A companion card is a second card on your account, similar to an additional cardholder on a credit card account except that you can control the spend and share between the cards.
Because you can have up to three currency cards, one in euros, one in dollars and one in sterling this means you can have up to three companion cards on your travel money account (a max of 2 cards per currency). To get a companion card, you need to be a UK resident aged 18 or over.
Having a companion card allows you to share money seamlessly and quickly between your main cards and your companion cards.
