Thomas Cook Currency Card Advice Apr 06, 2010
I have recently returned from Egypt after spending three weeks there booked through Thomas Cook. Thomas Cook were keen to promote a Currency Card which was similar to a bank card but holds foreign currency ie. dollars/ sterling/ euros. You get a PIN number and can use it as a bank card or in an ATM. The problem is that you cannot use it in the Thomas Cook Financial Services office on Peace Road in Sharm. Despite it being from their own company the office would not allow me to take out my own money over the counter and for a very simple reason. The cards are issued over the counter in your local travel agency and therefore does not have my name printed on it anywhere and even when i produce ID to prove who i am they still would not allow me to use it. Therefore you cannot use a Thomas Cook Currency Card in a Thomas Cook office in Sharm in Egypt. I can foresee the same problems arising all over the world.
