‘More Fun’ Prepaid Card Helps Tourists to the Philippines Shop with Ease

‘More Fun’ Prepaid Card Helps Tourists to the Philippines Shop with Ease

August 20, 2013         Written By Bill Hardekopf

Late last year, the Bank of the Philippines and the Department of Tourism teamed up to create the More Fun Prepaid Card. This card is designed to improve the shopping experiences of tourists in the Philippines by minimizing interest rates and balance requirements. Now that the card has been out for a few months, users are starting to see the benefits they get while travelling on the islands. This card is trying to live up to its name.

The More Fun card has no interest rate or minimum balance requirement, and people as young as ten years old can start using one. This is beneficial for families travelling to the Philippines because children can use the cards instead of cash. Each card is customizable, so you can put family photos on them or select from one of the designs available to you. You can also add a slogan to the card if you wish, like “eating, more fun in the Philippines.” The card is reloadable and can be used anywhere Visa cards are accepted, making it an easy solution for any vacation.

The More Fun card can also be used beyond travels to the Philippines–it can be used to buy Filipino products online. If you have been thinking about taking a trip to the Philippines in the next few months, you may consider loading your cash onto a card like this. It’s affordable, convenient, and easy to get.
