The US dollar is one of the most dominant reserve currencies in the world and is also the main tender for several other countries or regions outside the United States, including the Caribbean, Ecuador and El Salvador.
Don’t be surprised to hear dollars being referred to as ‘bucks’ when you are out and about, this is a commonly used nickname! You may also hear 5 cent coins referred to as a ‘nickel’, a 10 cent coin as a ‘dime’ and a 25 cent coin as a ‘quarter’.
Tipping is standard practice across America and you will be expected to pay up to 15% on top of your meal – or even 20% for upmarket restaurants. Thankfully, portion sizes tend to be very generous indeed, so you’re unlikely to feel short-changed!

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

Japanese yen purchase
I purchased Japanese yen online for an upcoming trip. Always difficult to know how the costs compare. It was a straightforward purchase and the yen arrived at the designated PO at the designated time. I still wonder about being charged $10 to have it delivered to the PO - but I guess it was at least convenient.David
