Money exchange reviews

Travel Money Oz Review

Some of the best service in city. Friendly, professional and no wait time. Reasonable rates, no fees and ID required for amounts over $1000.

Unimoni (formally UAE Exchange)

Friendly, professional, with some of the best exchange rates particularly for selling currency to them. There are bank limits for eftpos and photo ID is required.


The excellent range of products and currencies didn't make up for the average service. Their exchange rates are much better if you order online and pick up in-store.

ANZ Foreign Exchange

Long wait times for unresponsive service and uncompetitive exchange rates. Unfortunately this is the only FX centre left in the city for ANZ customers.

Commonwealth Bank

Service is slow, but helpful and friendly. Much like ANZ, their exchange rates are not great. If you are not a Comm Bank member, you need to set up a profile, which takes 10-15 minutes.
