ANZ Exchange Rate Calculator
ANZ offers different foreign exchange rates depending on what you need to do, but it can be confusing. Use the calculator below and find out what your exchange rate will be when you buy/sell foreign currency in cash, transfer money overseas or receive money into your ANZ account.
ANZ Exchange Rates Explained
When you look at the ANZ exchange rate table, it’s easy to get confused. This is because exchange rate you receive will depend on a few things:
- The currency you need
- If you want to buy or sell the currency
- The type of transaction. Do you need foreign currency in cash or are you transferring money overseas to another bank account?
How the ANZ exchange rate table works:
First, work out which exchange rate column relates to your situation.
- Buy Foreign Cash: If you need to buy foreign currency in cash (notes and coins)
- Sell Foreign Cash: If you need to sell foreign currency in cash (notes and coins)
- Send Money: If you need to transfer money from Australia to another bank account overseas
- Receive Money: If you need to receive money into your ANZ bank account from overseas
Next, you need to find the right currency code. Each line in the table relates to a different currency. For example, if you're heading to the UK, you only need to look at the exchange rates for the British Pound (GBP).
Also, take into account that the Euro (EUR) is the currency used in a number of countries within the European Monetary Union (or EU), including places like France, Germany, Italy and Spain. If you're not sure what currency you’ll need for the country you're going to, check out the full list here.
Do you mind the gap?
The exchange rates that ANZ offer aren't the same market rates you can see on online currency converters or Google.
To find a better rate, compare exchange rates before you travel or transfer money overseas.

How to Buy Foreign Exchange: Currency in Cash
ANZ sells currency from Foreign Exchange Centres, Branches and ATM’s. If you're already an ANZ customer, you can also get currency by ordering it online through internet banking at anz.com.au.
If you're in a rush, use a Foreign Exchange Centre or an ATM.
Unfortunately, local ANZ branches often hold a limited stock of the most popular currencies. This means you have to order the currency a few days in advance. If you decide to do this, your exchange rate could move considerably by the time you pick up your cash and you might get less. Plus, ordering cash online through internet banking or through telephone banking isn’t much quicker.
The ANZ Foreign Exchange Centres are useful, but are limited to the CBD's in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. They are also located in airports in Sydney and Melbourne. The Foreign Currency ATM’s are even more limited with just 3 in Melbourne, 1 in Sydney Airport and 1 in Adelaide airport.
Charges, Currency Conversion Fees and Commissions
- 1% fee for any currency bought and a minimum fee of $8
- ANZ customers don't get charged the $8 minimum fee
What currencies ANZ Foreign Exchange buy and sell
ANZ buy and sell most major currencies (over 50 in total), but please don't assume that every branch will hold every single currency for you. Foreign Exchange Centres and the airport will have the most stock of each common currency. If you want to buy or sell an ‘exotic’ currency, they may have to order it for you.
ANZ International Money Transfers
The exchange rates in the "Send Money" and "Receive Money" columns relate to International Money Transfers. For a full guide on how ANZ International Money Transfers work, click here.

For online transfers using internet banking the following fees apply:
- Transfer amounts under AUD$10,000, ANZ charges you $9.00
- Transfer amounts over AUD$10,000 are fee-free
- ANZ charges $18 for Australian dollar international money transfers

What exchange rate do you get on an ANZ credit card?
Unfortunately the exchange rates on credit cards are set by ANZ and there is no publicly available website to check the exchange rates before you make a transaction. Usually the exchange rate appears on your statement after you've transacted.
In recent years, some banks and card issuers have launched debit and credit cards with the best foreign exchange rate you see on XE or Google.
What exchange rate do you get on an ANZ travel card?
