A deep dive on yuan renminbi

The name 'renimbi' literally means 'peoples currency'. It's the legal currency of mainland China.



It's easily exchanged in Hong Kong and Macau but it's not the official currency there.

I started off at four stars and that's because I haven't actually used the card overseas or seen what that's like if I run into hassles, or have to use the website in a foreign country. The customer service was good and getting the card accurately loaded with the currencies and the amounts I wanted was seamless. Thanks.

I got a refund and I didn’t even realised I had overpaid. The lady was friendly and efficient at kotara. I visited the Charlestown store recently and she wasn’t as helpful. They had run out of envelopes so that was annoying, overall had a good experience. Thanks
