Finding a better rate online

Companies such as Western Union and Moneygram give you the convenience of sending money overseas in just minutes.

If you have time, consider using an alternative foreign exchange service so you can find yourself a better rate. Companies such as OFX and WorldRemit operate online only and can give bank-beating foreign exchange rates.

Compare international money transfer companies.

Travelex and some financial institutions have locations where you can change money at T1 Perth International. An ATM withdrawal can also be another way to get Aussie dollars if you’ve just arrived in the country. It’s always best to shop around and there’s more choice in the Perth CBD.

    I have eastern Caribbean dollies which I would like to change into Australian dollars. Is there any were in Perth that can do this?

      Hi Victoria,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder!

      Here is a page that shows providers to exchange your Carribean dollars to Australian Dollars. To know their location in Perth, you can visit their website and check their branch locator if available.

      International transfer fees vary by transfer provider, your transfer method, where you’re sending your money, how much you’re sending and how you’re paying for it. You can refer to this page as it provides tips on finding the best exchange rates. Also, read through the transfer process of the provider such as transfer fees, transfer options and transfer speed to set expectations for the receiver. Take note of any reference or tracking numbers should any transaction delays come up during the transit. Hope this helps and feel free to message back if you have other questions.

      Best,
      Nikki

    I have a check in USD and want to get it converted to AUD into my bank account, where is the best place to do this in Perth.

      RenchJune 1, 2017Staff

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      You can deposit the cheque into your regular transaction account, although you may be hit with a range of fees. If you will deposit the cheque into a multi-currency account, there will be fees, but you may get a better exchange rate. Here’s a page where you can compare and search for multi-currency accounts.

      Hope this information helped.

      Cheers,
      Rench
