The MoneyWallet

When travelling you may be concerned about your money being lost or stolen and therefore being stranded in a foreign country. We understand this and have come up with a solution. Instead of carrying a lot of cash, why not load most of the money you receive from exchanging foreign currency onto a MoneyWallet card?

MoneyWallet is a prepaid MasterCard card loaded in rand (ZAR) that can only be used at an ATM or as a payment card in South Africa and is a safe alternative to carrying cash. Click here to find out more about MoneyWallet
