Should I pay in Australian dollars instead of the local currency when I’m overseas?

If you make a purchase or ATM withdrawal in a country where the local currency is the same as a currency on your Qantas Travel Money facility (e.g. using your US Dollar funds in the US) and you opt to pay in Australian Dollars, this may result in a foreign exchange transaction at additional cost to you as the card will seek to transact in Australian Dollars.

If you have funds loaded on your Qantas Travel Money facility in the currency of the country you are in, you can select to pay in the local currency to ensure that the transaction is taken from the correct currency loaded on your card. If the merchant gives you the option of paying in AUD please note that they will then determine the exchange rate used to convert your AUD to the local currency.
