AC­CES­SORY OF THE WEEK

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Travel -

AS an al­ter­na­tive to credit cards, Trav­elex Cash Pass­port is a pre­paid travel card that al­lows trav­ellers to load funds be­fore head­ing over­seas. There are two types: an ATM-only card, which pro­vides ac­cess to funds at Visa ATMs world­wide (cur­rency is pur­chased at a fixed rate to avoid fluc­tu­at­ing ex­change rates) and a debit card, which can be used to pur­chase goods and ser­vices and ac­cess cash. Both cards come with a free back-up card and on­line trans­ac­tion and bal­ance checks, and can be topped up any­where in the world via BPay. From Aus­tralia Post and Trav­elex out­lets. www.cashpass­port.com.au.
