According to my mum, travel makes the world go round — she gets her aphorisms a little jumbled up, sure, but you get what she’s trying to say.
But you know what also famously (and more popularly used as a saying) makes the world go round? Money. Therefore, in my scientific estimate, it seems that you need money for travel — and more money equals more travel.
The good folks at Travel Money Oz, along with the help of their co-captains at Flight Centre, know this and are celebrating the return of international holidays with a giveaway. They have four $2,500 gift cards up for grabs: here’s how you can nab one.
If you didn’t know, Travel Money Oz is part of Flight Centre’s mission to unravel travel and make your trips as easy as possible. They offer the Travel Money Oz Currency Pass, a card that can be preloaded with up to nine foreign currencies and then used across the world wherever Mastercard is accepted†. Whenever you load money, you also lock in the exchange rate of that day*, meaning that no matter what fluctuations the market has in store, you know just how many Pounds or Yen you have for your trip. (There’s nothing worse than seeing that the AUD is down mid-trip and realising you now have a few hundred less Euros to play with, trust me.)
Basically, if you head to a Flight Centre store between 31 March – 28 April 2022 and load a Currency Pass with foreign currency, you’ll go into the draw to win 1 of 4 Flight Centre Gift Cards, with one up for grabs each week. But even if you don’t win, it’s worth entering: if you load the equivalent of $1000+ AUD into a foreign currency on the card, you’ll get $40 off^. After all, travel makes the world go round! Right, mum?
