Whether you’re traveling overseas for work or pleasure, we have the right bank accounts, travel insurance, foreign currency and card options to help the trip run smoothly.
All your banking needs for going overseas
Just do all of your banking online, or via Eftpos/ATM – waive your paper statements, and you can bank with no transaction or account fees.
DebitPlus Visa Card
It’s a Visa debit card that’s linked to your Westpac transaction account, not a Visa credit card. It draws the money from your account so you don’t have a credit card bill to pay. It also doubles as an Eftpos card – so it’s the only card you need.
What do you need in a credit card? Maybe you’d like a card with great rewards, or perhaps a lower interest rate? Check out our options.
Sending money to or from overseas
It’s really easy to send money to or from overseas with telegraphic transfers and drafts.
Don’t let lost luggage – or worse – ruin your holiday. Our travel insurance is designed for recreational travel, and includes a 24-hour call centre for emergencies, to make sure you could have help when and where you need it.
You’ll never overspend with our handy reloadable pre-paid travel cards. Simply set yourself a spending limit, pre-load your travel card up and you're good to go.
You could get half price commission when you buy foreign cash from us and your first annual fee waived on a hotpoints credit card if you qualify for Travel Bag.
Foreign currency accounts
If you’re away for a while, a foreign currency account could be very handy! You could use it to help manage your international transfers.
ATM global alliance
Avoid the $8 ATM transaction fee when you withdraw money overseas using an ATM belonging to the ATM Global Alliance.
