If you ask almost anyone in the world about their hobbies you will find out that most of them are going to tell you that one of their hobbies includes travelling. Travelling can be done for many reasons: Skiing, scuba diving, visiting famous places etc. But one thing always stands out: leaving your ordinary life behind and discovering something new. New culture, new foods, different language and a new currency too.
That’s right, one of the little joys of travelling is acquiring and using another currency. Maybe its made of paper? Or it has all sorts of funny colours (or none at all) or maybe the denominations are so high that you instantly become a millionaire (Vietnam). However, before you get to go on that adventure you’ll have to find a way to get all the currencies for your trip.
Kangaroo Island is a great destination for travellers but a bit short on services for those locals who want to travel elsewhere, including money exchange. There are still local banks to provide this service or you could stop off in Adelaide on your way through but what if I told you could get all your currencies from the comfort of your own home at the best rates available in Australia?
That’s exactly the service we’ve built here at Foreignxchange.com.au! Check our calculator for our rates (we have the best rates in Australia, guaranteed). Once you’re ready to get your cash, just use our simple online ordering process and your currencies will be delivered directly to your door within 5 business days.
If you’d still like to go the traditional route and use a physical money changer in the Kangaroo Island area, then check out the options below.
BankSA branches – you can visit a BankSA branch to get foreign currency but in most cases, they’ll have to order it in and it will be ready for pickup in a few days. They have a branch at 60 Dauncey St in Kingscote.
ANZ Bank also has a similar service at its branch at 62 Dauncey St, Kingscote.
If you hop over to the mainland there are a few more options on the Fleurieu Peninsula but still mostly just banks.
To get the most competitive rates from a physical store, you’ll need to head into Adelaide. You can visit the ForeignXchange physical money changer store in King William Street for the best rates (matching our online rates).
On the other hand, if you’d like to get your currencies all organised before you set out from home then consider using our online service and get the best rates with delivery to your door in 5 business days.
