    How do I check that the pin is working with my ANZ travel card before I leave the country? Can I check the balance in an Aust ATM or will I be charged a fee?

      May | November 22, 2016

      Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for your question.

      When you receive your ANZ Travel card, you will automatically receive your PIN. You can try using your card in an ATM in Australia using the PIN and check your balance without incurring a fee.

    I cashed in $10,000 about 3 months ago and I’ve just checked my account. I now have $9,183? Why is this?

      Jason | October 29, 2016

      Hi Kallan.

      Thank you for reaching out.

      You’ve come through to As a financial comparison service, we can’t check why there’s a deduction on the amount that you’ve cashed in.
      You’ll need to get in contact with ANZ for this concern. You can reach ANZ Travel Card Customer Service on 1800 094 003.

    I currently have GBP on my card, how do I transfer this to CAD or USD on the same card for my next trip?

      Sally | October 11, 2016

      Hi Dee,

      Thanks for your question.

      You can transfer funds between currency wallets on your card via your online ANZ Travel Card account. You’ll just need your User ID and password to login to your account. Once you’re in there, there will be an option to transfer money between your currency wallets. You’ll be provided with a list of currencies you can transfer your existing funds to (including US and CAD) and you can select how much of the existing balance you’d like to move to the new currency wallet.

      I hope this has helped.

    With an ATZ Travel Card, will there be charge for every time I use it even if its for buying a cup of coffee for example as well as a charge for using an ATM?

      Sally | September 19, 2016

      Hi Barbara,

      Thanks for your question.

      You’ll only be charged for purchases if you’re spending in a currency that isn’t the local currency and you incur a currency conversion fee of 3%. Otherwise, if you’re shopping in the US, for example, and have moved your loaded Australian dollars into a US currency wallet, you won’t be charged the currency conversion fee.

      You will also be charged when making an ATM withdrawal, but the fee will depend on the currency you’re withdrawing in.

      The current ATM withdrawal fees are AUD 3.50, CAD 3.00, EUR 2.20, GBP 2.00, HKD 20.00, JPY 260, NZD 4.50, SGD 4.00, THB 95, USD 2.50.

      I hope this has helped.

    I bought a travel card at the Kew branch yesterday and was told I could reload while travelling without a reload fee until the end of September. My husband is currently buying a travel card at the Swanston Street branch and they have not heard of this special. I looked online and it is ambiguous whether the special is only for reload of $3,500 plus or for an original load of $3,500 plus

      May | September 1, 2016

      Hi Clair,

      Thank you for your comment.

      1. Get your ANZ Travel Card in branch and the $11 card issuance fee will be waived. – Travel Card issuance fee waiver only available to ANZ customers who apply for a new Travel Card in a branch, and

      2. The reload fee of 1.1% of Value Purchased will be refunded when you load $3,500 or more via BPAY® before 30 September 2016. The fee will be refunded to the ANZ Travel Card within 2 business days after the reload has been credited to the ANZ Travel Card.

      This offer is valid until 30 September 2016.

      I hope this has answered your question.

    How can I work out my current balance on my travel card?

      May | August 30, 2016

      Hi Sylvia,

      Thank you for your question.

      Just to confirm, are you referring to your leftover balance on your ANZ Travel card? If so, you can reclaim any unused funds on the card by ATM withdrawal or electronic funds transfer. Keep in mind though that your ANZ Travel card will expire on the date displayed on the front of the card.

    What are the exchange rates like?

      Sally | August 29, 2016

      Hi John,

      Thanks for your question.

      As with any foreign exchange rate, the exchange rates used by ANZ change daily, so it’s difficult to say whether they’re competitive or not. The exchange rates on the ANZ Travel Money Card can be found on the ANZ Foreign Exchange Rate page. You can compare these with the official exchange rates to see which offers better value.

    what are the benefits of the travel card over an existing ANZ visa debit card?

      May | August 19, 2016

      Hi Leanne,

      Thank you for your question.

      The advantages of the ANZ Travel Card compared to the ANZ Visa Debit card include you’re charged lesser fees and you’re able to load multiple currencies onto the card.

    Robert | August 19, 2016

    Currently ANZ is offering a refund of the loading fee of 1.1% if loading via BPAY of $3500 before 30 September.
    I’m wondering whether that has to be done in one hit ro I can speculate on exchange rates and load the amount cumulatively.
    e.g. If I were to wish to load USD5000 in total, do I need to load all $5000 at one time or could I load $1000 5 times and still not incur a fee?

      May | August 19, 2016

      Hi Robert,

      Thank you for your question.

      If you are an existing ANZ customer and you apply for a new ANZ Travel Card in a branch, the $11 card issuance fee will be waived and in addition to that, the reload fee of 1.1% of Value Purchased will be refunded when you load $3,500 or more via BPAY before 30 September 2016. So that means you can take advantage of the offer (exclusively for existing ANZ customers) once – that is if you will apply for a new Travel Card.

      Please also note that since this is an ANZ Travel card issued in Australia, you can only reload funds in AUD then the money will be converted to USD or to any of the supported currency you wish to use.
