This prepaid frequent flyer debit card also gives you a way to earn more Qantas Points for your spending both in Australia and overseas, making it a competitive alternative option to frequent flyer credit cards.

However, it does come with a range of requirements and limitations – such as an AUD$50 load minimum and varying loading times. This makes it important to read through the terms and conditions, and weigh up your other options so that you can decide if the Qantas Travel Money prepaid Mastercard is right for you.

    I cannot verify my identity because I don’t have Australian or NZ passport, driver’s licence and my information do not match Australian electoral roll. I have only a Thai passport. So, how can I do? If I can not verify my identity, can I return this card?

    Does MasterCard have a non toll non 1300 number you can call for assistance from overseas?

    I see they only advertise +61 1300…. which actually doesn’t work.

    Can the card be used in the same way as the “Oyster card”? (swiping the yellow card readers at London tube stations.)

      MayAugust 2, 2016Staff

      Hi Harry,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Qantas Cash card is not like a card that can be used as a “transportation ticket.” It is a “prepaid credit card” wherein you can load the card with funds and use it for purchases and ATM withdrawals abroad. With this card, you’ll earn one point per dollar spent overseas for eligible transactions and this is attached to your Qantas frequent flyer account.

      Cheers,
      May

      Thanks for your question.

      Yes, once you’ve retrieved your default card PIN online at qantascash.com or by calling MasterCard Qantas Cash Global Support, you can change it at any time at selected rediATM’s. Please refer to the link I’ve forwarded to your email so you can find your nearest rediATM.

    Two questions.
    1. Having not used my FF cash card other than for booking flights, I need to obtain a PIN number for ATM transactions. What is the process?
    2. I need to obtain another card for my partner, who is registered as a FF. What is the process

    • finder Customer Care
      DebbieMarch 10, 2016Staff

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      You can call the Qantas Cash Service Centre or go online through the Qantas Cash website to get your PIN. Please note that, the PIN is automatically generated and can not be changed.

      Unfortunately, Qantas Cash do not offer supplementary cards so your partner can request for a new card instead. If she is already a Qantas Frequent Flyer member, she can call Qantas customer service or register online to start the process on claiming her new card.

      Please refer to the contact number I’ve sent in your email where you can contact Qantas Cash customer service, as well as the link where your partner can register for a new card.

      For more details, kindly refer to our Qantas Cash card guide.

      I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Debbie
