If you need foreign exchange for less common currencies like Singapore Dollars (SGD) or Candian Dollars (CAD), 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.

Main banks in Dandenong:

ANZ: Dandenong Plaza, 69/23-55 McCrae St, Dandenong VIC 3175

CBA: 260-262 Lonsdale St, Dandenong VIC 3175

Westpac: Dandenong Plaza, Shop 123-125, McCrae St, Dandenong St, Dandenong VIC 3175

NAB: 1 McCrae St, Dandenong VIC 3175

To work out if a bank is the cheapest way to buy your currency, make sure you compare exchange rates.

Our Verdict: When buying less common currencies like Colombian Peso (COP), an Australian bank may turn out to be the cheapest option.
