Travel Money Oz

2.3 from 93 reviews

Easy and convenient way to avoid carrying cash.

We used this card to avoid the banks dreaded currency conversion charges. We used this in New Zealand and the cards were generally accepted everywhere. It was easy to check the balance at any ATM. A recommended way to pay in the currency of the country you are in.
We received friendly and efficient customer service when we obtained the cards.

Purchased at Flight Centre for $4,000.00.

Be Careful of Paying by Card

Please be aware that if you buy foreign currency using your credit card then the card company / bank may treat it as a cash advance i.e. incurs a cash advance fee and then immediate interest (depending on their specific terms). This makes paying by card much less attractive. Typically you also won't eat any credit card points.

Travel Money Oz should clearly point this out when offering card payment.

I can't believe the rate was so low !

I went to Sri Lanka and ordered some money online, but the order ended up getting cancelled, and I was really busy so I just went to the Travel Money Oz store and asked for Sri Lankan rupees. I had been to that shop before and I thought the rate would at least be in the ball park, so I didn't bother to check what rate they were giving me. Then when my friend asked me what rate I got I checked it and it was just under 100 rupees for 1 AUD. But the online rate which I had been offered with Travelex was just over 115 rupees. I think I should have been more careful, and actually I think the rate offered at the shops/banks in Sri Lanka was possibly more competitive still.

Great Company!

Purchased GBP and AED in the store in King George Square in December for my trip to the UK and Abu Dhabi. Received great, friendly service and advice along with a great rate. Also put some money on a Currency Pass card to use as a back up, no problems using it in either country for transactions and withdrawing from an ATM. Just made sure to have my pin handy and always press credit like I was informed in store. After reading some reviews on reloading online I was a sceptic but I had absolutely no issue in either country topping up with my debit card! First time, everytime.
Thanks Travel Money Oz for letting me spend without a worry!!

Loving how Travel Money Oz can give me reliably good exchange rates

Needs improvement

We travelled to NZ. All went well using the card. We didn't know our balance, but that was our own fault because we did not take phones or laptops to use on the trip. Problems were with customer service at the Flight Centre booths for Travel Money Oz at West Lakes i.e. no computer service available several times, long waits to be served, was told that there would be a fee despite claims of no fees or commissions, etc.. then told that we couldn't withdraw our money or close our account anyway

Easy to use

Went to India, the card was accepted everywhere we bought things. It was easy to manage if you had the travel app. Customer service was very good and easy to load. Purchase this product from Travel Money Oz, Darwin Airport.

The New Travellers Cheques

My daughter and I travelled to Canada and used our card at the airports (Doha and Montreal) and while we were travelling through Canada. It was very convenient and easy to use. So much easier than the old fashioned travellers cheques.

Questions & Answers

Can you get a card in one name with two access cards ?
1 answer
Hi Marl S Yes you can have 2 cards, but probably not in the same name. We had two cards one in my name and another in my wives name. However you have to give an email address for each card and you can not use the same email address for two or more cards. I have 3 email addresses so we were able to have the other card with one of these email addresses. We thought that it was better to have two cards for if you would loose one for instance you still have the other to use while the lost one get replaced which would probably take some time. I am not sure if you can have two cards in the same name as we did not ask them, but I don't think you can, but I can't really see why not, just ask them. Personally I think it is a good idea not to put all of your money on the one card. Hope this helps you.

My daughter and boyfriend transferred all their savings into a Travel Money Oz MasterCard before travelling overseas. They both have been unable to access their money and have had NO luck trying to contact the company. Their 1300 number on website is unavailable and nobody responds to their email. Does anybody have an emergency number to call or any suggestions?

Can you have USD loaded onto a travel card priorto leaving the country or once your in the country
2 answers
Avoid the travel cards, look at the reviews for them, they get a commission for selling them to you and then cost every time you use it .Don't go with Travel Money Oz card. If you need to get a card, get either a Velocity card or there's one from ING where I think the fees aren't as high. Yes, you put Aus dollars on it and then go on line and can change into USD.
