The GCEN Global Travel Prepaid Currency Card

GCEN has established itself as a market leader in Foreign Currency Exchange. Our Prepaid currency cards can be used to buy goods and services at millions of global merchants that accept MasterCard cards and to withdraw local currency from more than one million ATM's worldwide. All of our currency cards are prepaid cards, so you know exactly how much they are spending when you are away from home.

Our Cards

The GCEN Prepaid Currency Card comes in three card options for you to choose from:

The GCEN Global Travel Prepaid Currency Card could be one of the best ways to carry Euros, US Dollars and Sterling. Use your Chip & PIN currency card to carry your holiday money, rather than carry large amounts of cash. Use ATMs to withdraw cash when you want, or use the Chip & PIN in outlets, where the MasterCard Acceptance Mark is displayed.


To apply for your GCEN Prepaid Currency Card, please click on the link below.


Using the GCEN Prepaid Currency Card, you will be able to get your currency at the same rates as our business customers, rather than the standard rates of exchange that you will find on the high street, or at the travel kiosks.

What about card security?

Our Euro, Dollar and Sterling cards give you better security than carrying cash, as we offer Chip and PIN security.

Where can I use my card?

All of our Prepaid Currency Cards are MasterCard cards and can be used anywhere the MasterCard Acceptance Mark is displayed including ATMs, shops, hotels and restaurants.

How do I Apply?

Simply apply online, and receive your card within 7-10 days. You can even buy currency online as soon as your account is setup.

How do I load my currency card?

When you get your card, you will be given an online username and password. You can then easily buy your Euros, Dollars and Sterling online, whenever you want. You can also buy currency with a bank transfer.
