  • How do I convert foreign currency into Australian dollars?

    It’s easy! Just come into any Travelex store with your leftover currency and one of our team will buy your leftover banknotes at whatever our current buy-back rate is for that currency.

  • Where can I check the buy-back rates?

    Each store has their own buy-back rate so it’s best to either go into your nearest store, or give them a call to find out what the buy-back rate is at that time. Keep in mind this can change regularly throughout the day. Also remember when checking FX to AUD rates online these are usually the market rates which are not available to customers which is why our rates differ.

  • Do you accept foreign coins?

    No, unfortunately we do not accept foreign coins; however, there are plenty of things you can do with your leftover foreign currency coins! (see FAQ below)

  • Which charities collect foreign coins?

    Anyone with leftover foreign coins can donate them to our ‘Currency for Kids’ initiative. This initiative is a commitment by Travelex to help the Starlight Children’s Foundation to grant 10 wishes for seriously ill and hospitalised children and young people.

  • What can I do with my leftover foreign currency coins?

    Many charities accept foreign coins. Many airlines and airports also have collection boxes or envelopes where you can donate your coins. Otherwise you can keep them for your next trip, give them to family and friends travelling to that destination, or simply keep them as mementos from your trip!

  • What condition do my banknotes need to be in?

    We cannot accept banknotes that are torn, faded or have been sticky taped.

  • Do you accept old or discontinued foreign banknotes?

    We can only accept foreign currency banknotes which are current legal tender.
