Travel Cards, Money Transfers and Other Situations
Don't assume you can't get a good exchange rate because you're using a bank. In some cases you'll end up saving on your currency exchange. Particularly when you're exchanging exotic currencies, banks generally have better rates than money changers. Common currencies in Australia are USD, NZD, JPY and EUR. For all other currencies, they are harder to come by which makes them more expensive to get through money changers.
