Easy Currency

It was easy to order foreign currency and the ability to have it delivered to home or a post office is great. The only downside was receiving high demonination currency when you are always looking for smaller denominations to use when you first arrive in a new city. Apart from that Travelex have always provided a good service.

Very satisfied customer!

As always, cash was ready when forecast. No commission buying online and always pleasant helpful staff when collecting currency. I appreciate the good spread of useful denominations rather than all high value notes. Thank you..

I placed my order quite late & phoned to see the collection time - the girl was extremely helpful & processed my order online asap, with a follow up phone call.

All went very well with our transaction except for an email titled money ready for collection - but when you read the email, the money was NOT ready for several days - a bit of a contradiction.

Travelex were great would always tell family and friends how easy it was, I did have a problem paying with my credit card though I had no idea it would be deemed as a cash advance on my card and I was charged a further $95 which upset me terribly as I had the funds in my bank account and could have used my Debit card but I was TOTALLY unaware and nothing during the transaction came up to inform me of this

I always use Travelex to buy foreign currency online using my own money and then have it delivered to a local store so I can pick it up. This service is hassle free and very convenient.

Works well

Online request and airport pickup went without a hitch. The only thing I would like to see added is the option to request currency denominations. That is, smaller value notes.

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.
