Easy to purchase foreign cash.

Easy to purchase and pick up foreign cash from my local Travelex counter. I've found these guys to consistently offer better exchange rates, but only if you have some discount offer.

Ordering on line

It is much easier ordering on line, the only thing is when he confirmation of the order comes through there isn't enough time to print it out before the session closes, I was trying to check everything and each time the session closes before I had enough time to read through it

Mostly Good

In terms of loading or buying currency, it's quite straightforward and no more complicated than other leading cash cards. In terms of exchange rates, although competitive, Travelex does not offer the best rates for the major currencies I wanted. For the last 4 years, I've used 2 cards simultaneously, loading currencies with the best rates on each one. I would recommend Travelex utilise data analytics to determine what currencies their customers are buying, and then tailor an offer to them so that they can put all their business onto the one Travelex card without having to use competitor cards at the same time.

The order process was straightforward & the BPay option (avoiding fees) was appreciated. The rates offered were fair & I was kept well informed as the process ran it's course. There were several pick up options & that step was fairly painless.

Frequently asked questions

  • Why do currency conversion rates change?

    Currencies constantly move up and down against each other because they’re traded on financial markets. Market changes can be caused by supply and demand, as well as by political and economic events.

  • Is there a good time to convert currency?

    You can’t predict when exchange rates will go up or down, but our currency converter above will show you historical rates, to give you an idea of how the current conversion rate compares to the past few months or year. 

  • How do I convert my money?

    You can convert your dollars into over 45 currencies with Travelex, either online or at 120 stores across Australia. Got another question? Check out the rest of our FAQs.

  • How do you convert currencies?

    You can convert one currency into another using an exchange rate. For example, a money exchange rate of two Australian dollars to one British pound means that you could convert two Australian dollars into one British pound – or one pound into two Australian dollars. Pretty simple! In reality, you’ll get a slightly different exchange rate depending on whether you’re buying or selling a currency. To get to grips with the different kinds of exchange rate you might hear about, see our Currency Jargon section.

  • Why do different companies convert currencies at different rates?

    A company providing foreign currency needs to cover all of the costs that come from supplying people with currency. The cost of supplying foreign currency online is usually less compared to a physical retail store, so you’ll usually get a better rate online.
    If you leave exchanging money to the last minute before you depart, you’ll probably end up paying a little bit more, due to the costs involved in providing you this service, so it makes sense to plan ahead.
