Prepaid travel cards, depending on the provider, can come with different fees such as initial load fees, reload fees, ATM fees and inactivity fees. The TransferWise debit card allows you to add money to your card without fees by sending it through your bank.
Another difference is that prepaid travel cards might not be reliable for reservations like booking hotels, cars or cruises — or anything that requires a deposit. In addition to that, it can take from two to three business days for a transaction to a prepaid travel card to clear. The TransferWise debit card allows you to choose the method, and with that, the speed of how fast you need the money on your card.
Your card and activation instructions will arrive within 2 weeks of your order.
