1. Avoid currency exchange kiosks at airports

Money exchange at airport kiosks is one of the most expensive ways to buy foreign currency, despite its convenience. Due to the airport’s captive market, these kiosks often offer higher rates and fees compared to banks or other money changers. Thus, if you want to get more USD for your AUD, it is best to do it ahead of time, outside the airport.

2. Get your foreign currency from a reputable source

Buying USD from a reputable source is important because it will ensure that you receive authentic currency. There are many counterfeit bills in circulation, so it is best to avoid unregulated vendors.
