Post Office Money Card reviews (7)

Travel Card works, was accepted everywhere, but be aware - Very POOR exchange rates.

3
I needed a currency travel card quickly, as a system update had caused issues, with my usual provider, which I have used for years. I collected the card from my local post office, and topped it up with the MINIMUM 50 euros, as the exchange rate in branch was very poor. Their advertised rates on compare websites for ordering travel money was quite competitive, so thought I would top it up from their APP I had dowloaded, at a better rate. It took 24 hrs for the card to be activated, which was now the day before I travelled. But here's lies the bad news, and the reason for my 3 star review, the rates within the APP or the Travel Card website, are nowhere near the market rates, (and now you are locked in, no option - I'm sure thats the idea) And there are no better rates for the more you order, as with most companies, just one flat rate. The market when I travelled was around 1.13 (euros) with most companies, the APP was giving me just 1.10. and near the end of my holiday the rates had dropped to about 1.1259 my top ups were at 1.09. However, the card was accepted everywhere I went, restaurants, shops, car hire and even the Hotel. There were no horror stories to report (which I had read in advance) about the card not being accepted, it worked well, just be very AWARE you are being penalised on the rates.

Punishment for stolen money

1
I was in Slovakia when I found out money was stolen from my post office travel card. Unauthorized transaction from London Uber Eat. When I arrived back home to the UK, the post office travel card created such a situation where it is not possible to claim stolen money back. They ask tons of my documents and proves. When I sent them, they "couldn't open them" , asking me to resend those documents again and again. It looks they PUNISH people for THEIR failure to protect our money... Reviewed on: 11th June 2023
