Has anyone used this? Dh has just signed up. Apparently it's a currrency card which gives you the spot rate for fx purchases abroad and you can use it online

I've looked at it and it appears to be a bit like paypal. But with a card.

Anyone have any experiences?

I've got one and we've used it abroad twice.
It's very handy, we used it to pay for meals in euros, pay a deposit on a hotel room and to draw a small amount of cash out of an ATM.
You do get the spot rate on transfers (£ US$ and €) and it's easy to top up using the phone app.
The only time we had a problem with it is when the card wasn't recognized at a train station ticket machine in Switzerland but we were able to use the card in a cafe to pay in Swiss francs.
It's cheaper than using a debit card abroad and you can easily keep track of your spending, as you get a notification when you use it.

Good to know! Thanks.

I wasn't sure about it...

Make sure its validated before you go so you can top up.
