International travel and payments

Foreign currency and travellers cheques

Having foreign currency as soon as you arrive in another country can be handy for incidentals such as a taxi fares, meals, or renting an airport trolley.  It also means you won’t need to queue at the airport’s currency exchange when you arrive.

Travellers cheques are more secure than cash, and can be replaced if lost or stolen.  Taking both travellers cheques and foreign currency can be a good solution.

Take the stress out of your next overseas trip and save money at the same time. Purchase your travellers cheques and foreign currency online direct from our partner American Express before you leave.
