If you’re planning an overseas trip, you can stretch your travel budget further when you lock in competitive exchange rates with Qantas Cash this week.

Until midnight this Friday 29 June 2018, Qantas Travel Money is offering special exchange rates to Qantas Cash cardholders who load funds directly into one of the 10 supported foreign currencies.

You can compare the special rates against the standard exchange rates below:

These special rates are competitive when compared to the standard rates offered on the Qantas Cash card. If you’re weighing up which travel card to use on your next trip, you should compare these promotional rates with other options on the market to see which card offers you the most value.

If you’ve already loaded cash on your Qantas Cash account and into a supported currency wallet, you should note that these competitive rates don’t apply to transfers between wallets.

As well as competitive exchange rates, you’ll also earn Qantas Points when you spend with your Qantas Cash card. You’ll collect 1.5 Qantas Points per AUD$1 spent in equivalent foreign currency on eligible purchases overseas or online and 1 Qantas Point per AUD$4 spent on eligible transactions in Australia.
