The Benefits of Prepaid Cards When Travelling

Prepaid – or preloaded cards, as they are also known – are a great opportunity for fintechs that operate in the travel industry.


Companies want to keep an eye on how much their employees spend, what they spend on, as well keeping their finances secure if the card is lost or stolen.


The mass adoption of APIs in personal finance means that people now expect more in depth financial information.


The more budget conscious holiday makers want to do the same, but for themselves. This presents a business opportunity for card issuers in the travel industry. However, obtaining BIN numbers is notoriously difficult. This is where we come in, as your BIN sponsor.


Different needs, different cards
