Travel smarter with UniBank
From travel insurance to our Cash Passport Platinum Card, our comprehensive travel solutions can cater to all your travel needs.
Cash Passport is quite simply a card which you pre-load with your spending money in up to eleven (11) different currencies2 on the same card before you travel. The card can be used for point of sale, online and for ATM transactions worldwide, wherever the MasterCard Acceptance Mark is displayed. It is Chip and PIN protected for enhanced security and worldwide acceptance.
You can reload your card, check your balance, access statements, locate your nearest MasterCard ATM, allocate funds and view your recent transactions online from anywhere in the world. There is also a Help Centre, and information on how to get more from your card.
Simply view ‘My Account’ after logging in via the cash passport website.
This now includes the automated ‘Cash Out’ process available when you are signed in to ’My account’.
View the Cash Out process guide
To retrieve your cash passport balance, complete the Cash Passport Encashment Form. Cash outs are processed within 10 business days. Note: Cash outs of foreign cards will be converted to AUD at the prevailing exchange rate prior to crediting to the customers bank account. You can also access funds via a local MasterCard ATM. Read the Product Disclosure Statement.
Don’t let a delayed flight take the fun out of travel!
Enjoy complimentary access to airport lounges worldwide, upon a flight delay. You and a travelling companion can relax in comfort while you wait for your flight in a LoungeKey™ airport lounge worldwide8.
2. Before you make a decision to acquire the Card, please check www.cashpassport.com/multi for the latest currencies supported.
3. Some ATM Operators may charge their own fee or set their own limits.
4. “Lock in your rate” means that the prevailing exchange rate is locked in for the initial load value only. Subsequent card reloads will be processed at the then prevailing exchange rate on the day of the reload transaction, and will be locked in at that rate.
5. Emergency cash replacement (up to the amount available on your card), anywhere in the world, normally within 20 minutes, though in some remote locations this could take up to 24 hours.
6. Not all RediATMs or RediATM networks are capable of enabling PIN change on Cash Passport cards. It is important that the ATM locator on Cashpassport.com.au is used as it will identify only those ATMs where the PIN change can be completed.
7. Card to Card (C2C) transfers will be enabled to allow two Cash Passport card holders (Australian issued Cash Passport cards) to transfer funds to each other via My Account. Domestic C2C transfers can take place between the same currency, for example AU$ to AU$, or cross currency, for example, AU$ to US$; or AU$ to SG$. Limits will apply up to a maximum of AU$20,000 or currency equivalent. No fee will apply.
8. Flight Delay Pass is a unique service that auto-informs Cash Passport Platinum cardholders if their registered flight is delayed by 2 hours or more. In the event their flight is delayed by more than 2 hours, it sends complimentary lounge pass(es) to them and their registered travel companion(s), so that they can relax in comfort, in one of more than 850 LoungeKey airport lounges worldwide. Visit flightdelaypass.mastercard.com/termsAndConditions for terms and conditions.
UniBank has partnered with American Express to offer you a variety of foreign currency services so you have the confidence of security and convenience when sending and receiving money from overseas.
A Telegraphic Transfer (TT) allows you to electronically send funds directly into your beneficiary’s account in a specified currency. TT’s are the preferred method to make large value international payments as they are processed quickly, cost-effectively and securely in over 100 currencies.
You can choose for the funds to be either in Australian dollars or the currency of the destination country (note some restrictions may apply*). Please note TT’s are not immediate – they can take anywhere between 7 and 10 working days to arrive, depending on the country.
To arrange for a TT complete the Telegraphic Transfer form before printing and posting, faxing or emailing to us.
Send money overseas
Expecting an incoming money transfer from overseas? No problem. Foreign currency deposited into your account will automatically be converted into Australian dollars (AUD). Depending on the overseas financial institution used to initiate the money transfer, one of two intermediaries will be used to deposit the funds: American Express or CUSCAL.
If you’re receiving an overseas money transfer using American Express, simply visit the American Express Portal, complete the online form and send the information provided to your payment sender.
You may also receive money from overseas using CUSCAL’s service. CUSCAL will not accept funds transferred from overseas directly to themselves, therefore your funds will need to be processed through an intermediary bank. You may be able to nominate either an intermediary bank of your own choosing, or CUSCAL’s preferred intermediary bank, NAB. Fees and Charges apply.
