TRAVELEX has unveiled an updated version of the Travelex Money app for its customers in Australia and the United Kingdom.
The foreign exchange company partnered with meta-search provider Kayak to add a flight, stay and rental car hire search capability to the refreshed app, which also sports a new look and feel.
The digital solution also allows customers to order a Travelex Money Card prepaid card and have it delivered to their home or available for collection from a Travelex store in Australia.
Other new features include the ability to order foreign currency cash; view Travelex Money Card transactions and purchases
made from each currency wallet; and quickly check balances on Travelex Money Cards.
Customers can also now load and reload their Travelex Money Card with 10 currencies in Australia; freeze and unfreeze their card when they are not travelling; and view their PIN and card details if they have forgotten it, or left their card at home and need to use their details online.
The relaunched app also provides access to more than one million internet hotspots around the world via MasterCard’s Boingo wi-fi.
“Our customers are increasingly seeking a more streamlined, digital-first travel experience, and by integrating KAYAK’s services into our relaunched Travelex Money app, we can now offer them greater convenience and choice when planning their trip than ever before,” according to Travelex spokesman Dan Gilby.
“We continue to place an ever- growing emphasis on partner collaboration, modernising our operations and digitally transforming.”
