Buy or Sell FX Cash through Travelex

ASB no longer buys and sells FX cash and has arranged for customers to obtain FX cash at preferential rates directly from Travelex. Use the ASB Promotion code of ASBTVX21 at www.travelex.co.nz to buy FX cash online (up to a maximum of NZ$10,000) and pick up from a Travelex store at the Airport. ASB customers can also buy or sell FX cash at a preferential rate at any Travelex store in NZ when presenting an ASB card.

Options to consider
