Tuxedo Travel Pre-Paid cards are a great way to manage your money. Whether you’re using the card as a holiday budgeting tool or as an easy way to share money in the UK or abroad with friends and family, the Tuxedo Travel Pre-Paid card meets your needs.

The Tuxedo Travel Pre-Paid card provides the easy-to-use *eccount. This allows you to manage your money wherever you are, worldwide. By adding a FREE companion cards to the e*ccount, you can easily share money with friends and family in the UK and abroad (not India) by giving them the companion card and also make online purchases. Please note that a companion card can be held in the primary cardholder’s name or their nominated family member or friend. Companion cardholders must be 13 years old or above.

Each *e*ccount can hold a maximum of 6 cards – 1 primary and 1 companion card in each of the following currencies:

  • GBP Sterling

The companion card is a brilliant feature of the Tuxedo Travel Pre-Paid card. Imagine you are on holiday and your primary card is lost or stolen. If you had taken your companion card and kept it in the hotel safe, you can arrange an instant transfer of funds from your primary card to the companion card and block your primary card. It is secure and convenient and avoids you being left without access to cash whilst abroad.
