When you need card to secure a deposit, for example for a car hire or a hotel, use a credit or debit card. When this happens the merchant can block off money on your card for a period of 30 days, which means it will not be available to you for the rest of your trip. You can still use your FairFX Currency Card for the final bill and benefit from great rates!
You can easily check your balance on the website or our app.
You cannot use your card in North Korea or Iran where the card is blocked for use.
