TravelWallet is a prepaid MasterCard that offers you the security and convenience of an ATM and payment card. You can swipe your card wherever you see the MasterCard sign. You can also withdraw money at any ATM bearing the Cirrus or MasterCard logo giving you access to your money wherever you are in the world, at any time. TravelWallet is available in euros, US Dollars, Pound Sterling and Australian dollars.

You can also register to get an SMS every time you use your card, allowing you to keep track of activity on your account. You also have access to a free online statement. To take advantage of these services, simply visit and click on TravelWallet account status.

With TravelWallet your money is safe. In the event of theft or loss, your card can be stopped and replaced as soon as you have reported it by calling our lost card call centre on 0800 020 600 from South Africa or +27 11 299 4114 whilst abroad.

You also have the assurance of a fixed interest exchange rate if you use the card in the same currency as that loaded on your card. If you run out of money whilst abroad, your TravelWallet card can easily be topped up. Should you want to use this service, simply make arrangements with a Standard Bank foreign exchange outlet before you leave on your trip.

Foreign notes
It's always useful to have a few foreign notes on hand when you arrive at your destination to pay for things like tips, taxi fares and refreshments. Foreign notes are widely accepted and at some destinations are the preferred method of payment. Foreign notes are available in most major currencies.

With these solutions to help you, the only thing on your mind should be your next adventure. For more information, visit or speak to a foreign exchange consultant at one of our foreign exchange or bureau de change outlets.
