Single Currency Cash Passport
The Single Currency Cash Passport is a secure and convenient way to manage your budget when travelling overseas.
It’s pre-loaded with your funds for use at millions of cash machines and merchants including shops and restaurants abroad**.
** The Card may only be used outside the Common Monetary Area (being South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland and Namibia). In addition, there may be some other countries or geographical regions where usage of the Card is prohibited. Please see ‘Where can I use the Card?' to verify the list of countries and regions with restrictions.
Lock in exchange rates
Know exactly how much you have to spend
Get a fixed exchange rate each time you load your Card.
Locking in the value on the day of load (or reload) could help you to avoid exchange rate fluctuations, and will make it easier to focus on enjoying your holiday or grabbing a bargain from overseas retailers.
Four individual currency cards
The Single Currency Cash Passport can be reloaded in four individual currencies. You can choose to load USD, GBP. EUR and Australian Dollars.
Whether you are travelling overseas or shopping, pay in foreign currencies to avoid hidden exchange cost.
Alternatively, you can opt for a Multi Currency Cash Passport.
Please note that it is an exchange control requirement that all unused foreign exchange is converted into Rand within 30 days of returning to South Africa. We recommend that you wait until 10 days after your last transaction before converting the currency on your Cash Passport back to Rand, to ensure that all your transactions have been processed, and so avoid overspending on your Card. You can withdraw the balance remaining on your Card at ATMs worldwide**, displaying the Mastercard® Acceptance Mark. Alternatively, you can take your Card back to the branch where you bought it and they’ll refund the balance.
Even with a zero balance, your Cash Passport is still valid (until the expiry date on the front of the Card), and you can reload it for your next trip anytime. Just take your Cash Passport, a valid ID, your valid passport, proof of travel, proof of residence and payment to any participating branch of the location where you purchased your Card, and they will reload the Card for you.
Your Cash Passport is valid for at least three years (see the expiry date on your Card) and reloadable as many times as you want – within the limits and restrictions of your Card.
* Local Exchange Control Regulations issued in terms of the Currency and Exchanges Act 9 of 1933 and the provisions of the Financial Intelligence Centre Act 38 of 2001 apply.
