Traveling again is a fantastic feeling, but it comes with setbacks.
How many of us have run into the inevitable problem of having too many currencies and not enough room in our wallets?
Gone are the days of getting to keep the funny-looking coins and bills as souvenirs; these days, we just have to stuff them back into our wallets and hope they don’t get lost somewhere along the way.
Thankfully, thanks to technology, we don’t necessarily need to carry physical currency anymore – at least when we’re running out of space.
Instarem has just released its new multi-currency wallet, which allows you to hold, convert and manage multiple currencies with ease! In this article, we’ll tell you all about the new wallet and how to use it!
What is a multi-currency wallet?
If you’re like most people, you probably have several different currencies in your wallet. You may have Sing dollars, Euros and British pounds all jumbled together. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to manage all of those currencies without having to carry them around in your pocket?
That’s basically what the multi-currency wallet is for. It’s an online wallet that takes it up a few notches by giving it international roaming capabilities – that’s right, you can now store multiple currencies all at once! Goodbye exorbitant exchange charges, hello financial flexibility on your travels!
The best part about this you can lock in favourable exchange rates with a few taps of your finger, switch between currencies as if it was no big deal, and even make payments effortlessly.
This means that you can play the money exchange game without taking a hefty hit in the wallet.
So, if you’re the kind of person who’s always on the go and loves to explore new places, then a multi-currency wallet should definitely be your best buddy!
Wait… is this different from the amaze wallet I know?
It’s still the same wallet, just with expanded functions.
Here at Instarem, we get that your hard-earned money is best spent when YOU have control. That’s why we’ve gone above and beyond to create a system designed to give you ultimate freedom – locking-in favourable rates, with payment options available on your travels.
Alongside linking with Mastercard and local credit/debit cards, you can now convert Singapore Dollars into EUR, JPY, GBP, AUD, CHF and NZD.
Still confused? Don’t worry! You just need to remember that your wallet can hold up to four different types of currencies at once with a maximum top-up value of SGD 3,000*.
But with such great power comes great responsibility – so make sure you keep an eye out for the best rates because, at Instarem, we only want what’s best for you!
