Last Valentine's Day Cupid bestowed a staggering £334.3m price tag on romance, yet over one third claimed to be unhappy with their gifts. Despite 50% citing a romantic getaway as the most desired gift, a disappointed 85% have never been taken away suggesting it's time for loved-up Brits to forgo the predictable roses and put the money towards a romantic mini-break abroad.
As the 14th February fast approaches, those taking that special person to one of the world's most romantic cities should remember to sort their currency in advance, so that once they arrive in the land of love, they are free to devote the weekend to their companion.
Whether they're splashing out on Champagne and truffles in Paris, wining and dining in Rome, or even buying a diamond in Antwerp, couples could take a my Travel Cash prepaid MasterCard currency card rather than wads of cash. my Travel Cash recently introduced two new benefits - no ATM withdrawal fees* and 1% cash back on all purchases, allowing travellers to withdraw money and make purchases with little worry of incurring unnecessary fees, not to mention the potential cash back that would be earned on everything spent - whether it's a fancy meal for two, or even a coveted diamond ring.
Myles Stephenson, CEO of my Travel Cash says: "Valentine's Day is a great opportunity for couples to get away for a short break to Europe. There are some great deals on weekend trips to Bruges, Paris, Rome, as well as Florence and Nice, and sorting the travel money beforehand means couples can spend more time relaxing and enjoying themselves, as well as benefitting from the savings that can be made. Who knows - maybe those extra savings could even go toward a diamond ring, or at least make the purchase of one a bit more attractive in light of the cash back rewards!"
