    Good to know – which bits have a fee and what's free when using the Euro Card or the GBP Card

What is the AA Travel Currency Card?

The Euro Card and the GBP Card (sterling) are Prepaid Mastercard cards which provide a secure and convenient way to manage your money while abroad. The cards are available in sterling (worldwide card) and euro.

It's a simple way to use money abroad and can be easier to budget with than a debit or credit card. It's a convenient alternative to carrying large sums of cash or traveller's cheques.


What is a prepaid card?


You can use the AA Travel Currency Card wherever you see the Mastercard Acceptance Mark – at over 35 million locations worldwide, including 2 million cash machines.

What is an AA Travel Currency Card account?

A new online account is set up when you take out an AA Travel Currency card. It acts like a secure online wallet that holds your loaded funds safely and offers a range of convenient features to help you manage your money. Please note that this account may sometimes be referred to as an eccount.

Your AA Travel Currency Card eccount is an online account that allows you to manage your card in a way that works best for you. Funds loaded go directly on to your currency card for immediate use. Using 'Top-up settings' in the online servicing menu, you can change the way your funds are distributed between your eccount and card(s).


Note that the eccount facility can only hold funds in sterling. Therefore if you wish to move funds from your euro card back into your eccount, funds will be converted back to pounds sterling at that day's exchange rate.

Who provides the card?

AA旅行货币卡is offered by AA Financial Services and provided by Tuxedo Moneyplus Limited. Tuxedo is an approved Mastercard member service provider in the UK. The cards are issued by Wirecard Card Solutions Limited pursuant to licence by Mastercard International Incorporated.

Do I need to pass a credit check to get this card?

No, because this is a prepaid card, rather than a credit card.


We do have to verify your identity against the information you have provided. In most cases this verification will happen instantly, but in some cases we may need to ask you to send in documents that prove your identity.

Please allow 7 to 10 days for your card to arrive. If we need to ask for additional documents to prove your identity, it will take a little longer.

Why do I need a secret number?

You'll be asked to input a secret number during the application process. You'll need this number in order to activate your card and also if you forget your password. If you forget your secret number, please contact customer services on 0345 340 3177.

How do I activate my card?

During the call you'll be prompted through the activation process, and at the end given your PIN. Please memorise this PIN for future use.


You may wish to take out an additional card before you travel. This is a second card linked to the same account. You can keep your additional card in the safe in case you lose or have your main card stolen. It also gives you the option to share money between cards, with a family member or friend for example.

Additional cardholders must be UK residents who are aged 18 or over. Please note that in India, local laws mean that additional cards cannot be used for sharing money with a family member or friend.

There is an initial card issue fee of £9.95, valid for 3 years, but this is automatically refunded back on to your card balance if your first load is £100 or more. Your online servicing account is free to use.

What other card fees should I be aware of?

Please refer to the terms and conditions section about card fees.

Will I pay any fees if I do not use my AA Travel Currency Card?

How to top up your card

How do I top up my card?

There are many ways to top-up your card.

Faster Payments bank transfer

We recommend that you link your AA Travel Currency Card eccount to your personal bank account and do a bank transfer. This is free and you can load up to £2,000 in one transaction. If your bank uses Faster Payments, funds will be available on the next working day, otherwise it can take up to 3 working days.

Follow these simple steps to link your AA Travel Currency Card to your bank account. You'll only need to do this once, and then you'll be able to top up the money on your card easily when ever you want to.

  • 登录to the online servicing facility of your own personal bank account. Follow the instructions to set up a new payee. You'll need the following information to set up the account:
    • 帐户名:wdcs re tms gbp
    • Bank: Barclays Bank Plc
    • 9位数字帐号作为参考
  • 它可以在AA网站上自由充值。要进行转移,请登录在线维修并在“充值”选项卡下,请选择“查看银行转移详细信息”。如果您通过BACS加载,并且您的银行使用更快的付款,那么您的资金将在下一个工作日提供。
  • 使用您的借记卡(最大每日负载为750英镑)。
  • Top up at 12,000 Post Office branches nationwide (99p fee). Find your nearestPost Officebranch.
  • 或是地点。在近用现金充值22,000 terminals located in newsagents, convenience stores, supermarkets, garages and off-licences near to you (fee 3% of load value). Find aPayPoint在你旁边。
  • Remember to notify your bank that you're travelling abroad, especially if you plan to top–up your card using your debit card whilst you're away. For ease, you may prefer to top up via BACS as an alternative.
How long will my loaded funds take to clear?

When loading with a debit card for the first time, it can take up to 3 working days for the funds to clear on to your AA Travel Currency Card. However, all subsequent loads using the same debit card are immediate and will clear on the same day. If your bank uses Faster Payments, funds will be available the next working day.

Cash loads made at a Post Office will take 1 working day to clear, but PayPoint loads clear on the same day. The exchange rate you receive when loading your Euro Card will always be that of the day your funds clear on your card.

How do I change the way funds are distributed between my account and my card?
  1. 登录to online servicing.
  2. Enter your security information.
  3. Select the option called 'TOP-UP SETTINGS'.

How to withdraw cash and make purchases

Where can I withdraw cash?



No. You can only use an ATM.

Can I use my AA Travel Currency Card to make purchases?

Yes. You can use your card wherever you see the Mastercard Acceptance Mark, as long as you have sufficient funds on your card.

