Cash Passport

As a globe-trotter, you know travelling with a non-chip & PIN card is extremely difficult, especially in Europe where merchants have come to rely heavily on this technology in the seven years since it was first rolled out. Well now it doesn’t have to be thanks to new functionality within the “Cash Passport” to reduce your exposure to fraud and ensure greater compatibility with a wide range of overseas merchants. The latest EMV chip & PIN technology is now built into all new “Cash Passport” cards, changing the way you pay and providing freedom to use the Cash Passport for every point of sale and ATM transaction. So the new Cash Passport now requires a PIN authorisation to complete a transaction and still includes the traditional magnetic strip for those merchants not using the technology (when you aren’t overseas).
