Making business travel simpler with the Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card

Travelling for business can be incredibly stressful for travellers. Often, travellers are subjected to time constraints, navigating a strange city in another language and eating unrecognisable dishes. The Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ from Bidvest Bank is one way business travel can be simplified.


Don’t worry about cash
Other than taking a small amount of cash to see you through hailing a cab or buying coffee, travellers that travel with a Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ will not need to worry about drawing money. The Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ can be used almost anywhere when you travel¹.

Chat to your Travel Procurement Manager at the office about having your daily stipend loaded onto a Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ so you need not worry about incurring and claiming back personal bank charges and currency conversion commissions.

Don’t worry about theft or loss
When your Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ is issued, you will receive a second backup card. This card can be used in the case of the primary card being lost or stolen. Both cards are active when issued so there will be no delay in accessing funds.

If both your cards are lost or stolen, Bidvest Bank can deliver a replacement card or send emergency cash to you via a participating emergency cash provider.

Track your transactions
To make your post-trip recon admin easier, the bank can provide a statement for your Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ that allows you to review and reconcile your expenses from your trip and easily submit to your manager should you need to.

By depositing funds into your Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™, rather than a personal bank account, you can also avoid incurring business expenses on your personal bank accounts.

View your Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ balance
By being able to quickly view balances in the Bidvest Bank Mastercard® World Currency Card™ app or online via the My Account website, you can budget easily and make sure you have sufficient funds for your trip.
