How do I access my money when travelling overseas?
Police Credit Union recommends that you take a variety of currency options with you on your journey. We can arrange for foreign currency, ensure your Visa Card is current for the duration of your travel, and also offer you the convenience of a Cash Passport™ Platinum Mastercard® if you are visiting multiple destinations.
The most convenient way to access your accounts overseas is to use a Police Credit Union Visa debit or credit card or before you depart by arranging for a Multi-currency Cash Passport card with a PIN at an ATM facility. Using a Visa debit or credit card means you can also visit a local bank and withdraw money over the counter. There will be a fee for this service. Refer to our disclosure documents for more details.
All our Visa debit and Visa credit cards come embedded with a smart chip, making cards virtually impossible to copy and offering a new level of security against counterfeiting, card skimming and other fraudulent use. If you are travelling overseas and your current card does not have an embedded chip we recommend you contact us to update your card prior to travelling.
If you are travelling overseas, make sure you have advised us and that you’re signed up for Internet Banking so you can keep track of your accounts while you’re away.

It is free to download and free for transactions.

Why can’t I complete transactions by swiping my card?
As a means of significantly reducing the potential for fraudulent transactions to be undertaken on your account via the use of a counterfeit card, you will no longer be able to complete a transaction by swiping your card at electronic terminals that are chip enabled. All Police Credit Union cards are embedded with an EMV smart chip, which are virtually impossible to copy, and it has been mandated that all electronic terminals in Australia must now be capable of transacting via the use of these chips. Therefore, in order to complete your transaction, you simply need to insert your chip into the terminal and enter your PIN to authorise the transaction. Where the amount of your transaction is less than $100 you may also be able to complete the transaction by using payWave.
How do I activate my new, replacement and/or renewal cards?
All new, replacement and renewal cards from Police Credit Union will need to be activated before use. This is an easy process and you can do so using multiple channels. Find out how here.
Can I use my card without activating it first?
No, to improve your banking security it is imperative that you activate all your new cards before use.
