Hi @mckinj02, thanks for contacting us in regards to this. You can certainly use your MasterCard Debit card while travelling overseas. It may be a good idea to have a look at our Post 'How to use your card overseas' to get some tips and also understand some of the fees that may be charged. Please note that while you're overseas you'll need to press credit on the card as savings and cheque won't work.

Hello, opening this question again, 

I know I can use my credit card overseas as I have been travelling for 17 months. However Cuba is different.

They don't accept any credit cards affiliated with the US, is Bankwest or my Bankwest master card debit card associated with the United States? Thankyou

Hi @ClaireOverseas, thanks for your query. From my personal experience Cuba will not accept MasterCards, as they are a US Based provider. It would be best to check the Smart Traveller website for further details, and ensure that you have access to funds via another method. Hope this helps!
