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 HiFX 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 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.

      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