What is a pre-authorisation?

A pre-authorisation is carried out when a merchant reserves money on a card to ensure payment for their services. Places such as restaurants and hotels do this quite often. For example, a pub or restaurant may pre-authorise a set amount when you open a tab at the bar. If your final bill is less than the pre-authorised amount it may take up to 14 days for you to receive the balance as a refund into your eccount.

Can I use my AA Travel Currency Card to guarantee payments or make reservations?

If you are using your card for car hire, hotel reservations, general bookings or to guarantee a payment, the prepaid funds on your card will be pre-authorised and blocked for payment of the services that you request.

Some businesses – car hire and hotels in particular – may block more funds than you expect to use, and this will affect the available balance on your card. The blocked funds will not be available for you to use until the final bill has been settled and cleared via Mastercard. Usually the unspent amount is made available for use within a day or two of payment. However in some instances it can take up to 14 days for the transaction to be fully processed and for your card to be credited.

Are there any outlets where I may not be able to use my AA Travel Currency Card?

You may not be able to use your card if a retail outlet is unable to obtain authorisation for the amount you wish to spend. Your card may also not be accepted for the hire of a car. This may be due to the extended time period that can occur when a transaction is authorised and when money is deducted from your eccount. Alternatively, the difference can occur between the amount authorised and the amount subsequently claimed.

Can I use my AA Travel Currency Card to pay for fuel at automated pumps?

Unfortunately this is not available. It's possible to pay for fuel inside the petrol station kiosk if you see the Mastercard Acceptance Mark.

Can I use my AA Travel Currency Card to pay at toll roads abroad?

Not always – your card is a Mastercard card and should be accepted everywhere you see the Mastercard Acceptance Mark. However, some toll road payment kiosks are 'offline', meaning they cannot check that the card has the available funds before they allow you through the toll. As a result of this, they often choose not to accept prepaid cards.

What address should I give when I purchase goods online, by mail order or by phone?

The billing address should be the address registered by the primary cardholder, even if you're an authorised user.


A pending transaction (sometimes called 'outstanding authorisation') is a temporary charge held against your available funds. It relates to:

  • A transaction (purchase or cash withdrawal) you've made using your AA Travel Currency Card which has been authorised for payment, but has not yet reached your eccount.
  • 某些零售商要求的“保留”资金(例如,当您入住某些酒店时,他们将获得您的AA旅行卡详细信息的“授权交易”,以保留足够的资金来支付您的账单)。
  • A payment or cash withdrawal you've made to your eccount that has not yet cleared.
What happens to a pending transaction?


Do I need to do anything if I have a pending transaction on my eccount?

No. Having a pending transaction on your eccount is part of the process by which a purchase is charged to your eccount. However, if you think the pending transaction may relate to fraudulent use of your card, please contact us immediately.

How are my transactions authorised?

Retail outlets request authorisation via Mastercard. Tuxedo Money Plus Limited is linked to Mastercard via a processor which verifies that you have enough funds available on your AA Travel Currency Card. If approved, the money is paid to Mastercard from the card, for settlement to the merchant. If there are not enough funds on your card, the transaction will be declined. At all times, only you or a designated person can see the balance available on your eccount.

What if I want to cancel a transaction or card authorisation?

In circumstances where it is possible to cancel an authorised transaction, for instance a hotel reservation, you must allow up to 30 days for a refund if the transaction has been authorised. After this time a chargeback can be requested; proof of contact with the merchant is normally required. In the meantime you won't be able to use that money for other transactions.


Transactions can be declined if the retailer can't verify online that there are enough funds in your eccount to cover the value of the transaction you are making, including any applicable charges.

How can I have the balance on my eccount refunded to me?

Once you have been on your holiday, you have the option to leave any remaining funds on the card to wait until you next travel (the card is valid for 36 months). Alternatively, you could use one of the following methods to withdraw your money.

  • You can spend any remaining balance in any shops which accept Mastercard cards. There is no charge for using your card for UK retail transactions (e.g. in shops or restaurants).
  • 您可以从接受万事达卡卡的ATM中提取现金,但是,根据您的余额,您可能无法一口气提取所有费用。英镑卡上的提款费为1.50英镑,在英国的ATM交易欧元卡上的提款费为1.50欧元。如果您有欧元卡并想从英国ATM机器中撤回Sterling,则您的提款将以当天已发表的外汇转换率从欧元转换为斯特林。
  • If you prefer to withdraw all of the money in one lump sum, you can phone customer services and arrange for the money to be refunded to your bank account. Please note that there is a £10 redemption administration fee charged for returning your balance to your bank account. You can then still choose to retain your AA Travel Currency Card for future use because it is valid for 36 months. To contact customer services, please call 0345 340 3177, choose option 9 to speak to a customer adviser (lines are open Monday to Friday 9am to 6pm, excluding bank holidays).
Can I order an additional card?

Yes. Just log in and go to the 'Your Account' tab, then select the 'Add Card' button. You'll be offered a choice of keeping the eccount or card balance to yourself, or sharing it with the new cardholder.

There is a fee for an additional card – please see the fees table in the terms and conditions for exact charge. It is possible to have up to two additional cards in different names, but it is also possible to order a second card in the name of the main card holder. This second card can be activated in case of the main card being lost or stolen.
