    Saving money and the planet

    Currensea - the card that saves you money on spending abroad whilst also helping the planet

    Currensea
    11 days ago

    Currensea is the UK’s first Direct Debit Travel Card, linked to your existing bank account and saving you at least 85% on every foreign transaction. There is no need to open a new bank account, prepay or pre-load your card – your bank account is only debited after you have spent.
    And because this carbon-neutral company knows that many silver travellers wish to offset the impact of their travel, users can contribute a percentage of their savings to removing ocean plastic or planting trees. At the last count, Currensea had planted over 50,000 trees and recovered 260,000 ocean-bound plastic bottles.
