard.com.
When used in the currency loaded onto it, the Card avoids currency charges that are often applied by a bank when a credit card or debit card is used overseas. There are no transaction charges with the Ultratravel Currency Card, which can be used in millions of shops and restaurants outside the UK. The card also charges a low fixed overseas ATM fee of £1.50 ($2.4) when you withdraw cash outside UK.
