Case Study

Lola goes on skiing holidays up to 3 times a year, either in New Zealand, Japan or Canada. Every time she leaves, she buys her currency in cash and sometimes when it runs out, she uses her Debit card abroad.

Lola became increasingly frustrated with being subject to the charges of exchange rate fluctuations and overspending her AUD while abroad.

What Lola didn’t know was that Suncorp offered a Cash Passport that avoided all exchange rate fluctuations, as well as having unlimited reloads – handy if she ever bought too many beers after the slopes! She could pay with ease via the Cash Passport app for her skiing activities, as well as hotels and dining knowing that her budget was protected.
