How to Find a Better Exchange Rate at Darwin Airport
Currency Exchange at Darwin Airport
There are two ways you can change money:
1. Order your currency ahead of time and pick it up at the airport
This is by far, the cheapest way to buy currency at Darwin airport. The exchange rates are much better than buying it over the counter.
It's really easy:
- Order your currency online and choose a pick up location as Darwin Airport
- Pay for it using BPAY (and avoid the card fee!)
- Pick up your ordered currency
Please keep in mind, you'll avoid the card fee if you choose BPAY. The rate is locked in on the day you book the transaction. You can choose your pick up date but if you use BPAY, you'll need to allow at least 3 business days.
