Loading money onto your Qantas Travel Money prepaid travel money card is easy. Choose from the following three options:
Instant Load (funds available immediately)
Need to access your funds immediately? Simply select 'Instant Load' via the Qantas Money app or website and - for a fee of just 0.5% - you can use your Mastercard® debit card or Visa debit card to load funds instantaneously.
Bank transfer (funds available the next business day)
Loading directly from your bank account using Bank Transfer is a great way to load or top up your balance, plus it's free. To make a Bank Transfer:
- Select ‘Bank Transfer’ via the Qantas Money app or website.
- Select the currencies and amounts you wish to load.
- Complete the transfer via your personal bank account.
Funds transferred before 2pm AEST/AEDST Monday to Friday will be available the next business day.
BPAY (funds available within 2-3 business days)
You can also load using BPAY and it's free. To load via BPAY:
- Select ‘BPAY’ via the Qantas Travel Money mobile app or website.
- Select the currencies and amounts you wish to load.
- Complete the BPAY using the Biller code and Customer Reference Number that we’ve emailed to you.
Funds will be available within 2-3 business days.
Lock & Load. You have the option to lock in exchange rates3 on up to 10 loadable currencies4 — USD, GBP, EUR, THB, NZD, SGD, HKD, CAD, JPY and AED. Which means you have peace of mind knowing that you don’t need to worry about future rate fluctuations while you’re away.
Load AUD, spend worldwide. Headed to a country where we don’t offer a locked in rate? We’ve still got you covered - simply load Australian dollars and spend in the local currency of wherever you are.
Even though it is a prepaid card, remember to press ‘CREDIT’ when using Qantas Travel Money at merchants or ATMs.
Don’t use your Qantas Travel Money card as a security deposit for hotels as it may hold your funds for up to 30 days.
Transfer money between currencies, cash out your leftover funds into your Australian bank account, or transfer funds in real time to other Qantas Frequent Flyer members who have activated Qantas Travel Money Australia.
You can move money between any of our supported currencies - USD, GBP, EUR, THB, NZD, SGD, HKD, CAD, JPY, AED and AUD - using the Qantas Money app or website. Just select the currency you want to transfer from, enter the amount you’d like to transfer, then select the currency you want to transfer funds into. We’ll display the exchange rate and the amount of the new currency before you confirm your transfer, so you’ll always know your locked-in exchange rate3.
Card to card transfers

Your default currency
Your default currency is the currency that will be automatically loaded when you deposit directly from your bank account using Bank Transfer or BPAY®, rather than via the app or website where you can choose to load in up to 10 different foreign currencies.4
