Travelex prepaid card named Best Consumer Card Program
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (3/28/08)--The Travelex Visa TravelMoney prepaid card was named the "Best Consumer Card Program" March 7 at a Paybefore Awards Gala during the Prepaid Card Expo in Las Vegas. Travelex has a strategic alliance with CUNA Strategic Services and offers prepaid gift cards and the Visa TravelMoney card to credit unions. The TravelMoney card is used by leisure travelers, but businesses are beginning to adopt it as a tool to fund overseas staff expenses. The card was launched in 2004 in the U.S. More than 160,000 cards worth $150 million were purchased last year. The company expects to issue 500,000 cards in 2008.
