Amex Launches Global Travel Card!!

The new American Express® GlobalTravel Card launched in March this year, is now available in all Nedbank Foreign Exchange outlets across South Africa.

The card is available to both Nedbank clients and non-clients who are looking for a safe and convenient means of taking their foreign currency on an international trip. This is also the first card-based prepaid currency product to be added to Nedbank’s forex product portfolio.  

The card is a reloadable prepaid travel card available in three currencies – US dollar, euro and pound sterling.

According to Ian Barrable, American Express director global payment options, South Africa the GlobalTravel Card comes with travel-friendly features such as Global Assist service and 24-hour customer service. In addition, the card locks in the rate on the loaded currency, so travellers avoid fluctuations that may impact their travel budget.

Card members also get a free backup card at purchase, and should their card be lost or stolen, they are provided with a free card replacement and access to emergency cash. Additionally, all travellers choosing the American Express GlobalTravel Card are able to enjoy American Express’ exclusive card member events and special merchant offers overseas i.e. via the American Express Selects(SM) programme.

Until December 31, 2013, the regular purchase fee of R100 for the American Express GlobalTravel Card is being waived by American Express and Nedbank.
