Citibank currency exchange: What to know

What we like

  • Instant transfers between Citibank accounts. As a global bank, you can make instant transfers to overseas Citibank accounts in over 15 countries.
  • Flexible account options. The Citibank Plus account lets you make instant international payments to eligible Citibank accounts without any transfer fees. Meanwhile, the Citi Global Currency Account can hold up to 10 different currencies, cut international transfer fees and even earn interest on AUD balances.

What to watch out for

  • Uncompetitive exchange rates. Citibank adds a larger margin to exchange rates than specialist money transfer services typically do.
  • Fees apply. Different fees can apply in different circumstances. Compared to dedicated international money transfer services, it can be more difficult to ensure you've accounted for all possible fees.
