Thomas Cook launches multi-currency card

Prepaid travel card allows for 10 currencies at once
Thomas Cook has launched a new prepaid travel card, which allows users to carry up to 10 different currencies at once.
Euros, dollars, the South African rand, Turkish lira and Swiss francs can all be added to the new product.
“People are increasingly using prepaid cards overseas for a variety of reasons,” Fraser Millar, head of financial services at the tour operator, said. “Some of our customers find it reassuring that they can’t drift into the red or go over-budget, while others are attracted to the security they offer.”
Millar added: “Cash passports aren’t linked to your bank account, so there is reduced risk associated with this form of travel money. By introducing multi-currency cash passports, we want to reduce the risk even further and alleviate any cause for concern while travelling.”
Thomas Cook will continue to top up single currency cards, but they are not available for purchase.
