Case Study

Nicola has banked with Bendigo for over five years. She is Australian but visits Rome once a year to see her best friend who emigrated there four years ago. 

Nicola had heard of the benefits you could get through being a Cash Passport holder from her friends, but didn’t realise that her bank offered the Bendigo Cash Passport exclusively to existing customers. When withdrawing money one day, she decided to enquire. 

She wanted an easy and secure way of managing her money while she was in Rome, and found that through getting a prepaid travel card through her bank, she could easily transfer her AUD funds into EUR on her card – perfect for when they wanted to have a few cocktails by the Coliseum!

Nicola didn’t have to worry about the safety of her cash either – she knew it was secure. She could easily view her balance and transaction history online too, keeping her worry-free while she was abroad.
