Back of GlobalTravel card

By taking a few simple precautions, you can ensure that
your travel funds are safe.

  • Read Your Card Envelope

    Depending on the Authorised Seller where you purchase the Card, you may be required to activate your Card. Check your Card envelope prior to your journey and follow the instructions. Once activated, your funds will be available the next business day.

  • Sign the Back of Your Card

    Immediately sign the back of your Card when you
    receive it. Keep your Backup Card in its original
    packaging and store it separately.

  • Remember or Reset Your Pin

    Memorise your Card PIN, or call Customer Service
    to change it to something more memorable.

  • Create an Online Account

    Register your Card online, so you can easily check
    your Card balance and transaction history. Simply click on Register Your Card.
