Mozo snapshot:

The Velocity Frequent Flyer Global Wallet is a unique, affordable and convenient prepaid travel card that can help to take the worry out of travelling and shopping online. Its virtual card feature has revolutionised the prepaid travel card market by setting a new standard in security and safety. And it took out the Bronze medal for Best Value Prepaid Travel Card in the Mozo Experts Choice Travel Money Awards.

Key features:

The Velocity Frequent Flyer Global Wallet offers travellers no purchase fees, a low conversion fee and no reload fee to make travelling cheaper and more convenient. Up to four of the nine currencies on offer can be loaded on the card at any one time, meaning country-hoppers are covered!

Customers can also take advantage of the Global Wallet's Frequent Flyer points earning capacity. For every equivalent AUD $1 spent internationally, customers earn one FF point. For every $2 spent in Australia, customers will earn one Velocity Point. The Global Wallet can be used anywhere Visa is accepted - that's over 30 million locations across the world - and with each exchange rate locked in upon loading, travellers will always know exactly how much money they have. 

With its free virtual card facility, the Global Wallet has revolutionised the travel and debit card market. Customers can create a unique and temporary card number, expiry date, and security code in order to shop online or over the phone. After the transaction is complete, this virtual card can be deleted, ensuring that even if a dodgy vendor or site has nabbed the card details, no damage can be done. 

Who it's good for:

The Velocity Frequent Flyer Global Wallet is the perfect product for an online shopper and traveller who is looking for a cheap and reliable prepaid travel card. The security of the virtual card is unbeatable, while the minimal fees and charges make this an accessible option for any traveller. 

Any catches?

A monthly fee of $1 is charged after 12 months of inactivity - you'll just have to keep shopping and travelling to avoid it!
