Tips to get the best currency exchange rates in Canberra

1. Avoid foreign money exchange at airports.

The kiosks at Canberra airport have very high overheads, making exchange rates less attractive for you to buy and sell. Try to exchange your travel money away from the airports before or after your journey.

2. Choose a currency exchange service that does not impose commissions or other costs.

Some currency exchange dealers’ rates look amazing, but they add fees or commissions on top of your exchange. Always check with the service what their business model is. Crown Currency runs a simple retail model – we buy the currency and then put a margin on it (just like if you were buying a t-shirt from a retailer). We believe this is the fairest model for you to exchange your cash and receive the best value.

3. Be updated with current exchange rates

If you have time before your next trip, Crown Currency has an excellent system to ensure you get the optimum rates for your exchange. It is called the Royal Customer List, and it works by you informing us what currency you would like and at what rate – when the rates hit that target, we will hold the cash for you to collect – no more trying to make sense of the market rates

Yes. You may see slight variations across our store networks, though our Canberra stores will have very similar rates. Several reasons contribute to this, including what quantities of the currency you require our Canberra stores have in their safes! A great example is if another customer has just sold us a large amount of the money you are after – our teams have more room to move on the margins.
