If you need foreign exchange for less common currencies like Thai Baht (THB) or Indonesian Rupiah (IDR), 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.
