HEADING FOR WINTER SUN? Avoid hefty overseas credit card charges with the Travellers Cash Card from ICE
The endless stream of wet and windy weather will have more people reaching for their passports and flying off for some winter sun, but be aware of foreign usage charges on credit cards, warns International Currency Exchange (ICE). Don’t get stung with extra fees on overseas ATM withdrawals, pack the ICE Travellers Cashcard – no charges, no fuss.
“At this time of year, all the great holiday deals make it more affordable than ever to head off to warmer climes,” says Andrew Hamilton, Head of Marketing at ICE. “However, major credit card issuers often increase their charges for customers using cards to withdraw cash abroad. All of a sudden that bargain winter break could end up costing more than travellers budgeted for, as these fees can really mount up. The ICE Travellers Cashcard offers holidaymakers the convenience of a credit card, without the extra charges.”
The ICE Travellers Cashcard offers travellers a real alternative to travellers cheques and cash, as well as helping them avoid hefty bank charges. The Prepaid MasterCard is accepted at over 25 million ATMs, shops and restaurants in over 120 countries worldwide. Carrying the MasterCard brand, the card is accepted wherever travellers see the logo displayed.
Available in Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Euro (EUR), the ICE Travellers Cashcard is PIN protected, for the ultimate protection in case of theft. Safe and convenient, the cashcard means there is no need to carry cash or travellers cheques.
Hamilton concludes, “For the ultimate in safety and convenience, the ICE Travellers Cashcard means holidaymakers can enjoy meals out and a spot of shopping without worrying about overseas charges stacking up. It not only offers greater protection from fraud and theft but it is also easy to top up online if funds get low, so there’s no need to keep a very high balance on it. The card can be topped up 5 times a month.”
