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!
