Why you should take a travel card

Multi-currency

Travel cards can be loaded with multiple currencies - great if you're travelling to different destinations in one trip.

Peace of mind

Receive global assistance for a replacement card or emergency cash if something happens to your card. You also won't have to worry about carrying around large sums of cash.

Track your spending

Easily view your travel card balance and transactions online or via text message to keep track of your holiday spending!

Why you should take some cash

Accepted (almost!) everywhere!

Cash is a global form of currency, and - depending on the type of currency - is accepted by almost everyone abroad as a form of payment. Certain overseas businesses may not have card facilities or accept certain types of cards, making cash the preferred form of payment; particularly for things like local markets, tipping and more remote locations.

Stopovers & cash-based societies

If you've got a stopover during a long haul flight, it's handy to have some cash in the local currency if you need to purchase anything from the airport. In addition, in certain countries such as Japan, cash is still king with many businesses not accepting cards.

No additional fees*

Once you've purchased your cash currency, you don't have to worry about any additional fees, making it a cost-effective way to exchange your Australian dollars.
