    • 7 Day Stay in Perth

      Perth Dec 4, 2014 at 7:14 AM

      Hi! I'm a Singaporean girl, 21 years old, going to Perth in January 2015 with two friends. I'm wondering how much I should budget for a week's holiday?

      Accommodation is accounted for as I'll be staying with a family friend. We are planning to go to Fremantle, Caversham Wildlife Park, Hillary's Boat Harbour, Watertown Brand Outlet Centre, London Courts, Cottlesloe and Coogee Beach. At least, that's the items on our list now but it's open to change!

      I don't plan on doing much shopping apart from token souvenirs here and there, and I'm not too big a spender on food... I've been told by a close friend who lives in Perth that I have to budget around $25 for a meal there, is that true? It's my first time travelling with people who aren't family so I'm a bit lost, sorry!

      Please advise! Thank you!:)

    • 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!

      Hi, can anyone advise. Traveling to New Zealand from the UK in February. Instead of changing sterling into NZ in the UK would it be better to do it in New Zealand at perhaps a bank or airport.
      Could anyone tell me what the current exchange rate to purchase NZ dollars with sterling is. Hard to find out whilst still in the UK.
