Latest Travel Tips to Access Your Money Overseas
Tuesday, 17 July 2018
Before you venture off on your next overseas holiday it’s important you notify us before you leave. Send us a secure email with your travel dates and where you are travelling to, or give us a call on 1300 747 747 so we can update our records and prevent any potential access issues while travelling.
Consider Additional Payment Methods
It’s better to be safe than sorry, make sure you have a number of payment methods available when travelling including debit and credit cards. We recommend at a minimum that you travel with your Visa Debit Card for broad acceptance across global merchants and ATM networks. While our Cue Card may be supported in some countries we can’t guarantee access in any specific international regions due to global changes to international payments and payment services, ATM and merchant acceptance can be unreliable.
In addition to your cards and ATMs, think about purchasing some foreign cash or obtaining a travel card to ensure you’re covered from all bases. Find out more about our international money services.
Be Security Aware
