    • Exchanging GBP for AUD

      Perth Nov 26, 2014 at 6:19 AM

      Hi guys,
      I am planning on visiting Australia for the first time in Jan next year and I need some advice on where to exchange some sterling for some dollars.

      Generally I have been told and actually have experienced that you get a better buying rate of the local currency when buying locally in the country you are visiting.
      Is this still the case for Aus? Currently you get around 1.7 dollars for a pound here in the UK.
      Can anyone give a rough idea of what the exchange rate in Aus is?

      Also do the foreign exchange bureaus accept travellers cheques?

      I have looked into using a credit card or debit card but there are usage fees and non-sterling fees which i am trying to avoid.

      Thanks in advance!

      Pay as you go sims?

      by DavidUK Online Now Jan 29, 2005 at 11:42 PM

      Staying with friends in Albany soon and was wondering if it is possible to buy 'pay as you go' sim cards for your mobile. I can phone what would be a local number and get great rates back to the UK via what is technically a calling card. Any advice would be appreciated.

      I will be traveling to albany in a few years and was wanting to get some travel info on this town. I am also interested in getting info on the aborigines in the area. Is there a place that would send me the information in the mail, or is there a organization that could just email me back and forth answering questions? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Karen
