Expert review

This account acts like a standard everyday transaction account when you’re here in Australia, and also makes a great travel debit card when you head overseas (or shop online from international sites!).

You can hold up to 10 currencies in the account, so you can load up on the currency you need before you go travelling and pay like a local when you’re there. You won’t be charged international transaction fees on purchases made overseas or online from overseas retailers which is a great benefit of the account. Even if you're not planning on going overseas any time soon, you can still save on these fees if you like to buy things from international retailers online.

Keep in mind that while HSBC won’t charge you international ATM withdrawal fees, the local ATM operator may charge its own fee. And, if you’re travelling to a country with a local currency that’s not supported with this account (for example India), the money will be converted from your AUD balance at the current Visa exchange rate on the day. So you’re unable to preload this currency when exchange rates are favourable.

When you’re not travelling, you can use the account to pay your bills, deposit your salary and make everyday purchases with the linked Visa Debit Card, Apple Pay or Google Pay. Samsung Pay isn’t available yet, but most new Samsung devices should be compatible with Google Pay.

    Regarding the $2000 deposit monthly to receive the cashback and the $100 bonus, does it need to be just one deposit of $2000 or different deposits would work as well?

      Hi Vanessa,

      The $2,000 can be a series of deposits or just one large deposit. As long as the combined deposits would be $2,000 or more, you should be able to receive the bonuses.

      Regards,
      Alison

      Hi Dan,

      Yes, you can. It’s worth noting that when transferring funds from HSBC Australia to another HSBC account overseas in the currency of the receiving country, the funds will generally be available the same business day, depending on what time of day the transfer is made.

    When I am not travelling would I be able to use this card or the linked Visa Debit Card to withdraw cash at any ATM within Australia?

      Hi Jay,

      Yes, you can definitely use it domestically. It’s worth noting that other ATM fees charged by the local operator may still apply.

      Hi Andrea,

      According to HSBC international page, you can select your current location and where you would like to open an overseas account. Then, they will tell you the best way for you to apply. Eligibility criteria will differ depending on where you open an account. They will give you this information when you begin the application. They will also ask you to verify your identity with the necessary documentation. Make sure to review their Product Disclosure Statements and Terms & Conditions for more details.
