1 in 3 suffer post-holiday shock from unexpected charges abroad

The latest consumer research from leading payments innovator, Ukash, has revealed the post-holiday shock of spending abroad. Despite nearly a quarter of consumers admitting that they do not worry about potential charges when they are enjoying their time away, this is certainly not the case when it comes to facing reality on the return home.  One in three said they are left shocked when they open their post-holiday bank statement.

The new Ukash Travel Money Prepaid MasterCard helps holidaymakers avoid being stung by charges when they are abroad. With no ATM fees and unbeatable rates, the Ukash Travel Money card definitively offers the best way to make holiday money go further in Europe and the USA eliminating the risk of returning home to bill-shock.

“Holidaymakers should be able to relax in the knowledge that they are getting the very best value on their hard earned money when they are away”, explained David Hunter, Chief Executive of Ukash. “Our research has found that nearly 40% of consumers do not even check the details of charges for using their debit cards abroad and almost a quarter are unaware of the costs of withdrawing cash from ATMs while abroad.”
