Spending between currencies

Qantas Cash helps you cut down on unnecessary foreign currency exchanges when you’re travelling so you save money and spend more time seeing the sights.

Although you may load more than one currency on Qantas Cash, the funds on your card will be treated as a single pool of funds in instances where you do not have funds available in the currency of a transaction. This means you can have peace of mind that, if you don’t have enough of any particular currency loaded on your card to cover transactions in that currency, funds will be retrieved from the balances of your other loaded currencies in the default order of priority to fund the transactions. Buy and load funds now with our multi currency card.

The default order of priority is;

1. AUD 2. USD 3. GBP 4. EUR 5. THB 6. NZD 7. SGD 8. HKD 9. CAD 10. JPY 11. AED

Jonathan is in Japan and has 4500 Yen on his card along with $100 Canadian dollars. Jonathan wants to buy an item in Japan for 6000 Yen but doesn't want to transfer between wallets himself as he has limited time. He realises he has other currencies on his card so he makes the purchase knowing that his CAD will fund the difference in JPY.

As a currency conversion is required to convert funds from Canadian dollars to yen so that the purchase can be completed, Jonathon will be charged a currency conversion fee^. If multiple currencies were converted to fund the transaction, the currency conversion fee would be charged for each exchange.

Don't have the currency you need?

Currently we have 11 currencies that you can buy and load onto your card. If you have multiple currencies loaded on your Qantas Card, the applicable currency will automatically be used for the country in which you make your transaction. If you have not converted funds to the applicable currency, the funds will be retrieved from the balances of your other loaded currencies in the default order+ of priority to fund the transaction. As a currency conversion will be required to fund the transaction, a currency conversion fee will apply.^

If you are visiting a country which uses a currency other than one of the 11 available currencies on your Qantas Card, you can still use your card to make a purchase##. The transaction will be debited from balance of your other loaded currencies in the default order+ of priority to fund the transaction.

DEFAULT CURRENCY

The default currency of Qantas Cash is Australian Dollars. Default currency means the currency which will be loaded when you deposit directly from your bank account via Bank Transfer and BPAY®, without loading funds first via the website.

If you’re travelling for a long period of time, you can change your default currency to any of the nine other currencies available on your Qantas Card. If you change the default currency, funds will be loaded to the currency conversion from Australian Dollars to your nominated default currency, with no currency conversion fee.  The foreign exchange rate applicable at the time the load is processed will apply

 

 

Exchange rates for subsequent reloads will be set at the prevailing exchange rate at the time of the transaction. For full details on how exchange rates are set and applied please see the Product Disclosure Statement at qantascash.com
