7-Eleven Just Go Pre-Paid Travel Card – Travel Money Card Review
You can load 5 different major currencies onto the card ahead of your trip including AUD, EUR, GBP, NZD and USD.
The 7-Eleven Just Go Prepaid Travel Card is a prepaid Visa card that supports five major global currencies and has no initial loading fee, no monthly account fees and no fees to top up your card. You can load up to $10,000 onto the card at once and manage your account easily online to switch between currencies and load more currency.
Initial Load Fee
Which currencies can I load onto the 7-Eleven Just Go Prepaid Travel Card?
The prepaid Visa card supports five major currencies:
- Australian dollars (AUD)
- New Zealand dollars (NZD)
- Euros (EUR)
- Great British pounds (GBP)
- United States dollars (USD)
Each currency loaded onto the card is stored in separate "wallets". You can move funds around from one currency to another currency using your online account. If you don't have enough money available in one currency to make a purchase, the account will automatically use loaded currency from the next default wallet in the account (this will be exchanged at the current exchange rate at the time of the transaction).
No loading fees
There are no fees to initially load currency onto the card and no fees when you need to top it up.
No monthly fees
There are no ongoing monthly card fees to worry about.
Prepaid Visa card
The 7-Eleven Just Go Prepaid Travel Card is a prepaid Visa card that you can load with the currencies you need ahead of your overseas trip and reload when you need to. Visa is accepted all over the world at ATMs and point-of-sale terminals, as well as for online purchases.
Your card is activated immediately
Once your identity has been verified using your Australian driver's licence or another form of suitable ID, your card will be activated and ready to use immediately. This can all be done in less than 15 minutes.
Manage your card online
You can keep an eye on your balance and load up more funds online. By creating a Just Go account online you can manage your account on the go wherever you are.
Convert your funds to AUD when you need to
If you no longer need the card but you've still got some foreign currency loaded on it, you can convert the currency into Australian dollars by logging in to your account online. This way, you can easily withdraw your cash from an ATM or use it to make purchases in Australia.
Daily exchange rates
The exchange rates offered when loading currency onto the card from AUD change daily in line with the mid-market exchange rate. There is a margin applied on top of the exchange rate that's offered to you. You'll be able to check the exchange rate offered to you before you confirm your transaction.
How to load funds
There are several ways you can load money onto your Just Go card.
- In a 7-Eleven store: Head into any 7-Eleven store and use the self-serve kiosk to load your card.
- BPAY transfer from your bank account: This can take three to four days for funds to load onto your card.
- Direct credit from your bank account: This will take up to two days for your funds to load onto your card.
- Paying online via a debit card: This transfer will occur immediately.
7-Eleven doesn't charge any card-loading fee for any of the options above (but it's important you check your bank doesn't charge a fee of its own).
How to order a 7-Eleven Just Go card
You can go into any 7-Eleven store to pick up a Just Go card and load some money onto it. Once you've registered your card at the self-service kiosk, head to the counter to show your ID (in the form of a driver's licence or passport) then pay to load funds onto the card (there's no initial load fee to do this).
