Key features

You can load up to 10 international currencies on your card simultaneously. Each top up must be a minimum of AU$100 or AU$50 online (or the equivalent international currency). 

There is no initial purchase or top up fee online, however an in-store a fee of 1.1% of the initial top up amount of AU$15.00 (whichever is greater) will apply.

Those who reload their card through a BPAY transaction may attract a fee of 1% of the top-up amount. (This fee only occurs when not loading via the website or app). 

Luckily, there is no fee when transferring from currency to currency. The exchange rate will differ and is up to Travelex’s consideration (although it is based on the applicable market rate). 

The Travelex Money Card does not charge you ATM withdrawal fees, however if the ATM provider charges a usage fee, then you’ll likely have to pay that – there’s just no fee coming directly from Travelex. But keep in mind that if you have insufficient funds to withdraw cash from in the relevant currency, a ‘Spend rate’ conversion fee may apply (see the Travelex PDS for more information). 

There’s no fee applied when you make EFTPOS payments with your card overseas, which is a bonus. 

Another bonus is complimentary access to Boingo WiFi hotspots in millions of locations around the globe. 

The Travelex app can also give customers access to their balances across various currencies, as well as top up their Money cards with 10 available currencies (Euros, British pounds, New Zealand dollars, US dollars, Canadian dollars, Singapore dollars, Japanese yen, Hong Kong dollars, Thai baht, Australian dollars).

Who is it good for

With the ability to load up to 10 currencies at the same time, this card is good for those who are constantly on the move. 

Besides that, the integration with the Travelex Money app makes it convenient (not to mention affordable) for savvy travellers to quickly make sure they’ve got the right funds available, or top up when necessary. 

The ability to lock in an exchange rate may also be an attractive feature. 

The lack of fees also makes it a travel money card to consider for those with travel budgets in mind.
