Travel cards

The Suncorp Bank Multi-currency Cash Passport allows you to load and spend up to 10 different international currencies when you're overseas or shopping online with an international retailer. This prepaid Visa debit card gives you a way to lock in exchange rates and spend in the currency of your destination to avoid the additional fee for currency conversion.

Available currencies

  • Australian dollars
  • US dollars
  • Euros
  • Pounds
  • New Zealand dollars
  • Thai baht
  • Canadian dollars
  • Hong Kong dollars
  • Japanese yen
  • Singapore dollars

Note that there are fees for international ATM withdrawals, starting from AUD$3.50. Meanwhile, domestic ATM withdrawals in Australian dollars attract a cost worth 2.95% of the transaction value. There’s an initial load fee of $15 and a BPAY reload fee of 1% when you deposit funds on the travel card. The minimum load is AUD$100. You can save on these reload fees by using the Suncorp travel card online portal to both order and reload the product.

Traveller’s cheques

Suncorp Bank and Travelex sell American Express traveller’s cheques in different currencies. Traveller’s cheques are considered one of the safest way to take money to a different country. Traveller’s cheques can be replaced if lost or stolen and you’re the only person who can cash your cheques. The downside to this type of travel money is convenience. It’s getting increasingly difficult to find institutions where you can cash your cheques, and often there’s a commission.

Currency exchange

If you want to have some cash when you arrive overseas, Suncorp Bank provides ATMs at limited locations which dispense foreign currency. There are also Travelex foreign exchange bureaus inside selected Suncorp branches. The Suncorp branches with a Travelex bureau provide a greater variety of travel money services. Suncorp branches also buy and sell foreign cash, and most branches have a variety of international currencies on hand. Note that you’ll pay a $10 fee to buy or sell foreign cash at a Suncorp branch.

  • Foreign currency ATMs. Foreign currency ATMs are located the following Suncorp Bank branches in Queensland: Kawana Waters, Garden City, and Eagle Street Sales Centre. These ATMs dispense euros, pounds, New Zealand dollars and US dollars. You can use your Visa or Mastercard debit or credit card to withdraw foreign cash from these ATMs. Note that American Express cards can not be used at Suncorp Bank foreign currency ATMs.
  • Travelex bureaus. You can also find Travelex outlets inside select Suncorp Bank branches on George Street (Sydney), Chermside (Brisbane) and Edward Street (Brisbane). Travelex and Suncorp Bank provide these travel money services:
    • Buy foreign cash
    • Buy the Cash Passport travel money card
    • Buy traveller’s cheques
    • Send money overseas using Western Union
    • Buy prepaid international phone cards.

Travel insurance

You can access complimentary travel insurance for up to six months if you use your Suncorp Clear Options Platinum Visa credit card to pay for your return overseas travel ticket. This product also offers transit accident insurance. The complimentary travel insurance benefit on the Clear Options Platinum Visa is provided by Allianz.

    I want convert my MasterCard back to my Suncorp account

    • Staff
      SallyOctober 24, 2016Staff

      Hi Collene,

      Thanks for your question.

      Just to confirm, are you saying that you’d like to transfer funds from your Suncorp Cash Passport MasterCard to your regular debit account? You can do this by signing into your Cash Passport online account, selecting transfer and then nominating to transfer the funds to your savings account. Make sure to have the details of your savings account handy when you want to make the transfer. Also, if you’re transferring the rest of your funds to another card, please note that an account closing fee of $10 may apply.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,

      Sally

      Hi Kathy,

      Thanks for your question.

      There are a few charges that will be levied:
      - Foreign currency conversion fee which is 3% of the transaction amount in AUD
      - Foreign ATM fee (ATM Operator Fee charged at the operator’s discretion when withdrawing from an ATM)
      - Exchange rates (applicable at the time)

      Cheers,
      Shirley

    What is the iban code for suncorp bank brisbane

    • Staff
      ElizabethNovember 11, 2014Staff

      Hi altea,

      Thanks for your question.

      IBAN codes are only relevant to overseas banks, generally banks that are from the European Union. So, you will not need the IBAN from Suncorp but you will need the IBAN of the bank you are trying to send money to.

      I hope this has helped.

      Thanks,

      Elizabeth
