Cash Passport Platinum Prepaid Currency Card Review

Rates and fees information correct as at 20 October 2018.

Review published: 23 November 2015

What's hot:

  • Free Global Wi-Fi at millions of Boingo hotspots

  • 0% cross currency conversion fee

What's not:

  • $10 fee to close the card

Mozo snapshot:

With no online purchase fee and $0 reload fees, the Cash Passport Platinum Mastercard can definitely be dubbed a great value prepaid travel card. You can load up to 11 currencies onto the card and even if you pay with a currency that isn't on the card, there's no need to worry, as there's no cross currency conversion fees.

Plus, you can get free Wifi at millions of Boingo hotspots around the world and a flight delay pass that allows you to relax in an airport lounge if your flight is delayed.

Key features:

The Cash Passport Platinum Mastercard is packed with a great range of travel friendly features. To start off with, it's got no purchase fee online, no reload fee for when you need a cash top up on your card and your choice of loading up to 11 currencies.

The Cash Passport Platinum Mastercard is accepted all around the world, wherever MasterCard is, plus you'll have the peace of mind of MasterCard's zero liability policy (perfect for that mega round the world trip!)

Another perk is that unlike other prepaid cards that'll charge you around 3% for paying with a currency that isn't loaded onto the card, the Cash Passport Platinum Mastercard comes with a 0% cross currency conversion fee.

But that's not all - there are other perks to registering your new card, including free global WiFi and a complimentary pass to LoungeKey lounges and restaurants if your flight is delayed. What's not to like?        

The Cash Passport has a minimum load amount of $100 and those big spenders out there will be happy to hear you can load anything from $100AUD up to a whopping $100,000AUD.

One thing to keep in mind that there is a fairly standard 2.95% withdrawal fee if you take out money from an ATM in Australia, and fees for overseas ATMs depending on the country.

Who it's good for:

The Cash Passport Platinum Mastercard is the perfect travel companion for anyone who wants the security of locking in their rate on a prepaid card, free of the bite of high load fees. Not to mention, it's also a tempting offering for any one who appreciates a few freebies and premium perks!

Any catches?

Keep in mind if you want to cancel the card, a $10 closure fee applies and you might want to think about getting your card online, to avoid the fee for buying it in-store (1.1% of the load/reload amount or $15, whichever is larger).
