Very useful Card
One card full solution. I have this POTM card and feeling almost relaxed of short of money as previously at many points.
What is to be taken care most is, must check either your required currency is listed in all thirteen exchangeable , rest everything is fantastic.
Very similar to credit card once receive ,normally delivered within 5 to 6 days with activation guidance.
This can be used almost very big part of world, so I can say this is very useful.
Trying to get this card, activate it, put money on it, etc. then trying to get a refund on money I had lost , was a shambles from start to finish and way more hassle than it is worth! I first got a the card from the post office easy enough, but then I had to ring the customer service, who told me they could not find my adress on their computer. Why do they need my adress? I also bought foreign currency from the P.O and they didn't need my adress to do that, but just having the same amount of money on a card they have to 'Verify' my adress? So after sending them an email with a photo of my passport and driving license, (which they did not reply to ) and after I had made a load of phonecalls to find out if they had received this, I was eventually able to put money on it. As soon as I arrived at hotel in Bangkok, and tryed to pay the bill with the P.O travel money card which had more than sufficient funds on it, their machine declined the card. The hotel told me there was an ATM round the corner. So I though that is my only option, and when I put the same card in the ATM it swallowed it and gave me a message like, 'Fault discovered, contact your card issuer'.
Not so easy when you're in Bangkok. After numerous unsuccessfull attempts to e-mail them about it, I then rang them from Bangkok which cost me about £15. After being held in a queue!!, I eventually spoke to someone who said they would refund it, and I asked her for an e-mail to confirm this. No such e-mail arrived, and I then e-mailed them about this. No reply! E-mailed them again, as I could not check my bank balance to check if they had paid it. Got a reply saying that it was being paid that day. Then I let it rest and just thought I'll have to check it when I get back to England.
NO APOLOGY from anyone. What a load of pointless hassle, before I went away and while I was away. You don't want stuff like this threatening to ruin your holiday. A few years earlier when I went to France, I had a completely hassle free experience with a Sainsbury's Travel Money Card
but sadly Sainsbury's only do US dollar or Euro, not Thai Baht which made me have to start my horrible expereince with the Post Office.

Travel money card
A ridiculous amount of hassle when I tried to activate and put money on the card, as they 'Could not find my adress on their computer'! After I eventually got over this hurdle by e-mailing them a photo of my passport and driving license, and put money on it, the card was declined in Thailand when I tried to pay my bill with it, then tried to use the card in a ATM, which swallowed it, giving me a message saying 'Fault Discovered, Contact Card Issuer'. Then tried to get a refund of the money on the card. Again ridiculous hassle trying to do this. Had to ring them from Thailand which cost me about £15, spoke to lady who said they would give me a refund, I then asked for an e-mail confirming this. No such e-mail arrived. After I had e-mailed them twice, I got a reply saying it had been paid. Everything about this experience was slow, difficuilt , problematic, and NO APOLOGY from anybody, which leads me to suspect that this type of service that I experienced, is standard procedure! Easier to just use ATM's with your own Visa Debit card, than to mess around with this.
