    While it is fairly easy to use (as it utilises Amex FX) and you can pick up in store, I have to give it only 2 stars as the “FX cash fee” is not mentioned on this site. You can find the information here: https://www.fx4you.com/australia/bankwest/faq.cfm

    The fee for FX cash is 1% with an $8 minimum. This changes it’s ranking order and makes it more expensive than say Travelex (who really have no fees – while charging a slightly higher margin).

      Hi Singapore Girl, thanks for pointing out that we were missing the Bankwest (Amex) FX cash fee of 1% with an $8 minimum, thats now been fixed.
      Hope you have a great trip and thx for using BER 🙂

    Having to be a Bankwest customer to purchase foreign currency seems a bit absurd in this day and age. This fact was not mentioned when I approached my local branch in person (I found out through the T&C’s on their website). Currency must be ordered online as bank staff are unable to do this?? I happily went elsewhere. Twenty first century Bankwest.

    Bankwest online charges $8 per currency which ends up much more expensive than this website shows. I went with travelex – bpay option and collected currency from airport

    Dear fxadmin

    Thankyou for your helpful website.

    I would like to draw your attention to the Bankwest advertised rates .

    My wife visited the George Street store to exchange $5000 for euros & they advised you needed to be a customer to exchange , not a problem for us we have an account .

    Bankwest advised that she needed to visit the office in Castlereagh street to do the exchange.

    She was advised that they would need to order in the currency & it could take a week (but could not guarantee the rate)

    I just don’t think Bankwest should be promoted for fx if they can’t deliver on their advertised rate.

    This makes your website which should be a very good source of consumer information effectively useless.

    We ended up exchanging elsewhere, no great problem, but I felt I needed to pass this on.

    Good rates but didn’t realise you need to be a customer to exchange with BankWest

    Picked up some euro before my backpacking trip in the Perth Hay street branch which I ordered online, all went swimmingly
