Must-sees in England

  • Brighton
  • Just 90 minutes from London, Brighton is a great little getaway from the hustle and bustle of the capital. It's a great little day trip and the chalk cliffs are a great photo-op.
  • Cotswolds
  • The Cotswolds are an area of rolling hills and quaint villages tucked away in the middle of England that are great for exploring and are full of places quintessentially British.
  • Oxford
  • If you're feeling particularly erudite, Oxford is another great day trip from London where you can explore one of the oldest institutions of higher learning (and the setting for many scenes in the Harry Potter movies).

Foreign Currency Purchases For Overseas Travel

Travelling overseas with the current low value of the Australian Dollar compared to other major currencies means that your costs can nearly double. Dealing with Travelex after making comparisons with other businesses offering foreign currency I found that I received a little more in my pocket with little or no fee involved in the transaction. Purchasing online was easy as was selecting where to pick up the foreign currency although there is a catch. To avoid fees via the payment method you will find that you have a waiting period before you can collect. With a little forward planning you can have the currency available when you arrive at the airport. On the other side of the coin they do provide the currency in a reasonable spread of denominations so your not purchasing a sandwich with a 100 dollar note.

Excellent service with good exchange…

Excellent service with good exchange rates and speed of delivery. One suggestion: Allow your purchase minimum limit of $500 AUD cover the sum of several denominations. For example, I wish to purchase Hong Kong Dollars and Dirham but the AUD cost for each denomination is less than $500; however, the total cost is more than $500 AUD.
