3 quick tips to ensure you get the best AUD to SBD rate possible
1. Avoid currency exchange kiosks at airports
Did you know that currency exchange kiosks at airports often charge high fees on top of their already high rates? This is because they know you’re likely in a hurry and don’t have time to shop around for a better deal. So, if you want to get the best AUD to SBD rate, it’s worth planning ahead and converting your currency before your flight.
2. Use an exchange that does not charge commission or fees
When you add a fee or commission on top of an already volatile exchange rate, you lose money already. So when looking for the best location to change currency, search for an exchange that does not charge commissions or fees, like Crown Currency Exchange.
3. Get your foreign currency from a reputable source
When exchanging currency, only work with reputable money changers. Make sure the proper authorities have approved the company and that it has a good reputation. With this guarantee in place, you can rest assured that your currency is authentic. Crown Currency Exchange’s 20 years of experience and multiple stores across Australia make us a safe and convenient place to get your travel money.

Which other countries use the Solomon Island dollar?
Only the Solomon Islands use the Solomon Island dollar as their official currency since 1977. The Solomon Islands’ previous national currencies were the Australian dollar and the British pound until they adopted the SBD. It was in 1977 that the SBD supplanted the AUD as the official currency of the country. Even though the two currencies started out at parity, the SBD has lost a lot of value compared to the AUD. The depreciation of the SBD has been so severe that foreign goods are occasionally used in place of national money.
