AUD, USD, NZD, EUR, GBP, SGD, HKD, JPY, CAD, THB, ZAR
The St. George Global Currency Card is available for use in more than 180 countries. There are 11 currencies you can choose from, and you’ll be able to separate your balance into a maximum of 5 wallets, each containing a single currency. That means that you can have up to 4 foreign currency wallets along with your Australian Currency Wallet.
With the St. George Global Currency Card, you’ll be able to load up to 5 wallets with your choice of 11 currencies (AUD, EUR, GBP, USD, JPY, NZD, ZAR, THB, HKD, CAD, SGD). You won’t have to deal with any fees during the load or reload process, and you’ll also have the benefit of locking in an exchange rate once you come across one you’re happy with.
While the card comes with a foreign exchange fee of 3%, this is only charged when transacting in a currency other than the one loaded on your card, so if you’ve filled the wallets with the right currencies, you should have nothing to worry about.
When it comes to managing your card, the St. George Global Currency Card app is a must. You’ll be able to check your balance, transfer between currencies, and receive push notifications each time a transaction is made.
And if your card is lost, damaged or has fallen into the wrong hands, a complimentary back-up card (with a separate card number and PIN) means you won’t find yourself without funds. Simply cancel your primary card via the app and start using the back-up card instead.
There are no fees when withdrawing from a St.George, Westpac, Bank of Melbourne or BankSA branded ATM while in Australia. When overseas, keep an eye out for Global Alliance Partners’ ATMs, which are available for use, fee-free.
St. George customers who are preparing for overseas travel would do well to have this card, especially if their itinerary includes travel across multiple continents.
If you’re holidaying in the US or UK, just remember that there will be a small fee if you use a non-Global Alliance Partner ATM.
There is also a minimum load amount of AUD 100 and a maximum daily load amount of AUD 25,000. At any given moment, your balance on the card cannot exceed AUD 50,000 or the equivalent in foreign currency.
