Would not give us online rate for euros at shop as we only wanted £600 worth of euros they said had to get £1000’s worth before you get online rate so said no thanks, went to a travel agent and they matched Ramsdens online rate no problem, so won’t bother with Ramsdens again !!!!

Terrible value. Exchanged 260 euros today for £217.40. My mistake ! Have now realised I could have got more in many other stores. Do not exchange money back in these stores. Shop around !

Terrible experience. Put £200 on card but couldn't login to check balance. Rang up to explain which turned out to be a third party who couldn't help, but said they would refer it back to Ramsdens. Haven't heard anything back. Hopefully there will not be much on the card so I won't loose much. Have now gone with Revolut which lets you know immediately the card has been used with balance. Avoid Ramsdens like the plague.

  • I ordered a prepaid Euro card
  • Reloading the card was easy
  • The card was accepted everywhere that I used it
  • I would not recommend Ramsdens to others
