Hello, I’m a little bewildered by all the card options available but basically my 18 year old son is going on his first ‘lads holiday’ and we have been looking at getting one of these pre paid cards so he doesn’t have lots of cash on him at one time. Which ones are the best on the market? I don’t want him having a ‘credit’ card one as I’m not happy with him taking out credit at 18 and getting into dept!
Any advice please? Ideally one that has an app would be preferred.

Does anyone know if my 17 year old can get a prepaid travel money card (euros) ? I'll be loading the money on to it for her, for a trip to Europe this summer.
I'm wondering whether I will have to get one of my own and add her on to it as a secondary card holder, or is there one which is suitable for someone her age? All the ones I've found have a minimum age of 18.
thanks in advance

I have just bought a FairFx card on line ready for our trip to the states.I am in a big group and I only wanted it to cover for meals out etc so decided circa £600 would be enough. Heres the thing, - if you buy more than £500 they give you £35 discount. Even although their exchange rate before the discount is a bit off the best you can get, I ended up with $729.60 for £565. So thats an exchange rate of just over $1.29 to the pound. Todays best exchange rate otherwise was 1.224 OK it only works out that welll if you go just a bit over the £500 (dont forget the discount goes off after you input so I guess you would need to order £540 as a minimum). I am just wondering wetherr to get others on our trip to do the same - it seems unbeatable as long as you do a bit over £500 on each new card.

I went to a TC branch on friday to open a lyk prepaid card, didnt have my passport so couldnt do it the exchange rate was 1.8 in the shop, and on line, went back the day after, exchange rate on line was 1092.3 on line. Loaded £1000 on card. went home to register card and balance was only £1000.2o euros meaning the rate in shop was level yet still 1092.3 on line, do you think I should be able to contest this in shop as they didnt tell me the rate was so low, feeling really unhappy as have lost out on £90
