IMB offers a variety of products & services to help you when travelling overseas. From safe and convenient ways to carry or send cash overseas, to travel insurance or even a personal loan to give you some extra spending money!

If you’re lucky enough to be travelling overseas, we would suggest you take some local currency for the country you are visiting (in addition to a credit, debit or travel card). This will give you peace of mind when you arrive at your destination – you don’t have to immediately try to find an ATM, you have some local cash to pay for taxis, public transport and tips, and you won’t have to use your cards when you have concerns about card skimming or fraud.

In partnership with Travelex, IMB Bank offers you an extensive range of foreign cash. Travelex supplies foreign cash in more than 50 currencies, and for added convenience a choice of denominations is available for most currencies.  Orders will normally be delivered to your local branch within 48-72 hours (subject to location).

How to buy foreign currencies?

For a full list of currencies and to order your foreign currency, call us on 133 462, visit us at your nearest branch or enquire online.

Have leftover currency?

If you have any unused foreign banknotes when you come back from your trip, we will normally be able to convert them into Australian Dollars for you (subject to acceptability). Ask at any of our branches for more information.
