Hi @geeringj, at Bankwest we actually only have Mastercard debit cards available. You can use these anywhere that accepts Mastercard. Thanks

Thank you for your reply - just to check, I can use my mastercard debit card that i use here over there?

Also, could you tell me the best way to go about getting some Japanese money before I go?

 

Thank you,

Jen

You sure can @geeringj, just make sure you select the "credit" option when you're overseas, as "cheque" and "savings" will only work within Australia.

 

You can order foreign cash to pick up from Bankwest stores online. You can view the details here: https://www.bankwest.com.au/personal/international/foreign-exchange

Hello,

I am trying to order some cash online as per a link given in this forum

I would however like to collect it from the Miranda branch in Sydney, howeve it does not seem possible to be able to do this.

As I am working full time, I am unable to go in to the city to collec the money. Can you suggest the best way for me to get this cash through travelex?

 

Kind regards,
Jennifer

There is a limited number of stores that the funds can be collected from @geeringj, in NSW I believe it is only the George Street store.
