FREE easyJet Prepaid Euro Currency Card when you load with £100!

Came across this card by easyJet when looking for a prepaid currency card to use on holiday - it seems to be the best on the market with no withdrawal fees for UK or Eurozone ATMs, no transaction or management costs etc compared to a lot of others on the market.

Great alternative to carrying around a large amount of cash on holiday and very easy to use and top up online - mine arrived within a few days.

The card also lasts for 5 years, so you can keep it in your wallet and just top-up online ready for your next trip rather than having to go to the Post Office or order cash online.

Poor exchange rates. Most of Travel Money cards are now free, i.e. Post Office. Also with post office you get much better rates when buying online.

I initially thought the same, but the rates are actually better too - a rate of over 1.14 on the easyJet card vs 1.13 to buy £100 online from the Post Office.

Is the exchange rate any good

1.165 on Kalixa not free card tho
fx.kalixa.com/en-…es/

So how do these UK ATM withdrawals work then? Your £100 will be converted into euros when topping up. Presumably its subject to double conversion for UK ATM withdrawals say I wouldnt want to keep money leftovers in the card.

@whatyadoinsucka - it shows you on the site and I think it changes daily, it was 1.14 last time I checked.

@dealfella - the rate may be better on the kalixa card, but it looks like it's £2.25 per ATM withdrawal - easyJet card is free.

Just ordered. Like the fact that the minimum top up is 10 euros. most are 50 euros plus. Only want to put bits and bobs on weekly/daily etc... good way to build up an amount without noticing it...

Cheers OP

€100 EUR at 1.14 = £87.71
€100 EUR at 1.14 = £88.49

for £0.80 difference I still rather go with post office one. Also post office quite often have sales on. I got text back in mid June and the rate were awsome.

There might not be withdrawal fee in the UK but they will still charge you conversion rate (i.e. buy back rate).

Post Office card charges you €2.00 per ATM withdrawal in the eurozone though? Can't imagine how much that would add up to over a 2 week holiday.

One of the main benefits of the easyJet card over others I've seen on the market is no ATM withdrawal fees in the eurozone.

CaxtonFX card has no ATM fees + £5 quidco/TCB

The Caxton card is good with TCB/quidco, but it does charge for Domestic ie UK ATM and Point of Sale transactions - easyJet does not

Yep but they dont charge for purchases. How often will you use ATM abroad?!
You can also top up post office one online or at any of 12000 branches across the UK

Can I make free online purchase? Or make payments into bank account using the initial deposit?
