Foreign Notes

Having foreign currency when travelling abroad is always useful, as their might be times when using a cash passport or travellers cheques isn’t possible, but you should avoid carrying all your foreign notes with you at the same time as the last thing you want is for your money to go missing. If you wish to sell foreign currency notes back to the banks, you can, but the same fees apply as shown below.

Bank fee calculator

At Wheretobank.co.za, we recommend that when travelling abroad you take a combination of cash passports, foreign currency or travellers cheques just to minimise the risk of you being stranded somewhere without access to funds. Also don’t keep all your money in one place.

FNB - Credit Card Fraud on a card i hadn't received yet

I upgraded my credit card and fraud happened on the card that was still with the couriers and they had linked my cheque card to that card as well and transactions were done also from the cheque account. My question was who linked my cheque card to a credit card that i hadn't received yet and i was given lousy excuses, no apology from the bank what so ever. I then decided to closed both my cheque account and credit card and I want nothing to do with the bank anymore. They might have the best self service channels but their contact centre sucks. bad service, consultant drop calls and are very rude. I wonder if tehy listen to their calls or if they have Quality Assurance. But hey i'm happy with the bank i choose after them. They treat me like i'm their only customer.
