Single currency card
Your PostFX Prepaid MasterCard® single currency card allows you to put one of the four following foreign currencies onto a foreign exchange card:
US dollars (USD)
Canadian dollars (CAD)
Australian dollars (AUD)
The single currency card is no longer for sale and has been replaced by the more flexible An Post Money Currency Card
, which allows you to have up to 10 currencies on your card at any one time.
If you have a single currency card, you can choose one of the following options:
Swap your card
To swap your single currency card for a new An Post Money Currency Card
, just bring your existing card along with proof of name and address to any participating post office
(PDF, 433KB), complete the application form and we will complete the swap for you.
We will also transfer any balance from the old card to your new one. So if you have $100 on your old card, you can swap it for $100 on your new card.
Top up online
Although we no longer sell single currency cards, you can continue to top up
and use your existing card until it expires. You can top up online or at any participating post office. To top up online, you need to:
- Enter the 16-digit card number
- Enter your details
- Choose the amount to top up
- Pay using your debit card
Once payment is successful you will be issued with a receipt for your top-up.
You can also withdraw any cash remaining on your card, in euro, at the post office. You will need identification, such as a passport or EU driving licence, to cash out amounts over €500.
You can check your balance online
or at a participating post office. You can also get your balance over the phone by calling:
- 1 800 535 564 from the Republic of Ireland
- 44 207 649 9404 from all other countries
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.
You may also be charged an inactivity fee of €2.50 per month, up to a maximum of €5.00, if you have not had any top ups, transactions or withdrawals on your card after 15 months. If there is no balance on your card, no fee will apply.
