Carrying cash overseas can sometimes feel a little bit daunting. Being responsible for a large amount of foreign cash in an unfamiliar place can make the best of people feel uneasy and at times make it harder for you to relax. With the new Cash Passport from MasterCard, you don’t need to worry about travelling overseas with a large wad of cash. Just load your prepaid card up with the required amount and slip it into your wallet or purse. We would still advise getting a small amount of foreign currency.
