Travel Cards, Money Transfers and Other Situations
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.
The banks available in Parramatta:
ANZ: 219 Church Street or at the mall
CBA: Corner of George and Church Street or shop 3050 at the mall
Westpac: Corner of George and Church Street or 126 Church Street
NAB: 28 George Street or at the mall
Bank of Queensland: 354 Church Street

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 such as Omani Rial (OMR), an Australian bank may turn out to be the cheapest option.

Can I buy a Travel Money Card in Parramatta?
