Currency Card charges & limits

What it costs

We do not charge a card fee but the Irish government charges annual stamp duty on prepaid card accounts at a rate of €0.12 for any ATM transaction in the Republic of Ireland, up to a total of €5.00.

The card is commission free for foreign-currency transactions. Point-of-sale and online transactions are also free when you have funds available in the currency in which they are made. Fixed fees are applied to ATM withdrawals.

There is a charge of 1.25% on euro currency purchases, top-ups and withdrawals at post offices, subject to a cap of €8.00 on withdrawals. Find out about other charges that might apply to your card.

What additional charges may apply to my card?

You will be charged a flat-rate ATM withdrawal fee. Some operators may also charge an additional fee. Depending on which currency you withdraw, the charges are as follows:

  • EUR€2.00

  • US$2.50

  • GB£1.50

  • AU$3.50

  • CA$3.25

  • ZAR20.00

  • TRY5.50

If a point-of-sale transaction or an ATM withdrawal is made in a currency on the card that does not have sufficient funds, the funds will be transferred from other wallets on the card in the following order of priority: Euros, Pound Sterling US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, Australian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, Emirati Dirhams, South African Rand, Swiss Francs, Turkish Lira, Mexican Pesos, Polish Zloty, Czech Koruna, Croatian Kuna, Swedish Krona and Japanese Yen.

Where the card is used in a country that operates in a currency other than that on the card or you don’t have enough balance on the card in the transaction currency and the balance is taken from another currency wallet, the transaction amount will be converted into the next available currency in the usual wallet order. The foreign exchange rate is the rate determined by Mastercard, plus a foreign exchange fee of 5.75%.
