World Currency Card™: the ultimate travel accessory

By Bidvest Bank

With over 100 branches throughout South Africa, Bidvest Bank understands the unique travel foreign exchange requirements of individuals and caters for them accordingly. An increasingly popular option is the pre-paid currency card. Regardless of whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, owning a World Currency CardTM is essential for the safe management of your travel money whilst travelling abroad.

World Currency prepaid travel cards not only allow you to access your money in the local currency of your travel destination, they also reduce the risks associated with travelling by allowing you to hold your money safely on a card and not in cash. As it’s prepaid, the World Currency CardTM ensures that you never spend over your allocated budget. Furthermore, World Currency Cards from  Bidvest Bank offer additional security as they’re easy to cancel and replace if they’re lost or stolen while you’re travelling.

Combining the advantages offered by traveller’s cheques, debit cards and credit cards, prepaid currency cards can be loaded with money for use at both ATMs and at cash points to make payments. Browse the Bidvest Bank travel foreign exchange web page for more information on our comprehensive range of travel forex products such as prepaid travel cards.
