It’s time to convert your hard-earned cash into holiday bills! Head to your local bank branch to brag about your trip and withdraw foreign dollars. Although many may believe that this is an expensive way to exchange your currency, the rates from banks regarding common currencies are not particularly competitive when compared to other currency exchanges. However, we would recommend comparing exchange rates before locking in your option.
Travelex is a leading worldwide money exchange that allows you to buy currency online and have it delivered to your home or you can swing by your local store to pick it up. They also offer Travelex Money Cards which are prepaid money cards that can be loaded with Euros, British Pounds, Japanese Yen, Thai baht as well as New Zealand, US, Canadian and Hong-Kong dollars. And don’t stress about ATM fees, Travelex doesn’t charge for withdrawing money!
In the Moreton Bay Region, near Redcliffe, Travelex is located at:
If you decide last minute you want a little extra, Brisbane Airport also has a Travelex stand.
Use a travel money card like your own debit card with Cash Passport Platinum Mastercard available from Australia Post with $0 online reload fees, loading up to 11 different currencies and locking in your exchange rate. To ensure security against fraud, the Cash Passport has a chip, PIN and signature features and is not linked to a bank account. At the end of your trip, you can also cash out your Cash Passport online.
Some additional great features include 3 months of free global Wi-Fi when loaded with a minimum of AUD$100 available at 1.4 million global hotspots and complementary access to airport lounges worldwide should you receive a flight delay.
No matter which option you choose, we’re sure you don’t need to be told twice to ensure your cash or card is always kept safe. Travelex and Mastercard have 24/7 support for their travel money cards and will help secure your money against fraud, but it’s probably best to avoid that stress. You will also have the option to exchange currencies overseas should you run out of money.
We couldn’t be happier with Redcliffe Travel. Their wonderful agent, Tammy, recently booked our flights to Zimbabwe. Her attention to detail was fantastic! Her communication was outstanding, keeping us updated and even checking in after our return to ensure our travel went smoothly. We highly recommend Tammy and the team at Redcliffe Travel.
We have just returned from our second holiday organised and booked through Tammy. It's so comforting to deal with such a professional and caring staff member. Thanks heaps Tammy outstanding service once again
The Australia part of our trip has sadly finished. In a word, it has been amazing! We owe a lot to our travel agent Tammy Aitchison, who asked the right questions, gave us insightful guidance when planning this trip and basically ironed out the wrinkles we would have undoubtedly experienced had it not been for her assistance. You will discover that her professionalism and attention to detail is world class and her customer service is second to none.
We had a terrific family holiday arranged by Redcliffe Cruise Travel and we wouldn't hesitate to have them assisting us with our next trip. Because we like you guys! Because you are a local company. Because we like having an agent behind us in the event things go wrong on the journey.
As popular as do-it-yourself travel is and as savvy as we are with all things online, there are some aspects of travel that are much better dealt with through a travel agency and someone who really knows what they are doing. Tammy and Redcliffe Cruise and Travel are so knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with those aspects of travel that are challenging. Its good to work through someone who knows what they are doing and who take as much interest in you having a great holiday as you do!!
The service provided is always helpful and comprehensive. The booking documentation is always delivered on time to allow checking and to make changes if necessary.
I have used Tammy at Redcliffe Cruise and Travel twice now to book our family holidays. We have found her to be very professional and efficient. She has also been very obliging when I have had to ask questions regarding our holiday. We will definitely be using her in the future.
