How to Buy Foreign Exchange: Currency in Cash

Post offices don't hold any stock of currency so you have to order your currency and pick it up at a branch.

You can either order your currency online or at a post office. In both situations, you order the amount of currency and nominate which post office to pick it up from and enter your details including identification.

It's fee free to order online if you pay by BPAY but if you pay by credit card, surcharges apply. Ordering at the post office is also free but you have to use EFTPOS and pay by cheque or savings.

 

What currencies the Post office sell

Australia Post sell most major currencies (over 50 in total).

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 Australia Post 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 much you are sending
  • Which country the money is going to
