Case Study

Harry is Australian and banks with St. George. He has booked a trip to the USA with his friends and noticed that St. George has a Travel Card exclusively open to existing customers.

When Harry goes abroad, he usually converts his AUD into cash, but there has been occasions where he has lost money from his wallet and had to consequently draw out more, and incurring those pesky charges. When he researched about the St. George Global Currency card, he found out that he could easily apply online with no purchase or loading fee. He could simply convert his AUD into USD for his trip, and avoid ATM withdrawal charges abroad.

He could also have top security with the automatic back-up card provided with a separate PIN. That way, if he ever lost his card he was still secure and safe.
