AN Post has made it cheaper, safer and easier to carry holiday spending money in dollars and sterling with their commission-free Foreign Exchange cash and PostFX cards that are available from 35 Limerick post offices.

The card is available at the post offices in Edward Street, Galvone, Garryowen, Lower Cecil Street, Bridge Street, Henry Street, Upper William Street (Limerick City), Abbeyfeale, Askeaton, Ballylanders, Bruff, Caherconlish, Cappamore, Castleconnell, Croom, Doon, Foynes, Glin, Hospital, Kilfinane, Kilmallock, Lisnagry, Mungret, Patrickswell, Rathkeale, Thomondgate, Adare, Ardnacrusha, Ballynantybeg, Broadford, Caherdavin, Castletroy, Dooradoyle, Newcastle West and Newport.

Post Office customers ranked the most important features of the currency cards as being: Safer to carry than cash, thanks to the chip & pin feature; Cheaper to use for payments abroad than a credit or debit card; Commission-free with no hidden charges; Peace-of-mind – you can only spend the amount loaded in advance on the card; Security – It’s not linked to your bank account or personal details.

Other Post FX features include online top-up; using a second Post FX as a  back-up card in case of loss or theft and 24/7 customer service, 365 days a year, anywhere in the world.

Debbie Byrne, Managing Director of An Post Retail, said the survey confirmed customers concerns about security and safety for their holiday spending money.

“While some cash is handy, a PostFX currency card guarantees financial security and convenience throughout your trip – without the hefty transaction or ATM fees payable on regular debit or credit card transactions abroad,” she added.
