Sending money with Westpac: What to know

What we like

  • Multi-currency options. Westpac has potential money-moving alternatives, such as multi-currency travel cards.
  • Foreign cash and bank drafts. You can also get foreign cash and bank drafts at Westpac.

What to watch out for

  • Restricted features. Limit orders and forward contracts are for business customers only.
  • Uncompetitive fees and rates. Westpac's fees are high, and its exchange rates are poor compared to what money transfer specialists offer.
