Travel Money (Buy Foreign Cash) Table - ANZ Compared
 

The live tables above will give you an indication of how ANZ Bank exchange rates compare to an alternative FX provider. At the time of writing (16/04/18), the exchange rate margin that ANZ was showing for Foreign Transfers was 4.05%. The margin indicates the amount above the mid-rate (i.e. the rate at which the banks interchange with each other). The cheapest alternative for Foreign Transfers (OFX) at the time of writing was showing a margin of 1.43%, meaning if you had changed $10,000 for EUR with OFX, you would have received EUR165 more than if you had made the exchange with ANZ.So, what about the other exchange rates services that ANZ offers, are they so much better that it makes the higher cost of transfer worth while?

The key benefit that your bank offers to it’s existing customers, is the knowledge that you are transferring with a familiar brand. They already have all your details so there will be no need to complete any additional forms or undergo any further customer verification or security checks. With that in mind, if you are making a one-off international money transfer, where the amount to be exchanged is sufficiently low for the difference in cost to be acceptable to you, then going with your bank could be the way to go for you.

If, however, you are making a substantial or intend to make regular international money transfers, then securing the lowest exchange rate ongoing, will be more critical, as will expertise in the foreign exchange market. The FX specialists that we list on our site are registered and regulated organisations with a strong history of servicing the Foreign transfer and Travel money market.

An FX specialist has resoures that are dedicated to foreign transfers so they will likely be able to offer you advice and guidance as to the type of contract (for example a Spot or Forward contract) that would best suit your situation.

Exchange rates are something that often worries a traveller planning to travel abroad. Despite the easy availability of travel cards and other facilities, there could be occasions when you will need to carry cash with you. Even if you aren’t keen on knowing it all in detail, a little awareness of the exchange rates could go a long way in helping you choose the best option – cash, use a travel card or make an international money transfer to pay for an organised tour or accomodation cost.

Understanding ANZ Bank exchange rates made easy

To start with, it is common knowledge that ANZ offers its customers a wide range of currency related products and services. This is an attempt to throw more light on the ANZ Bank exchange rates. The aim is to explain and compare the various exchange rates provided for options like Travel Money (cash), Travel Cards and International Money Transfers (IMT).

When you hear the word exchange rate, you might feel a bit lost and confused. However, it becomes easy to understand the exchange rates when you know a few details. For instance, an exchange rate depends on various factors like:

  • The currency you need
  • Transaction – whether you wish to buy or sell the currency
  • The type of product – Travel Money, a Travel Card or International money transfer
A snapshot of the ANZ exchange rate chart
ANZ Bank exchange rates table example

Let’s now use this chart to understand the currencies, transaction type, exchange rates and their calculation that applies in your situation:



How do you calculate currency conversions?

Once you’ve matched your product with the right exchange rate, it is time for currency conversion calculation. The general rule of thumb would be:

  • Convert AUD into foreign currency by multiplying it by the rate
  • Convert foreign currency into AUD by dividing it by the rate

Here are some of the conversion calculations you can resort to in various situations:





As you can see from above, you can see that it is fairly simple but tedious to find the exchange rates that apply to you so we recommend you can use our calculators. The main point to remember is that there would be slight changes in rates depending on the type of product you wish to buy/sell. Also, it is worth remembering that not all products and services are available across all currencies and the rates will be different at ANZ Foreign Exchange centres.

Now that you know about ANZ Exchange rates, you can make diligent currency buying decisions. If you need more information or what to see the current ANZ exchange rates are at their website for comparison,please click here

ANZ advertised IMT rates extra “Timer Margin” for Internet Banking

From time to time we perform BER Rate Checks to ensure the advertised rates for Banks and Brokers are accurate.



The Main Points:

  • ANZ provides extensive foreign exchange services including foreign transfers and holiday money. FX specialists generally specialise in Foreign Transfers or Travel money;
  • Products available both in-branch and online via their online banking platform. FX specialists will have a stronger online presence but you will be able to talk to a dedicated Foreign Transfer specialist, and for regular or large transfers, you may have an account manager;
  • ANZ Bank exchange rates are generally poor compared to using an FX specialist.
  • Bad exchange rates need to be weighed up against ease of use.
  • On occasion ANZ can offer very good rates especially for Asia currencies.

    ANZ foreign exchange was excellent.
    Just a quick phone call to their dedicated foreign exchange number (1800 35 25 35) and I had ordered my FJD currency in no time at all! Was advised it would be delivered to my local bank in 3 business days – it got there in 2!
    ANZ also waived their exchange fee on FJD due to cyclone Winston – great job ANZ 🙂

    PS. You have to be an ANZ customer

    Did not stock cash…
    The ladies at ANZ said the bank does not stock INR as it was illegal to take into the county, even after showing them the bank of India statement saying that was not the case. So I left empty handed.

    The rates for transfers shown here and advertised at ANZ.com are at least 1% better than actually offered via internet banking, can someone look at this please?

  5. Avatar Glenda says:

    anz is not content with having customers, they have the need to squeeze as much as possible from them. I try very hard to always use the Australian Post Office service for my international exchanges, they have no fees.

      Hi Glenda, thanks for your post. Australia post don’t have fees for Buying Foreign Cash as they make money on the exchange rate they offer. Please refer to http://bestexchangerates.com/travel_money to see which vendor or bank are offering the best rates.

  6. Avatar Angela says:

    Easy to purchase foreign currency at the ANZ bank near international check-in at Melbourne Airport. Shop around though. I used ANZ to buy Fijian currency, and by far they had the best over all exchange rate. Used bestexchangerates.com.au to find currency rates. ANZ do charge a cost for non ANZ account holders to buy foreign currencies though. The staff were helpful. I am not an ANZ account holder and I was happy with the overall experience.

    ANZ dont want foreign exchange business. Tried to open an account as I am with ANZ but was told only for businesses, then had a $ 25 p.m. charge and finally that there is no online access. Couldn’t make it any more difficult could they!
