Foreignxchange.com.au is headquartered in Adelaide and serves customers around Australia. We are experts in this industry having run a physical store in the Adelaide CBD for 10 years before developing our online model. We’ve served 35,000 happy customers to date and love to help people get their travel money sorted before heading off overseas on their adventures.
Is it secure?
We take security very seriously and it’s incorporated into every stage of our process from the latest website security to high operational standards to premium couriers for delivery.Signatures and ID checks are required upon delivery or pickup. Our operation and your currencies are fully insured for your peace of mind.
How do we compare?
Unlike our competitors, we’re more than happy for you to shop around and compare rates because we’re confident we can consistently offer the best currency exchange rates due to our unique business model.
The typical foreign exchange providers in Adelaide and South Australia are;
- Physical money exchange shops (mostly in the Adelaide CBD)
- Banks and their partners
- Airport exchanges
All three of these options suffer from the same key problem: expensive retail rents and high operating costs. We’ve got nothing against these businesses but the simple fact is that they have many costs to cover and therefore cannot match the rates of our online operation.
In terms of convenience, we think we have them beat there as well. If you shop online then you already know the convenience of being able to check out the options on the internet then have your purchase delivered to your door. It’s no different with our currencies. You can see the live currency exchange rates on our website and they’ll be locked in once you make your selection and purchase. Then all you need to do is select your delivery address or pickup location and your currency will arrive within 3 business days.
