We’ve calculated the below charges based on an example family holiday in the US using the pound to dollar exchange rate

How Currensea compares on a family holiday to the US
  • The family arrives at the airport in Florida on Saturday
  • They take out $250 worth of travel money at an ATM before checking into their hotel that day
  • They go for dinner on Saturday and Sunday evening
  • During the week, they enjoy various activities and have to visit an ATM one more time to withdraw an additional $250
  • They check out of their hotel on Saturday a week later. The total bill for their holiday was $5,000
Out of the total, they paid $4,500 by card and $500 in cash.
How much would they have paid in international charges if they didn't use a Currensea card?
