My Travel card is loaded in USD and issued in India. Currently I am out of India and want to transfer the USD from travel card to my Indian bank account.

I almost tried all money transfer sites like Ria, Xoom, TransFast but all sites require a credit card issued in US for transferring USD. Is there a work around or way to transfer this dollars to Indian bank account through some websites or services like prepaid wallets/gift cards?

I didn't try PayPal since it charges huge fees.

    Read the terms by your Travel Card issuer. Travel Card cannot be used to transfer USD to an Indian Bank Account. You have to spend outside India and if there is a balance you have to request the card issuers in writing for a refund. – Dheer Aug 29 '15 at 3:11

  • I am also facing same problem. There is no way to transfer Money from USD travel Card to your Indian Account. Just Withdraw money from ATM and send it thru Western Union/Money-gram. But it will cost you lot. ATM Charges, VISA/Master Card Fee, Western Union Charges etc. If you found something then let me know.. – Pushkar Sep 3 '15 at 2:59
