There’s a great big world out there just waiting to be explored. And whether you are looking to tick off your bucket list destinations, relax on a deserted island, or take your family to Disneyland, there’s a lot to consider when planning a holiday.
Researching and planning your trip can be half the fun. And with so much information available online, it has never been easier to find a great deal and read reviews before booking your holiday.
Once you have decided where to go, you might want to set a savings goal, make a savings plan or maximise your savings with a bonus saver account or term deposit.
Alternatively, you might want to seize the day and travel sooner by using a personal loan to help cover your travel expenses. To discuss a personal loan, contact us, book a Mobile Lender or visit a Service Centre.
Regardless of where you are travelling, you need to decide how you plan to pay for expenses along the way. Even if you pre-book your flights, accommodation and tours, you will still need spending money available for meals, tips, gifts and activities.
You should also consider your destination. Some countries might not offer easy or reliable access to ATMs or electronic payment terminals, while in others it might be unsafe and impractical to carry around large amounts of cash.
Given this, we offer a range of solutions including Visa cards and foreign currency options, to help take the stress of out your holiday.
Holidays don't always go as planned. You may encounter medical expenses, trip cancellations or lost luggage. You may even require travel insurance to be able to enter certain countries, or travel on some cruises or tours.
Contact us before you travel overseas so we can monitor your account more closely. You will also avoid transactions on your cards being stopped by us when we detect overseas purchases.
Please consult with a financial adviser for personal financial advice.
