      Hi Robyn,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      Travelling with cash in Vanuatu is recommended. We have a comparison of travel money cards HERE to avoid paying international transfer fees and commissions. Some places in Vanuatu accept Australian dollars as well, however the exchange rate is generally unfavourable. Since Vanuatu is not as popular as say Bali or USA just to name a few, we do not have a specific page for travel money cards there. Thanks for bringing this up and we might update our pages soon and include Vanuatu. Hope you find what you need and please remember that you can always send us a message anytime if you have further questions.

      Cheers,
      Joel

    I am traveling to China and cannot see it listed as a location which surprises me. Also from my initial research it does not get listed on any cards. So, can you recommend a travel card for China or is cash the best option?

    Thank You.

      Hi Brenden,

      Thank you for getting in touch with finder.

      Since you are traveling to China, please check out this page for your travel money options.

      China is developing at a rapid pace, and is emerging as a centre for global banking and financial services; however, outside of the major cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an and Hong Kong, you won’t be able to reply on using your card and will need to carry cash.

      I hope this helps.

      Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any other enquiries.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi Mili,

      Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

      Serbia is home to mountains, monasteries, vampires (well, maybe), raspberries and an edgy nightlife scene. The Balkan nation is growing as a destination for tourists and is very much cash based compared to other countries in Western Europe. Visa and Mastercard credit cards are widely accepted by merchants with point of sale card payment facilities as well as ATMs. Banking services and facilities in Belgrade and other large cities are modern and safe; however, you may have problems using your cards for purchases in towns and rural areas. ATM access may be limited in these places, too. The currency of the Republic of Serbia is the dinar (RSD). We compare products you can use to spend in RSD without paying international transaction fees HERE.

      Cheers,
      Joel

      Hi Edna,

      Thanks for your question.

      As a financial comparison service, we can’t suggest what the ‘best’ card option is as the most suitable option will depend on your financial situation and your travel plans.

      For travel money tips for travelling to Europe (including Sweden and Norway), please see this page.

      Cheers,

      Sally

    I am going to south africa on holiday what is the cheapest way to exchange some money

      Hi Jojo,

      Thanks for your enquiry.

      You can compare a range of money transfer providers that transfer funds to South Africa on this page. If you look under the ‘rate’ and ‘online transfer fee’ tab, you’ll be able to find the most competitive provider for your transaction.

      Otherwise you can compare different travel money cards here, some of which you can load the South African Rand (ZAR).

      Thanks,
      Belinda

    Citibank on their site mention their ATM partners but do not list who they are. How do I find out who their ATM partners are for UK and Europe apart from Visa branded ATMs?

      Hi Richo,

      Thanks for your comment.

      You can locate Citi’s international ATM partners using the findmyciti website. I’ve sent you a link via email.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Sally

      Thanks Sally, I have used findmyciti but it was less than helpfully looking for ATMs in Europe. Citibank don’t seem to have many if any ATMs in Europe and they don’t list their partner ATMs. The best option is to search for Visa Plus ATMs.
      Cheers

      Hi Richo,

      Thanks for your response and I’m sorry to hear that the findmyciti app wasn’t particularly helpful.

      Yes, you will be able to access your funds via a Visa Plus ATM. Please keep in mind that some local ATM fees may apply.

      Best,

      Sally
