The Brazilian real is the official currency of Brazil and is abbreviated as BRL. One ‘real’ is made up of 100 centavos. The Brazilian real used today was introduced back in 1994; when introduced it was pegged against the US dollar at an exchange rate of 1:1. It uses a dollar-like symbol with the exception being that it has two vertical lines instead of one.
A bit of a difficult one to pronounce, it is actually pronounced "hey-al". The plural of the real is reais and is pronounced "hey-ice".
The most commonly used denominations are: R$2, R$5, R$10, R$20, R$50, R$100.
What to spend your real on:
3 course meal for 2
1.5l Bottle of water
Postcard and a stamp
One-way Ticket on Local Transport

Efficient service; good range of denominations of money. Thought $10 charge for PO collection a bit high, though overall cost better than my BankDavid P

My experience with Travelex
I used both TravelEx options for my currency purchase. I loaded our Cash Cards online, which was a seamless process. It looked like it was going to be a long drawn out process, but it ended up being relatively painless. The instructions were clear and I had no complaints. I received confirmation emails, and the funds were on my card the next morning. My cash (Euro) was done at the Rundle Mall (Adelaide) office, which I like to do face to face. I phoned ahead and was warmly greeted by "Rohan" who asked how much I needed so he could reserve my purchase. I visited the store in the afternoon and Rohan was on hand to serve me with a courteous greeting. He was extremely helpful, efficient and knowledgeable. The transaction was completed with Rohan asking if I would like the cash in an envelope, that ended up being a plastic resealable bag, which was a nice gesture, and a professional touch. All-in-all my experience with TravelEx (online and at Rundle Mall) was first rate.Michael John Pearce
I would recommend Travelex for getting foreign cash. The ability to pick up from an Australia Post Office in my area was convenient. The fee for post office pick up and the credit fee adds to the exchange costs.ANTHONY
