Travel Cards, Money Transfers and Other Situations
If you need foreign exchange for less common currencies like Chinese Yuan (CNY) or South African Rand (ZAR), these stores can sometimes hold a limited stock and their exchange rates are less competitive. Contrary to popular belief, using an Australian bank to buy your overseas holiday cash isn't always the most expensive option. In fact, it can sometimes be the cheapest way to buy it.
Big 4 banks in Bankstown:
ANZ: Bankstown Central, Shop P1 Bankstown Shopping Centre, North Tce, Bankstown NSW 2200
CBA: 16/18 Bankstown City Plaza, Bankstown NSW 2200
Westpac: 38/40 Bankstown City Plaza, Bankstown NSW 2200
NAB: 402-410 Chapel Rd, Bankstown
To work out if a bank is the cheapest way to buy your currency, make sure you compare exchange rates.
Our Verdict: Exchange rates from banks for common currencies, such as the US dollar and Euro dollars aren't particularly competitive when compared to other currency exchanges. However, they can be the best option for other currencies such as the Chinese Yuan (also known as the renminbi) or the South African Rand.
