BookMyForex.com announced the launch of a co-branded Multi-Currency Forex Travel Card in partnership with YES BANK and Visa to offer a seamless experience to Indian overseas travelers on August 21. Customers will now be able to buy Forex Travel Cards at the click of a button on the BookMyForex platform and get free doorstep delivery across major cities in India. Further, to promote the sale of forex travel cards over forex currency notes, BookMyForex will offer Zero-Margin or exact Inter-Bank rates 24×7 on Forex card sales. BookMyForex is also offering new age and increasingly popular contactless cards that allow a user to simply tap their card on a POS terminal, a must-have feature in countries such as the UK where some merchants only allow contactless payments.

We shall soon be launching several new variants of this card that will allow never-before features.

Murali Nair, VP and Head of Business Development — India at Visa said, “People who travel overseas and to different countries often have to manage multiple currencies in cash and worry about the threat of loss or theft. They can now travel and use these cards in any part of the world without worrying about their money’s safety.”
