Convenient gift-giving, travel and more.

Visa® prepaid cards make gift-giving, travel and everyday errands more convenient than ever before. As gifts, they're perfect for every occasion, including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and graduations. For travel, they're a convenient alternative to traveler's cheques. And they're great if you want the convenience a Visa debit card offers without a checking account.

Columbus Metro now offers three prepaid Visa cards to choose from: Gift, Reloadable and Travel. No matter which card you choose, you can use your card everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted and manage your account online at www.myprepaidbalance.com.
