What are the benefits?
The Endsleigh Travel Card is a tool to help you stay in control of your finances on holiday, by controlling the amount you pre-load onto the card and helping you manage your budget. You can keep a track of your spending via SMS balance enquiries or reviewing your transactions online. You can also determine the cost of your overseas transactions before you purchase via the complimentary exchange rate tool that comes with the card that can be accessed via SMS or online.
The Endsleigh Travel Card could also help reduce fraud – if your card is lost or stolen whilst abroad thieves won’t have access to your bank account or credit card details. You can block your card online, via SMS or phone if it’s lost or stolen.
The Endsleigh Prepaid MasterCard, operates in a similar way to a credit or debit card. Using this card will provide you with the ability to purchase products and services in both the UK and worldwide. Although prepaid cards are not covered under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the monies you deposit with Newcastle Building Society to fund your Endsleigh prepaid card are conveniently held in trust in a separate Client Funds bank account, and are therefore protected should they face insolvency.
The card has been set up with two key programmes; each offering a wide range of benefits depending upon your circumstances:
