Multi-Currency Cash Card

Multi-currency Cash Passport enables card holders to load both foreign currencies and Australian Dollars onto the one card, and can be reloaded as many times as they want during the life of the card, within applicable time limits.
We think the new Mastercard Multi Currency Cash Passport is the best multi-currency card available to Australian travellers. The major difference is the multi-currency card offers smart wallet functionality. Not available with most cards, this function allows funds to be used from multiple currency wallets if required to help ensure your transaction is approved. This means, unlike other multi-currency cards, if you have run out of enough funds in the currency of the country you are in, money from another loaded currency can be exchanged on the card.

Multi- currency Cash Passport Key Features & Benefits 

  • International ATM Transactions Fee FREE
