All you need to know about what cards you need and where to exchange foreign cash
Some countries such as Japan are a cardless society and rely heavily on currency, often only accepting cash at shops and restaurants. You can order your foreign cash, including Japanese Yen online here. Allow 2-3 working days to pick up your foreign cash from your nearest branch.
Check foreign currency exchange rates
Currency exchange rates change daily. Make sure you keep track of your destination currency leading up to your trip to get the best rates.
Have you checked your cards’ credit limits and expiry dates? Make sure your credit limits suit your traveling budget, and renew your card if needed.
Some countries may require a 6 digit PIN when paying by card, though your PIN is only 4 digits. Simply enter ‘00’ at the start to make your PIN 6 digits. For example, 1234 would be 001234.
