74.95 Japanese yen

0.6012 euros

0.5236 Great British pound

0.8931 Canadian dollars

1.013 New Zealand dollars

If you were exchanging $2000 AUD today compared to Saturday the 26th January (or three days ago) you’d be sitting pretty with an extra $11.80 USD, 780 JPY, 5.80 GBP or 5.40 CAD.

Avoid missing out on your extra snack by adding Rate Guard ( to your transaction in a Travel Money Oz store. It’s free, and if the rate changes within 14 days of purchase they will give you the difference*.
