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.

Banks in Geelong:

ANZ: 83 Malop St, Geelong VIC 3220

CBA: 96-102 Malop Street, Geelong VIC 3220 (located in Market Square Shopping Centre)

NAB: 87-89 Separation St, Geelong North VIC

Bendigo Bank: 235 Ryrie St, Geelong VIC 3220

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 the South African Rand (ZAR), an Australian bank may turn out to be the cheapest option.
