We do not compare all available providers in the market. Our results are sorted by default from the lowest AUD cost to you to the highest AUD cost to you and you may choose to sort results according to other criteria. We may receive a referral fee if you choose one of these providers, but that won’t affect the ranking of the provider, the exchange rates or any fees you are charged.

Our most frequently asked questions

How does it work?

It’s pretty simple. Whether you want travel money or to transfer money overseas, we just need a little info to point you in the right direction. First you tell us what you’re looking for, then we compare hundreds of providers to find the best deal for your current situation. We’ll highlight all the available options and recommend the best one for you. You can decide which option you prefer and click through to their site to secure the deal.

Is it safe?

Yes. The Currency Shop holds an Australian Financial Services Licence (462269) and is a member of the Financial Ombudsman Service. We closely vet our providers and only partner with the largest, safest and most trusted money transfer companies in the world. That just makes sense.

What does it cost?

The Currency Shop does not charge you. Instead, we receive a referral fee from the banks and money transfer companies that we are partnered with. This does not affect the price you pay.
