Japan is one of the fastest-growing destinations for Aussie travellers, and with the upcoming Rugby World Cup and Olympic Games, the country is set to receive even more attention.

Surprisingly, despite it being such a high-tech country, cash is still king in Japan and we would suggest travellers take the bulk of their spending money in Japanese Yen cash.  In particular, many ATMs in Japan do not accept credit, debit and ATM cards which are issued outside of Japan.  (The main exceptions are postal ATMs, found at approximately 20,000 post offices, and 7-Bank ATMs, found at approximately 20,000 7-Eleven convenience stores.)

Thanks to our partnership with Travelex, you can order Japanese Yen cash at Laboratories Credit Union, with orders normally delivered within 48-72 hours. Keep in mind also that if you have any unused Yen banknotes when you come back from your trip, we can convert them back into Australian Dollars for you (subject to acceptability).

No matter where you may be travelling, we generally recommend you take some local cash for arrival at your destination overseas.  With a choice of over 50 currencies available, Laboratories Credit Union is here to help with your travel money needs.

Highlight: ATMs in Japan that DO accept cards issued outside Japan include: postal ATMs, found at approximately 20,000 post offices, and 7-Bank ATMs, found at approximately 20,000 7-Eleven convenience stores.
