Save Time & Order Your Currency Online
An undeniable benefit of ordering your currency online with us today is that you will be able to save yourself heaps of time!
Let’s look at your journey into the CBD, whether you use public transport, walk-in or drive into the heart of any city or town centre in Australia. Your journey time alone either waiting for a bus, looking for a car park or simply finding a route on google maps to walk in is going to be a time leech. Just think, by the time you have got to where you need to be, you could have already placed your order and had the task of getting your money converted completed.
Need to get cash out of the bank to transfer? Again, another awkward, unnecessary step in the whole process. Ordering your travel currency online takes this hassle right out. Either make a bank transfer or order through BPay and there is no need to get any cash out at all.
If you did decide to make the trip into your local shopping district or centre, you now have the tedious mission to not only locate currency exchange stores, but you obviously want to get your hands on the best rate and find the store that has the lowest commission fees. Even if you did all this research prior to your trip into the city, again time is of essence and you could have already saved all this hassle by using us for your travel money.
Jump The Queues In-store
Ok, so you’ve made it to the CBD, you’ve found the currency exchange provider you are going to use and you get to their shop. Next up, there is a queue. Again more wasted time that you could have avoided by ordering your currency online with us.
Lower Commission Fees Online
You can save a shed load of money on your currency exchange by ordering online. Here at Foreignxchange.com.au, we have a handful of physical store locations to help keep overheads down. This means that we are able to offer one the best conversion rates on the market as we keep our commission fees to the bare minimum. You will find this across both larger and smaller currency exchange providers that solely rely on their physical stores. They hike up their commission fees to help cover the cost of their store locations. Unlike us who have found a healthy balance between physical store locations in key areas coupled with a strong online presence.
What Are The Benefits Of Ordering In-store?
The only real benefit of buying your currency from a physical store is that you get your cash immediately. A lot of currency exchange providers understand that travel goers and holiday makers often leave it to the last minute to sort their currency out. This is where they have the audacity to charge higher commission fees and weaker conversion rates. This is why getting your travel money last minute from an airport for example is an absolute no-no. If you have left it to the last minute, although you will not get a better rate as you would do online. At least you will have cash in hand if you walk into a store and pick it up before you head off on your travel.
