    In this article we show you how to save money if you find yourself looking for Foreign Cash on the Gold Coast.

    Jul 21, 2018 (Upd: Feb 5, 2024)  

    The famed Gold Coast of Australia offers stunning beaches along Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, a plethora of international standard restaurants, and a unique opportunity to wonder through the unchanged hinterland of Gondwana rainforests.

    You may also be on the Gold Coast doing some last minute shopping; picking up a backpack for an overseas trip or perhaps ducking out of work to grab some foreign cash for a business trip. Whatever the reason for your trip to the Gold Coast, you are better off ordering your foreign cash online from Travelex and then picking up the cash at a Post Office branch near to where you live or work.

    You will find that you can save a couple of percent on the exchange rate margin by pre-ordering your cash. Our Review of Auspost exchange rates includes the following table that shows you an example of how much you can save.
