We’re always monitoring to see which banks and financial institutions are addling Google Pay support (check out the complete list here), but today we noticed a card with a slight difference, it’s primarily a debit travel card.
TransferWise in an Australian based “borderless digital bank”. The company specialises in low cost currency transfer and conversion primarily for travel and expats. Chris has been using TransferWise since it became available, and can’t speak highly enough about its ease of use overseas.
That said, we’re not here to advice on the financial side of their offering. That said, I have long wanted a travel card that I could use in Google Pay. Having to carry cash is archaic, and carrying plastic cards almost as much, but having a travel money card in my Google Pay is just amazing.
Despite the fact that tap to pay is not ubiquitous everywhere internationally, and in some countries it really is cash or nothing, in many shops the OPTION of Google Pay would be great. This mightn’t be so useful in the US – which seems to avoid tap and pay in many places – but throughout Europe it’s a blessing.
Now with the TransferWise Debit MasterCard you can have that option. If you’ve been looking for a Google Pay compatible travel card, why not check it out.
