Travelling Abroad

Forex TraveWallet

Whether you are going on a business trip or on your dream holiday abroad, there is always so much to look forward to when one is going to a foreign country. Be it an important business meeting or a conference, beach trip or the great outdoors, exploring the sights, shopping or merely experiencing a new culture. There are so many things to organise and the last thing you want to worry about before departing is the hassle of organising foreign currency. We understand this, so why not make us your first stop for foreign exchange.

It is important to find out what type(s) of foreign exchange product(s) is accepted in the country you are visiting, as this will help you to decide which travel forex product to use. For example, some countries do not accept Travellers Cheques and/or may not have the infrastructure that enables them to accept cards for making payments. For these countries it would be preferable to take cash.

Where possible it is a good idea to carry a mixed purse of products - cash to pay for things such as taxi fares, a TravelWallet card or Travellers Cheques, and your debit or credit card as a back-up option. We offer a range of foreign exchange products to suit your needs, ranging from the TravelWallet card, foreign notes and American Express ® Travellers Cheques..

You can buy your foreign exchange at your nearest foreign exchange outlets or order it through Direct Delivery service (conditions apply).
