Updated: Jul 1, 2022

Now that international borders have reopened (about time!), you can finally visit those exotic destinations that you’ve spent the past two years drooling over on social media.

Travel gives us our fondest memories, our greatest stories, and countless learnings. However, a money problem can ruin an otherwise perfect getaway.

Ask any traveller and they’ll always have the same questions — Can I use my card overseas? How much money should I bring? How much are the additional charges? What if I run out of money?

BigPay has the solution to all your questions. Read on to find out why.

1. You can use it anytime, anywhere

Your BigPay account comes with a Visa card which gives you access to over 45 million merchants worldwide. Use it anywhere in the world, online and offline.

2. Real-time exchange rates

Say goodbye to confusing money changers. With the BigPay card, you’ll pay real-time exchange rates and nothing else. Whether it’s paying for your hotel, shopping or dinner, just transact with your BigPay card to automatically pay in the local currency of your travels according to the exchange rate at the time of purchase.

3. Withdraw money anywhere

Use your BigPay card to withdraw money from your BigPay account through any ATM overseas that accepts Visa transactions. No need to queue at the money changer.

4. Instant money transfers

Need money in an emergency while you’re travelling? Transfer money instantly, completely free of charge, between two BigPay users.

5. It’s safe

If you’ve lost your card while travelling or encountered potential fraud, use the BigPay app to instantly freeze your card. A quick tap is all it takes.

6. Earn points

Earn airasia points every time you spend with your BigPay card, regardless of currency! Use these points to redeem major discounts on AirAsia flights and rewards later.

7. Track your expenses

Worried about overspending on holiday? The BigPay app automatically tracks and categories all your expenses beautifully on one screen, so you can see how your budget is doing.

8. 24/7 support

Have a question about your BigPay account while travelling? Our friendly customer support team is available 24/7 through the in-app chat to assist you, no matter what timezone you’re in.

9. Save big time

Top up your BigPay account with your credit card to save more on your holiday. Your first RM1,000 top-up is on us and any subsequent top-ups will incur a small fee. You’ll save tons on expensive credit card fees and high bank exchange rates!

The best part? BigPay is 100% free to get and free to keep. Sign up in as little as 5 minutes to enjoy the perfect solution to your travel needs.
