About Currency Card 

The Arion Currency Card is a prepaid international VISA payment card, issued in Króna (ISK) which entitles you to make purchases anywhere in the world where VISA cards are accepted as a means of payment. The Currency Card can be used for online  purchases as well. The value of the Currency Card is limited to the Króna (ISK) amount of the original deposit. 

When the Currency Card is used to make payments in currencies other than the Króna (ISK), the foreign exchange rates of Arion Bank apply. The exchange rates can be found here

The minimum amount you can put on the card is ISK 20,000 and the maximum amount is ISK 300,000. The Currency Card is not re-loadable. You can redeem the balance of your Currency Card at any time at a branch of Arion Bank. 

For any further information about your Currency Card call +354 444 7000 or contact us by e-mail
