When travelling with our kids, my husband and I tend not to carry a ton of cash with us. We already have to keep track of rental car seats, water bottles, travel documentation and multiple bags and suitcases that having a wad of cash or pile of coins to deal with on top of everything else causes too much stress.
Most of our purchases during a trip is paid for with one or two credit cards but the one thing that worries us – especially if it’s a longer vacation outside of Canada – is the exchange rate and fees we’ll be charged with each swipe of our cards.
SellOffVacations recently introduced a unique prepaid foreign currency card that helps families stick to a budget while travelling – the SellOffVacations Travel FX card.
How Does the SellOffVacations Travel FX Card Work?
1. Purchase the Currency of Your Destination to Lock in the Exchange Rate
You can load up to the equivalent of $3000 CDN in US Dollars, Mexican Pesos, British Pounds and Euros on the SellOffVacations Travel FX card before your trip. At the time of purchase, the foreign exchange rate is locked in and you won’t have to worry about daily exchange fluctuations and fees like you would with a credit card.
2. Use the Card at Locations Where MasterCard is Accepted
You can use the card worldwide wherever MasterCard is accepted – online, over the phone, at ATMs or retail locations.
Why Parents Will Love the SellOffVacations Travel FX Card
1. You’ll Be Able to Stick to Your Budget
The only fees you pay are the low purchase cost of the SellOffVacations Travel FX card and the exchange rate at the time you load it with foreign currency. Since you’re able to set everything up before your trip, you won’t have to worry about fluctuating exchange rates, and accidentally going over your budget.
The SellOffVacations Travel FX card is an easy way to travel with foreign currency and cheaper than using your credit cards or withdrawing cash with your primary card at international ATMs.
2. Easy Online Account Set Up
Don’t have time to visit the bank before your vacation? You can set up an account online and the card will be delivered to your home within a few days.
3. Track Your Spending While on Vacation
Parents can track their daily spending and review their remaining balance by logging into their account at SellOff.TravelPrepaid.ca
4. Cards are Reloadable
If you’re running low on funds, simply login to your account and purchase more foreign currency on your card.
5. Safe & Secure
The SellOffVacations Travel FX cards are not linked in any way to your bank account and are protected with both chip and PIN technology. The Contact Centre is also open 24 hours, 7 days a week to address any questions or concerns that you may have while on vacation.
6. Funds Never Expire
