Please tell me I won't have to busk for money in Mexico!

Going overseas in 4 and both by debit and credit card stopped working. Can I get a replacement or open a new account and get a card in time in Australia?

I've been thinking of moving away from my current bank but was going to put it off till after we got back from our holiday. But I tried to use my card in two separate shops yesterday and it didn't work. I can still get money out of ATM's but I'm a bit worried I'll land in Mexico and be unable to get my money!
Its the weekend here and I know the branches are closed. Is it realistic to get a replacement card from my current bank by Wednesday afternoon, or alternatively opening a new account and having a functioning card in that time in Australia?
