The Travelex Cash Passport multi-currency card has a range of competitive features, including a $0 purchase fee, no reload fees for adding more to your balance and a fairly standard overseas ATM withdrawal fee of 2.95%.
You'll have the choice of 10 currencies. But keep in mind that if you do spend with a currency that you haven't loaded onto the card, you'll be charged a 5.95% cross currency conversion fee.
If your prepaid card is lost or stolen while you are travelling there is no fee for replacing the Cash Passport card. You will also get support services for while you're away including a legal and interpreter service, send a message home service and emergency cash via money transfers.
Who it's good for:
The Travelex Cash Passport is one of the only prepaid cards with no cross currency conversion fee at all, so it would suit those who are planning to spend with currencies that aren't loaded onto the card.
For the big spenders, the Travelex Cash Passport card has a load limit of $100,000, more than any other prepaid card.
The Travelex Cash Passport can be purchased at a variety of places such as Australia Post as well as Travelex Stores and Travel Agents. They may offer different exchange rates so check which rates you'll get before you get the card.
And budget accordingly, if you come home with funds still on the prepaid card and want to close the account, you'll pay a $10 close fee.
