Prefer a travel money card?

Prefer not to carry cash while travelling? A prepaid travel card - like our Sainsbury's Bank Multi-currency Cash Passport™ MasterCard®^ - might be a better solution.

You can pre-load (and reload) it with up to 10 currencies, then use it like a normal bank card abroad. It works at cashpoints, in shops, and online.
