Now here's a card design that would look good in my pocket. The OneBanking Prepaid MasterCard is available with an excellent banking facility. This is open to everyone* and there are no credit checks. There is a vast array of options available to reload your card and local currency POS and ATM transactions are absolutely free.
You cannot actually get the OneBanking prepaid MasterCard card without opening a OneBanking Account. There is no account opening fee but there is a monthly account fee of £12.50 for a single card account or £17.50 for a dual card account; peanuts if you wish to benefit from the full range of services offered by the banking facility and the prepaid card but expensive if you are looking for a prepaid card only solution.

What OneBanking Cardholders say...

  • I found out about ukash through the money saving expert websitevand it is truly great for when travelling in Europe. I got the euro pre-paid travel mastercard, which you get for free and no charge for delivery. It says on the website 5-7 days for delivery and I got mine in 5 days exactly. So simple to register the card and you get the PIN immediately via text, so you can use straight away. You use it just like you would your own card but no charges for using abroad and was by far the best rate I could find when I was topping it up with euros. Easy to top up and view your balance using an online account and secure as anytime an important transaction was made you get an email. Couldn't recommend this any more!!

    Emma

  • I decided to get a Ukash card as my son was off to the USA on a school trip and I didn't want him taking money or travellers' cheques. It tuned out to be a great decision as he lost cash but fortunately not the card so he still had a good time.

    Richard

  • Having read the positive reviews about the Ukash Travel Money Card, I decided to give it a go and I am now very happy I did. The exchange rates are fantastic and good value for money. The website was very simple to use and I got my card within 5 days. I will tell all my family and friends about Ukash.

    Joy

  • Not usually one to leave reviews, however this product was really useful. Used it to exchange some Euros for a short trip and was cheaper than the airport. Also didnt incur any charges while out there.

    Ben Gough

  • Trouble free, decent telephone support. Have used the card without problems.

    James Cummins

  • Been using them for some time now and I've been pretty happy with the transaction process thus far. Some ecommerce store only accept them instead of Paypal especially stores from the Asia region. Verification can take some time but since it's for our own protection, I guess it's acceptable.

    James Darronte

  • Have been using for a month to pay online stores that do not accept paypal. Fairly good security/verification processes leave me feeling confident my finances are secure.

    Mark Hewetson

  • So far it was the best and easiest way for me to make online transactions and payments. I ditched paypal and alertpay, cause there were too much hustle and online policies, which ruined online shopping, at least for me.

    Bosica

  • I've used the T24 BlackCard for about two years now, and I recommend it to friends and clients whenever I can. It's easy to use and they've got extremely forthcoming and personal service. My firm has chosen to implement the card as part of our partner packages as the obvious way of managing our payrolls and travel expenses.

    Michael Philips

  • My experience using T24 BlackCard could not be better. It is secure, worldwide accepted and high available. But what is exceptional is the support provided by the T24 Black Card Team. I feel myself a premium customer. I recommend it.

    Christoph Schulz

  • I chose Pockit because it is easy and safe to use both online and in-store, since you can only spend what is available on the card you can really manage your money. The cashback offers are an additional benefit!

    Maurice, Kilmarnock

  • We use the Pockit Prepaid Card for all our household expenses as it is easy to keep track of what is being spent. We try and use it at participating retailers as much as possible so we save on a weekly basis

    Vaneesha, London

  • The card works great, I’ve mainly been using it for the cashback deals, I buy as much as I can from M&S instead of other places. I have found it so easy to setup and use. I remind myself of where I can save by looking on the website every so often

    Meheen, London

  • Just wanted to say what a fab idea this is, I can now have the convenience of using a card when I have funds – it’s brilliant. Thank you.

    Janice, Worcester

  • I really like my Pockit card, it rewards me for doing my shopping at places like M&S and Halfords

    Sue, Chichester

  • Great features, looks and feels great to use compared to most banking apps

    Brian Crook

  • Easy to use. Easy to transfer funds from my bank to the card. Notifications are good. All round good app. Thanks.

    Adrian Stainton

  • Really quick to use - I can load my card in the queue for train tickets!! It makes keeping track of my spending dead simple.

    Anon

  • Downloaded the app, added a card and loaded money all in one breath... no hassle. Even logged in online to make sure everything was ok... and it was! As a frequent Orange Cash user this app is PERFECT.

    Marie Davis

  • Being an Orange card heavy user this app is a god send! Very simple and easy to use...immediate money upload too. Just what this excellent card needed to compliment it.

    Peter Butterworth

  • So far so good! Easy to access my account on line, or check the balance at the ATM ecept the nearest local one which is visa and link only! Able to add standing orders to companies at my convienience, make transferrs or use the card as a debit card. Follow up has also been good with a couple of calls to make sure I'm happy with the service and am able to gain access without problems. Much more helpful than my previous TSB bank who I'd been with from childhood....I'm now 55. I've never done internet Banking til I started with Clearcash... They made the transition so easy.

    Anon

  • I have had troubles in getting a bank in the high street, and going through troubles with my debt i was left in disarray with my finances! i found that no high street would touch me with my awful credit rating.. yet when i stumbled upon Clearcash i found it was the thing i was waiting sooo long for! they gave me instant approval and no credit checks, i now have my very little salary paid in (lol) and have child benefits etc put in.. very happy with all at clearcash! best thing is they have an account called Pay monthly, this is helping my credit rating get boosted :) yaaay! 10/10

    Joethedon1958

  • I have had a ClearCash card for a few years now and recently received an email saying they are changing the service. They are now utilising Cashplus who are quite a large outfit but the card is still ClearCash. Simple process to transfer and ClearCash call centre there to help. Cashplus customer service wasnt as good - but answered my queries. Got lots of confidence with ClearCash, unlike others, they listen to your feedback! Now got my own account number and sort code which is really helpful too!
