- Cards are grossly overpriced.
- Coming in at an average of $380, Valentine’s Day is E.X.P.E.N.S.I.V.E.
See, we told you! Airport rates are the worst.
This conversion doesn’t take into account their service fees or commissions either (don’t worry, Travel Money Oz doesn’t have those).
It shows that, just like a relationship, you shouldn’t settle for what’s easy. Sure, it’s convenient to purchase your currency at the airport, but it comes at a pretty major cost.
A little bit of research (or in relationship terms, social media stalking), combined with the ability to talk about what matters most to you (Best Price, Cash Commitment or Rate Guard?) will leave you with more money in your back pocket and an urge to start a long term relationship with Travel Money Oz.
So, what are you waiting for? Ditch your ex and swipe right on your new flame. With over 165 stores across Australia and New Zealand, as well as a web store open 24/7, we’ll be there whenever you need us.
Just like Aladdin, we promise that our relationship will show you a whole new world. From chocolate tasting in Belgium, scuba diving in Thailand and picnics under a sparkling Eiffel tower, there really is no better relationship than the one you’re about to start with us.
