The details

You can collect stamps for both cash and bank account send transactions. The next time you need to send money overseas, why not check if you can send your funds directly to a bank account* using MoneyGram? Once you've received your loyalty card, be sure to keep it in your wallet or purse so you don't miss out on collecting a stamp when you send money using MoneyGram!

To start saving, pick up your loyalty card in a Travel Money NZ store.

How do I send money?

Never used the MoneyGram service before? Not to worry – it's super easy and takes no time at all! Firstly, find out where your nearest store is located, as you will need to get in touch with a Travel Money NZ consultant. Simply head on over to the store, bringing the money you need to send and either your passport, driver’s licence or national identification card. You will also be required to provide proof of address (bank statement or utility bill).

You can complete your transaction in 3 easy steps:

Fill in all of the details on the form, and give it to your consultant.

Provide the money you want to send, plus the transaction fee, to your consultant, along with your ID. This will allow them to process your order.

Once your order has been processed, you will be given a receipt and a transaction reference number. For your own records, we recommend keeping both (there’s nothing worse than losing track of your finances). Just share the reference number with the person you are sending the money to so they can pick it up on their end.

And you're done – wasn't that easy?

How do I receive money?

MoneyGram is a two-way street. Receiving an international transfer from friends or family via MoneyGram is just as easy and convenient as sending one to them.

Once your friend or family member has completed the transaction at their nearest MoneyGram location, all they need to do is send you the reference number so you can pick up the money on your end.

When you go to pick up your money, be sure to bring along your passport, driver’s licence or national identification card with you. By providing your reference number and ID, you can complete the “receive” form in store and access your money in a matter of minutes.

Once everything has been verified, you’ll receive your money in New Zealand dollars.

Can I send money to a bank account?

If you’re sending money to India, China, Sri Lanka or the Philippines from New Zealand, yes you can!

Visit your nearest Travel Money NZ store, bringing your money and ID with you, and fill in the send form, selecting "Account Deposit" as the receive option.

Also make sure you bring the bank name, the name on the account, the account number and a mobile number for the recipient.

Once your transaction has been processed by our consultant, you’ll receive a receipt and reference number. The recipient will be able to check their bank account to ensure they’ve received the money.

How long does it take to transfer money?

This will depend on a range of factors, including the recipient’s banking institution and the destination country. Some cash transfers can be received in under an hour, whereas others may not appear until the following day.

If you need to send or receive money urgently, your local Travel Money NZ store will be able to give you an estimate for how long your transfer will take. We know time is of the essence when it comes to international transfers, and we’ll do everything we can to get your money to its destination as quickly as possible.

Why transfer money?

People need money transfer services for all kinds of reasons, but these are some of the most common: 

Moving overseas? Need to send some money to your new home so you have the finances to sustain yourself while setting up a bank account? MoneyGram can help you with this too!

Is your favourite niece or nephew having a birthday? Maybe you want to send money home for Ramadan, Diwali or Christmas? MoneyGram can help you transfer money overseas for any special event or celebration.

Does your family live overseas? You may need to send money home to pay for bills, mortgage or rental payments, school fees, or other debts. Your family could need school uniforms, have medical expenses or require a little extra money for groceries. Regardless of why you need to provide your family with financial assistance, MoneyGram can ensure the money gets to them quickly and securely.
