6 min read Aug 7, 2023


Premier League Football is coming back with another season. Kick-off is just around the corner! It is not just Manchester City fans who are gearing up to defend the championship. Fans across the globe are gearing up to witness the excitement, drama and passion of football at its best. Hope your travel bags are ready too, with the jersey of your favourite team packed in!

Catching a live game is a different experience altogether. Imagine being able to catch Haaland or Salah live in action! If you have booked your tickets and paid for accommodation, all you need is an Axis Bank Forex Card to help you on your trip to England. 

Tips to get the most out of your Forex Card

Convenient and secure transactions

While travelling, having a reliable and secure card is essential. Forex Cards provide an easy way to carry different currencies in a single card. These cards ensure secure transactions with the latest chip and PIN technologies. It’s safer than carrying cash currency in your wallet, especially when wading through thousands of fans to make it to the best seats.

Wide acceptance

During travels, you may come across remote locations with limited payment options and sporadic connectivity. The last thing you want is to be stuck in the middle of nowhere with a card nobody accepts.

Axis Bank Travel Forex Card is accepted widely across the world. Whether purchasing tickets for the London derby or having a spirited discussion over a pint of lager, you can use the card without any hassle. These cards are accepted at millions of merchant establishments and ATMs worldwide, providing the convenience of cashless transactions wherever you go. Additionally, the card can be used for last minute shopping at the Duty Free outlets at the airport.

Competitive exchange rates

If you’ve ever had to exchange money at the airport, you will feel the pain of differing exchange rates. Multi-currency Forex Cards offer competitive exchange rates, which means you get more value for your money. 

Discounts and deals

Axis Bank Forex Card offers additional benefits. For instance, since you are travelling to UK, get a voucher for a 10% VIP discount at the Bicester Village Shopping Outlet in London.

Emergency assistance

Travel uncertainties can arise anytime, and it is crucial to have the necessary support when you need it the most. The last thing you would want is to make it to Manchester and not be able to make it to the iconic Old Trafford for kickoff. That might just make you see red for the wrong reasons. 

Forex Cards come with dedicated customer support and emergency assistance services. If your card gets stuck in the middle of your vacation, you can call up the bank support line, and get an immediate resolution. 

In case your card is lost or stolen, you can immediately request a card block. If you need a replacement card or emergency cash assistance, the service provider will help you out with that too.

Easy tracking and reloading

While you are busy following your team, taking care of your money or worrying about how to spend safely should be the last thing on your mind. That is why Forex Cards are best way to manage your finances. These cards provide online access, allowing you to track your expenses, check your balance and reload your card from anywhere in the world.
