Tips for getting the best deal when exchanging money

These simple tips could help you save money when exchanging foreign currency:

  • Check the mid-market rate. Use Google or a currency converter to find the current mid-market exchange rate. This will allow you to work out whether the rate a currency exchange bureau offers represents good value.
  • Compare your options. It's quick and easy to compare exchange rates online, so shop around for the best deal. However, be sure to check that the rate you're quoted online is the same one you'll get in-store.
  • Watch for hidden fees. Make sure you're aware of all the fees that apply to your transaction. These could include a flat fee, a percentage-based fee based on your transaction amount or an exchange rate mark-up.
  • Don't buy your currency at the airport. You'll be slugged with high fees and worse exchange rates when you exchange foreign currency at the airport, so look elsewhere.
  • Avoid using your credit card or foreign ATMs. Withdrawing money from a foreign ATM or paying with your credit card overseas may be convenient, but both of these options attract high fees and poor exchange rates.

      Hi Victoria,

      Thanks for getting in touch with Finder!

      You may refer to providers who can exchange your East Carribean for 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 our 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.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for your inquiry.

      Usually, you can easily convert USD to AUD through money exchange stores. However, since you have a check, this may not work.

      You have a few options. One is you simply proceed in depositing your USD cheque, then convert it to cash, and look for money exchange stores to convert it to AUD. Another thing you can do is open a multi-currency account, which allows you to quickly change your money into various currencies. Finally, you can approach your bank and ask them if they offer money exchange services.

      Be sure to take into consideration the exchange rate and fees before you go through the trasaction.

      Hope this information helped.

      Cheers,
      Rench
