Banks push pre-paid traveller’s cards

Travelex Australasia said an unnamed major bank would begin to market the Travelex pre-paid travel cards from the September quarter. BankWest has also begun selling the Travelex pre-paid travel cards. The cards are an alternative to the conventional traveller’s cheque. Travelex also said it was in discussions with Bank of Queensland over the outsourcing of its travel money services.
