Airline Virgin Australia has teamed up with Visa to add a pre-paid travel money card that can be loaded with multiple currencies to its frequent flyer membership scheme.
The Oz airline's Global Wallet will let its Velocity Frequent Flyer members load funds onto their card and store it in multiple foreign currencies as well as Australian dollars.
Travellers can use the contactless card at 30 million Visa locations around the world and withdraw cash at two million ATMs, with any purchases earning Velocity frequent flyer points.
Neil Thompson, CEO, Velocity Frequent Flyer, says: "We are delighted to unveil the Global Wallet in partnership with Visa. This new prepaid innovation encapsulates Velocity Frequent Flyer's proposition as a multi-faceted program that pushes traditional boundaries."
