    Hi.

     

    I have some sterling that relatives have sent to the kids for Xmas. Where is the best place to change it to Aussie dollars? Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks,

    Becky

    ......... check out the rates first - its gone down over 9 cents since Christmas (£1 = 1.47 now and it was 1.56) you will get even less when you exchange it sadly

    We usually keep the cash and give the kids the Aus $$ equivilent to save paying the fees :idea:

     

    Then send the pounds back for rellies birthdays ect or when one of us go back.

     

    Depends on your circumatances i s'pose.

    Never seen the rates this good (for us here) since we've been here :biggrin:

    Yeah the exchange rate is a bit of a bummer to be honest, and we have been exchanging money for the kids for a few years now so we have a build up. As we have no plans to go back to the UK it makes sense to cash it in. Just wish the exchange rate was a bit better....
