Doing your banking this festive season

This festive season, we've made banking easy, so you can focus on the good stuff. All the info you'll need, including our contact centre and branch hours or operation, as well as important information on scheduled payments, can be found in one place.

step 1

Before you go

If you’re intent on travelling with just one form of payment, such as a Greater Bank low rate credit card, there are some checks you should make before you arrive at the airport.

  1. Let Greater Bank know of your travel plans. This way, we’re aware that it’s you buying a round of drinks in Thailand, not suspect activity to be concerned about.
  2. If you haven’t in a while, update your contact details with us. This will ensure we can communicate with you easily if you experience issues with your credit card.
  3. Know your PIN. Signatures are accepted in less and less places abroad, and not everywhere will offer Visa payWave yet. Contact us about your PIN if you need a gentle reminder. ;-)
  4. Make sure your card expiry date isn’t set to pass while you’ll be away.
step 2

Ease & Security

By travelling with a Greater Bank Visa Credit Card, you’re able to take advantage of a range of helpful services to make your vacation easier.

  1. Visa payWave

    For purchases under $100, simply tap and go when paying at participating merchants. Perfect for when the tour bus is leaving and you’re grabbing a last minute souvenir.

  2. Visa Checkout

    Store your card details with Visa, and make payments online quickly and securely just by entering your username and password.

  3. Security

    You enjoy the peace of mind that comes with Greater Bank being part of the Visa Global Network, with millions of accepted locations worldwide.

step 3

Meet your commitments

If you rely on your credit card to meet your commitments, this doesn’t need to change just because you’re away from home.

Just log onto Greater Bank’s Internet Banking and set up Credit Card Regular Payments for your bills in minutes. This way, you can set and forget, and focus on making the most of your vacation.

step 4

Be safe

  1. Register your plans

    As well as checking in with Greater Bank, it’s always a great idea to register your travel plans with smartraveller.gov.au and stay up to date with the latest government travel warnings

  2. Right cover

    The great thing about globe-trotting is that the possibilities seem endless. Unfortunately, this is a double edged sword. To give yourself peace of mind, be sure to get the right Travel Insurance to suit your needs and budget. Whether you plan to bungee jump and skydive, or lay on the beach sipping mojitos, it feels great to be covered.

step 5

Need a backup?

If just one payment option isn’t your style, Greater Bank can help with a range of handy options at foreign checkouts.

  1. Foreign Cash

    Arrive like a local and start spending anywhere by purchasing foreign cash through Greater Bank. Choose from over 65 currencies through our partner, American Express.
