TravelMoney Promotion Offers Implementation Fee Waiver for Credit Unions

Thu, Jul 28, 2016

Columbia, Maryland

Take part in a special promotion available to credit unions who are $50 million or greater in asset size. Now through July 31, when your credit union signs up for TravelMoney and orders at least 40 cards, LSC will waive the $500 implementation fee. 

TravelMoney is a prepaid card that members of your credit union can purchase and load with money for use on their vacation. The card replaces traditional travelers checks as a safer spending alternative when on summer vacations and general travel.


The solution to your Members’ Travel Needs

As an agent program, LSC has set all the fees on the card and will assume all the fraud risk associated with the program. There is no credit union liability and no credit union fraud exposure.

With the Visa TravelMoney Program, your credit union will be able to earn additional revenue by charging a retail fee for issuing the card.

Custom programs are also available where your credit union would take on the fraud risk, determine any fees to charge your members and earn the interchange income.
