Travelerís checks are obnoxious, tacky, and so easily forged that few places will still accept this archaic form of currency, so before you start your next excursion, pick up the Ultratravel Currency Card instead. Designed specifically to benefit the luxury traveler, customers can preload this card with either U.S. Dollars, Euros, or U.K. Sterling, and doing so will ensure the most favorable exchange rates.
The best part about this card is that itís a Visa, and therefore accepted basically everywhere. Should you find too many places to put it to use, it can easily be reloaded with a quick phone call or text to avoid any embarrassment at the registers. Since the card is loaded with specific currencies, it circumvents the superfluous charges applied to transactions made with credit or debit cards. Should you run into the need for discreet expenditures, the fixed rate of ATM withdrawals is a mere £1.50.
The UltraTravel Currency Card is safe to use, thanks to its built-in Chip and PIN technology, so lay to rest any worries about fraud abroad you may have. Online monitoring capabilities make this a great option for parents sending their children overseas to study as well.
The card can be applied for at Ultra.Travel, which doubles as a community for world travelers to share stories and find new destinations. Adding to the benefits provided by the site, the card rewards users with exclusive deals on luxury travel to places like London, Barbados, Bangkok and many, many more.
