3 ways Gocash will help you with your travel to India
Are you travelling to India, anytime soon?
DoesnÔÇÖt matter if you are an expat coming to visit your family, or a tourist, business traveller or an exchange student. Here are few things you must know.
India recently implemented demonetisation (the act of stripping a certain currency unit of its status) of its INR 500 and 1000 notes. This initiative by the Indian Government aims to eradicate serious issues such as black money, corruption, terrorism funding, and encourages financial inclusion. This gargantuan step into moving towards digital has been lauded by several countries across the world.
If you had planned on making a trip to India in the near future and feel lost with all this ÔÇ£cashlessÔÇØ situation, fret not! Equip yourself with a Gocash card which will benefit you in more (precisely 3) ways than one.
Gocash is a multi-purpose prepaid travel card with several advantages. Here are three ways in which this card will be of use to you during your travel to India:
1. Alternative to Debit/Credit, ATM Card
Every nook and corner of the country now insists on digital payments. A good debit/credit card will come handy. But if you donÔÇÖt have the time to apply for one, or arenÔÇÖt sure if itÔÇÖs safe to swipe your card everywhere, then Gocash card will come in handy. Make hotel bill-payments, ticket purchases, shopping transactions etc., with this card. You can also use the card to withdraw money from any MasterCard enabled ATMs across the world.
2. Save Money
Want to know how?
ItÔÇÖs simple. Gocash has a rate lock-in feature to empower its users to avoid exchange rate fluctuations during travel. For e.g. when you see a favourable INR exchange rate today, you can immediately load some value and lock the exchange rate. In future, when you are using the card to buy something or need to pay at a restaurant or store, you can use the INR at the rate locked-in today, even if the rates have risen during that time.
3. Safe and Secure
Gocash is secured with a Chip and PIN technology that provides enhanced protection for your card against counterfeiting and card fraud. This is because the embedded microchip is encrypted and impossible to replicate. Using your Gocash Chip and PIN card, every time you do a transaction at an ATM or merchant outlets, you will be prompted to enter your 4-digit PIN number. The transaction will be successful only if the PIN is entered correctly. This makes Gocash a very safe option for your travel related spending.
