Your travel wallet

Buy foreign currency on your app, then pay for ice cream on your card

Create a travel wallet in your Barclays app and use your debit card to make payments and withdraw cash in US Dollar or Euros without any bank charges. You can also receive notifications so you can stay on top your travel spending.

Why should I use a travel wallet?

Use your debit card abroad

Your travel wallet is better than most other travel money cards as you can spend directly from your debit card, whether you’re spending Euros or US Dollars.

No transaction fees

You can make purchases and withdraw money abroad for free1

Get your exchange rate before going abroad

When you buy currency through your travel wallet you buy it at a fixed rate. This means you don’t need to worry about fluctuating exchange rates. If you’re running low, you can top up your currency at any time.

Stay on top of your money

You can quickly check your balance and see your transactions in your app. You can also set up notifications every time your card is used.

Keep the change or change it back

Exchange your remaining travel wallet balance back to British pounds and move it back into your current account. Or, you can keep the spare currency for your next trip.

Spending abroad is simple with a travel wallet
