'Multi-Currency Cash Passport'
Pre-Paid MasterCard

"Safety and convenience"

The essential travel money card that gives you security, flexibility & can now hold up to 9 currencies on a single card

The Multi-Currency Cash Passport MasterCard is a pre-paid, chip and PIN protected travel money card designed to hold up to 10 major currencies (AU$, US$, GB£, EUR€, NZ$, HK$, SG$, CA$, JP¥, THB) that enables you to obtain local currency from foreign ATM's, or conduct Australian and overseas EFTPOS, internet or phone purchases. It can be used wherever MasterCard is accepted – over 35.9 million MasterCard retailers worldwide with no transaction fees*.

As the Cash Passport is not linked to your bank account, you also reduce the risk of loss due to fraud. However, as the card is a stand-a-lone facility, a fee of 1% of the value of the amount transferred (upon initial purchase or reload) will be levied. Other fees and charges will also apply – details are contained in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDF, 927KB).

We also offer:

  • our Visa Debit Card for access to funds in your Wide Bay Australia Visa Debit Account at Wide Bay Australia branches, Australian ATM's, overseas ATM's, Australian EFTPOS, overseas EFTPOS, online, phone or mail order purchases;
  • our Cashcard for access to funds in selected Wide Bay Australia accounts at Australian ATM's, EFTPOS and Bank@Post outlets; or
  • Wide Bay Australia Credit Cards.

Acceptance  
  • Withdraw local currency from over 2.1 million MasterCard ATM's worldwide (As Cash Passport cards are designed primarily for overseas ATM's, Wide Bay does not recommend using them at Australian ATM's#)
  • Conduct EFTPOS withdrawals overseas and in Australia at over 31.4 million merchants
  • Make internet or phone purchases globally where MasterCard is accepted
Choice of $ Amount   Purchase any amount from $100 to $100,000 and we load that amount onto your card.
Smart Wallet Functionality   Intelligently recognises your location and selects the appropriate currency for your transaction. If there are insufficient funds in that currency, it automatically uses funds from multiple wallets if required to help ensure your transaction is approved.
Reloadable   Reload again and again! If you're running short of money you can have additional funds added by someone back home by contacting a branch or you can reload from anywhere in the world using BPAY® via phone or internet banking.
No Credit Rating Required   You don't need a credit rating to apply – that's great if you're under 18 or don't qualify for a Wide Bay Australia Visa Debit or credit card
No Bank Account Required   You don't need to be a Wide Bay Australia accountholder to apply
Added Security   No value is kept on the card – so if the card is lost or stolen, no-one can access your money (provided the PIN remains secret). Your card is not linked to your bank account which also reduces your exposure to loss.
Second Card Free   For added convenience, you will receive a second free Cash Passport card. This operates on the same pool of funds. You can carry this separately – so even is one is stolen – you can cancel it but still access your funds through your other card.
Access to Emergency Funds   Card Services can offer assistance including emergency cash replacement: anywhere in the world, normally within 20 minutes, up to the available balance on your Card
24/7 Global Support   Emergency Assistance to replace lost or stolen cards within 24 hours or assistance if you forget your PIN
Manage Card
