How to use a Travel Money Card

  1. Order a Travel Money Card in NetBank (or at your nearest branch) and load at least 1 AUD or the foreign currency equivalent  to get started.
  2. Once you’ve got your card, activate and set PIN online in NetBank or under Cards in the CommBank app.
  3. Lock-in the rate by loading currency on your card in NetBank or the CommBank app.
  1. Keep your Travel Money Card and back-up card somewhere safe.
  2. The local currency is automatically selected when you pay for something, if  it’s loaded on your card.
  3. Stick to daily transaction limits. Maximum value of purchases per day: AUD 7,500 or foreign currency equivalent. Maximum amount you can withdraw from ATMs per day: AUD 2,500 or foreign currency equivalent. However, most ATM operators have a limit on how much you can withdraw from an ATM per transaction which may be less than our maximum.
  4. Reload in real time, fee free if your balance gets low.
  1. Got leftover currency? Exchange it for another currency or back into your CommBank account from NetBank or the CommBank app.
  2. Top up your Travel Money Card (it’s valid for two years) in preparation for your next trip. 

Reloading is quick and easy

Travelling to several countries or spending a few hours at an airport during a stopover?

You can load up to 13 currencies on your Travel Money Card.

When you’re ready to pay for something, the applicable currency will automatically be used for the country you’re in. 

Make sure you have enough of the correct currency on your card to avoid additional fees. If you don’t, we’ll use the next available currency instead, so long as there’s enough of it loaded on your card.

If you load multiple currencies on your Travel Money Card, you can change the order (the next available currency) anytime.
