Finding competitive rates for foreign exchange

If youre setting off overseas you want the biggest bang for your buck. If you're about to need some foreign currency, it pays to keep an eye on the currency exchange rates for a few months before your trip. This way you can pounce on a hot rate when it occurs. You can't control the market conditions, but you can take advantage of them when they're at their most favourable.

Common fees for converting currency

There are various ways that a foreign currency converter will make money out of helping you exchange you mighty Australian dollars for another currency. First of all, they may charge a flat fee, which isn't great for small amounts, but less harmful for larger amounts of dosh. Second, they may offer foreign currency exchange for a currency conversion percentage fee, normally 3% or more of your total amount. Naturally, this is annoying for small conversions, but soon mounts up in larger transfers. Lastly, there's the sneaky tactic: the foreign exchange margin, which may take the place of the conversion percentage fee, but may be added on. Keep an eye out for this snake in the grass - it's an underhanded tactic.
