TransferWise ‘s new Borderless Account comes with a free debit card that can be used worldwide. The advantage is that you can put different currencies on it and so you can pay anywhere in the world without exchange or payment costs. It really is a limitless debit card.
The card is linked to your TransferWise Account and/or app so that you can easily and cheaply put money on it. They are, as it were, currency trays from which you pay.

Depending on the base currency (from which you make the payment), you can do it via bank transfer, credit card, debit card, iDEAL, etc. The costs are minimal, as you see in the screenshots above. If you are going to travel to another country, you activate that currency and, for example, convert your Euros to that currency.
