Hans is from Germany and is living in Australia for a year. During his stay, he plans on travelling Asia and New Zealand before returning back to Europe.
Hans is worried about how he would keep his money safe when he travels, and wasn’t sure how he could budget his spending properly while he was away. Being so far from home, he knew that he had to be careful.
He saw that the Travelex Multi-currency Cash Passport not only held Asian currencies such as THB, HKD and SGD but it also offered 24/7 Global Assistance. He visited one of the Travelex outlet stores to enquire and purchased one easily.
He could now begin to upload his hard-earned AUD onto his card and look forward to his upcoming trips, knowing he had his money safe and secure. If he were to get into any trouble though, there was always a helpful 24/7 Global Emergency Assistance team there.
