What are the benefits of a Forex Card?

Today, Forex Cards are one of the most reliable and affordable options to carry money when travelling abroad. But these travel cards offer a lot more than just a way to pay.

Here are some of the key Forex Card benefits:

  • Purchase a card as early as 60 days before your trip or just a day before travel. Your bank can activate a card within a few hours after receiving the funds
  • One of the important Forex Card benefits is that they protect you from fluctuations in foreign currency prices, as rates are locked when the currency is loaded in the card
  • Carry multiple currencies in a single card like the HDFC Bank Multicurrency ForexPlus Card
  • Make online purchases and transactions when abroad, without additional charges
  • Get easy access to your transaction details and balance in the Forex Card through PhoneBanking, Prepaid NetBanking and SMS
  • Reload your card any number of times within the validity period online through PhoneBanking and Prepaid NetBanking
  • Get emergency cash delivery within a few hours if you lose your card so that you are not left stranded
  • Your card comes with free insurance against theft, loss of card and misuse. Some banks also provide insurance cover in case of loss of baggage, personal documents and accidental death
  • Track your transactions and spends through Prepaid NetBanking and SMS
  • Some cards like the Regalia ForexPlus Card can be used across the globe with zero cross-currency charges.
  • Many of the cards are now contactless, which means you can just tap and pay. This is a safer way to pay because the card never needs to leave your hand.
  • Banks like HDFC Bank offer 24x7 concierge services. These services help in referring you to hotels, car rentals and medical service providers, as well as assist you if you lose your passport, luggage, etc.
  • Travel in style with complimentary lounge access to airports in India and abroad
  • If you have a problem with your card, get 24x7 assistance globally
