Prepaid cards can come in handy for a lot of reasons. You may be worried about spending too much, you may not want or be able to get a bank account but still need a card, or you may simply be looking for a travel card that doesn't rely on credit.

Whatever your reason, if you need such a card you may want to take a look at this year's victorious prepaid cards and see if you can get yourself some star-rated plastic. Moneyfacts experts have analysed the most relevant features to those looking for a prepaid card, judging access, flexibility and card charges, among other things.

Those products that are deemed this year's 'best-in-class' have received a Star Rating of five or four, with both everyday prepaid cards and travel cards scrutinised extensively. That's why you can be confident that the cards featured in the tables below will offer you true value, which leaves you with a much more manageable list of prepaid deals to choose between.

"Whether you are looking to manage your finances better or add an extra layer of security when travelling, choosing the right prepaid card can be a challenging task," commented Samantha Owens, Insight Manager at Moneyfacts. "Weighing up the fees and charges against the benefits can be confusing, but the Moneyfacts Prepaid Card Star Ratings allow the customer to focus their attention on the card that suits them the most in terms of functionality, benefits and the range of fees."
