An STA Travel Mney Card offers many of the same features as a debit or credit card, but you can only spend the money that you have loaded onto it. This makes it a convenient alternative to carrying cash abroad, reduces the risk of your bank details being stolen and can be a more cost effective solution than debit or credit cards.
You can top up the funds in your eccount or on your card by bank transfer, with a credit or debit card and with cash at a post office or paypoint. You can also top up for FREE at all STA Travel stores in the UK*. Once you have funds in your eccount you can transfer them on and off your card. You can do this in the STA Travel App, online, by phone or by text.
You can check your balance in the STA Travel App, online, by calling the automated service or by text. You can also check your balance at UK ATMs**
You can earn up to 11%^ cashback with selected UK retailers by purchasing products in their shops.
