I posted this link on Cheapies.nz and it proved to be popular, I was checking out deals on here and noticed that no one had mentioned it here so thought I should share it with everyone on OzBargain. I'll stick with my original description (will substitute my travel destination though) and encourage you to read the comment on my original post as a few questions and answers were raised.
So, to my original description..
This isn’t a deal as such but it does look good but wasn’t sure where it should be posted if not here since essentially it will/can save you money (compared to the more common alternative options).
I’ve been a user of TransferWise for a long time now but it only works well if you have a local currency bank account to send/receive from so generally not helpful for holidays.
Today I noticed they now offer a MasterCard that you can move money to in local currencies, it works by providing you with a local bank account number to make transfers to via their usual method.
I’m off to
Aussie New Zealand in a few weeks so have a feeling this will be helpful for that. The specific currencies they currently offer for the card are NZD, AUD, USD, GBP and EUR.
Worth checking out if you are doing any travel or perhaps buy online from any of the above countries.
Yes, there are referral codes but not chasing kudos for sign up, genuinely think this looks good.
