Foreign currencies & rates

There are two ways you can load and spend your travel money:

Buy foreign exchange at a locked-in rate before you travel

Choose from 10 foreign currencies⁴ and lock in the rate to avoid currency fluctuations³. Be confident knowing what you have to spend while you're away.

Load Australian dollars and spend around the world

If you’re travelling to a destination where we don’t offer a locked-in rate – such as Indonesia, China or South Africa, you can load and spend Australian dollars⁴. Our daily rate for the currency you’re spending in will apply⁵. Use our Currency Conversion Tool to check the exchange rate daily.

Learn more about buying foreign currency

The 10 foreign currencies that you can buy are: United States Dollar, Great British Pound, Euro, Thai Baht, New Zealand Dollar, Singapore Dollar, Hong Kong Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Japanese Yen, Emirati Dirham

You can load available currencies all at once or one at a time, depending on the nature of your trip. When you do, you’ll lock in the exchange rate for each of them³, meaning you’ll always know how much you’re spending.

If you’re travelling to a destination where we don’t offer a locked in rate – such as Indonesia, China or South Africa - you can load Australian dollars and spend in the local currency. Our daily exchange rate for the currency you’re spending in will apply⁵.

You can’t use your credit card to buy and load foreign currency onto your Qantas Travel Money card. If you’d like to load foreign currency, here’s how to do it:

  • Instant load – Receive funds instantly using a Mastercard or Visa debit card. A fee of 0.5% applies⁵.
  • Bank transfer – Funds take 1 business day to load* and no fees apply to use this transfer method⁵.
  • BPAY – Funds take 2-3 business days to load* and no fees apply to use this transfer method⁵.

*Load times may vary between financial institutions including when your transfer is made after 2pm AEST/AEDT, outside business hours, immediately prior to, or on a weekend or public holiday

If you have leftover foreign currency on your card, you can:

  1. Move your money between any of the 11 currencies available to buy with your Qantas Travel Money card⁴, including transferring back to AUD to keep for use on another trip or in Australia⁶
  2. Cash-out your currency and have it transferred into Australian bank account
  3. Transfer the funds instantly to another Qantas Frequent Flyer who has an activated Qantas Travel Money card
