Travel Cards, Money Transfers and Other Situations

Other Currencies

Banks aren’t necessarily synonymous with good exchange rates. But you’ll be surprised that in certain situations, you could be getting a better rate from the bank. If you are exchanging an uncommon currency, it is better to get it from a bank as they tend to have a larger stock of various currencies than money changers.

Banks available in Sunshine:

ANZ: 272 Hampshire Rd, Sunshine VIC 3020

CBA: Sunshine Plaza Shopping Centre, 1/324 Hampshire Rd, Sunshine VIC 3020

NAB: Ballarat Rd, Sunshine VIC 3020

Westpac: 312-320 Hampshire Rd, Sunshine VIC 3020

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 Egyptian Pound (EGP) or Malaysian Ringgit (MYR), an Australian bank may turn out to be the cheapest option.
