compared to youtrip seems like no dormancy fees
What are the key benefits of RHB TravelFX Multi-Currency Card? 1. Travel smart without carrying large sums of cash
2. Avoid left over cash after your overseas trip
3. Stick within your travel budget without incurring additional fees for overseas purchases and ATM withdrawals
4. No annual fees or minimum fall-below fees
5. FAST fund transfers to your card wallet from any participating bank

Are the rates same as youtrip, I.e mastercard ?

The other day I looked at it I had better rates with RHB.

If ATM withdrawal no fee it could be very useful for ppl who are lazy like me to go money changer.

And in case I’m just short of small amt like $50 overseas I can top up and withdraw from ATM. If it was youtrip instead, I would pay 10%, or $5 for that withdrawal.

There’s popular currencies like usd , eur, aud supported.

I presume while queuing at the atm I can just convert required sgd into aud for example to enjoy free withdrawal when it is my turn ?

Agreed. So I will probably bring both cards overseas.

For supported currencies withdrawal definitely use RHB.

Even for non-supported currencies as long as my withdrawal amount is less than $277, which is at most $5 at 1.8% it will be more worth it than paying youtrip $5 or dbs $7.
