    Hi, im travelling to Japan & Canada in September/October. I’d like to get a travel/credit card to use to make purchases and withdraw cash. Which card would you suggest for best exchange rates, currency conversion & minimal fees? I’ve heard good things about Citibank and 28 degrees cards? Thanks in advance

      Hi Ben!

      Thanks for getting in touch!

      Travelling to Cananda & Japan, you can compare from 28 degrees Platinum credit card or the ANZ Rewards Travel Adventures credit card.

      Both offer the 0% to the lowest foreign conversion fee rates, 0% ATM withdrawal fees and lower cash advance fees.

      Hope this was helpful. Feel free to reply to this message if you have more questions.

      Cheers,
      Nikki

    Which travel card has the best exchange rates, plus one I can load my own currency and it withdraws in required currencies when overseas?

      Hi Kristi,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Depending on where you’re going, the travel money cards that would allow you to load with other currencies (aside from AUD) are listed on this page. So for instance the card supports USD, when you go to the US, you will be able to withdraw USD right away because you’ve already preloaded the card with USD prior to your trip. But please note though that we can’t really tell which ones offer the best exchange rate as that varies and changes all the time. Usually, the rate is determined by the time you convert your AUD to other currencies.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Big Dog!

      Most Australian travel money cards allow you to withdraw money in local currency in Russia and Ukraine. These withdrawals or purchases will be automatically converted from the currency you have loaded onto your card. Please note that rather than locking in the exchange rate when you loaded the currency, it will be subject to daily exchange rate.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Jonathan

    Can you advise of any travel cards that will load South African Rand? Cheers

      ChesterMarch 30, 2017Staff

      Hello Mel,

      Thanks for your question,

      Most of the Australian travel money cards does not support South African Rand. No need to worry, for you to learn more and check your options, you may visit https://www.finder.com.au/travel-money/south-africa this page makes a great travel money guide before your trip. Let me just share that when a specific currency is not supported then a typical currency conversion fee will incur. Also please read and understand the terms and conditions on their PDS before selecting a particular product.

      Regards,
      Chester

    What is the best credit card for USA?

      Hi Anne,

      Thanks for your question.

      As a financial comparison service, we can’t recommend any specific products as the ‘best’ option will depend on your financial situation and travel plans.

      However, as all of the Australian Travel Money cards support US Dollars and can be used in the US (under Visa, MasterCard or American Express), most of them are suitable for use in the US. However, you might want to consider how you’ll be using the card and look at some of the fees and features that might impact the value you get from it. For example, you might want to look for a card that comes with a global ATM alliance to reduce ATM withdrawal fees or a card that comes with a frequent flyer program.

      For more travel money tips for your trip to the USA, please see our USA Travel Money guide.

      I hope this has helped.

      Cheers,

      Sally

    From what I can work out a Citi Plus account charges no account fees and no conversion fees when overseas, however they say to use Westpac, Citibank, St. George ATM’s. Do these Banks have ATM’S in New Zealand

      Hi Brigida,

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note that you can use Citibank, Westpac, St.George, BankSA and Bank of Melbourne ATMs throughout Australia for free. Unfortunately they don’t apply to international ATMs.

      There is a Citibank ATM in Auckland that is available. Otherwise, an foreign ATM withdrawal fee may apply.

      Cheers,
      Shirley
