Jetting off to Japan?

Attention: open in a new window. Print


Japan is one of the fastest-growing destinations for Aussie travellers, and with the Rugby World Cup and upcoming Olympic Games, the country is set to receive even more attention.

Surprisingly, despite it being such a high-tech country, cash is still used widely in Japan. It may therefore be useful for travellers to take some of their spending money in Japanese Yen. Many ATMs in Japan do not accept credit, debit or ATM cards which are issued outside of Japan. The main exceptions are postal ATMs, found at approximately 20,000 post offices, and 7-Bank ATMs, found at approximately 20,000 7-Eleven convenience stores.

Thanks to our partnership with Travelex, you can order Japanese Yen at your local Qudos Bank branch, with orders normally delivered within 48-72 hours (subject to location).

No matter where you may be travelling, it is generally useful to take some local cash for arrival at your destination overseas. With a choice of over 50 currencies available, Qudos Bank is here to help with your travel money needs.
