Following agreement with Postmasters, An Post recently announced a new vision for its Post Office network, including handy, new, good-value Financial Services for all customers.  

In five Post Offices across Leitrim, customers can now access An Post’s commission-free Foreign Exchange cash and PostFX cards, making it cheaper, safer and easier to carry holiday spending money in US, Australian or Canadian Dollars, or UK Sterling.

In a recent customer survey, Post Office customers ranked the most important features of Post FX currency cards as being:

·         Safer to carry than cash, thanks to the chip & pin feature

·         Cheaper to use for payments abroad than a credit or debit card.

·         Commission-free with no hidden charges.

·         Peace-of-mind – you can only spend the amount loaded in advance on the card.

·         Security – It’s not linked to your bank account or personal details.

Other Post FX features include online top-up; using a second Post FX as a  back-up card in case of loss or theft and 24/7 customer service, 365 days a year, anywhere in the world.

The card is available at the post offices in Carrick-on-Shannon, Ballinamore, Drumshanbo, Manorhamilton and Mohill.
