Buying Qatari Riyal in Australia

Where is the best place to buy Qatari Riyal in Australia?

If you like the reassurance of having the local currency readily available from the moment you step off the plane, you have three options to pick up the cash before you go:

  • Buy the currency online and either collect it in-store or have it delivered to you.
  • Collect from a currency exchange store.
  • Most expensively, buy the currency at the airport.

Online money changers like S Money are often an easy and cheap way for ordering money online but it may not necessary be as quick as walking into a store. Companies like Travelex also offer a currency exchange service online but it takes between two and five business days before the currency is ready for pick-up or delivery so you need to be organised!

Alternatively, buying your currency in-store can be a good option but it all depends on where you go. The money changers in the centre of the main cities like Sydney or Melbourne tend to be more competitive than smaller stores in the suburbs.

Only change money at the airport as a last resort. The exchange rates and fees at Australian airports are among the worst in the world so avoid it at all costs if you want to get the best bang for your buck.

5 Everyday Things You’ll Need Qatari Riyal Cash for

cash is preferred sign

If you are heading overseas, it's handy to carry some Qatari Riyal cash with you along with your debit, credit or travel card. Here are 5 common things you may need cash for:

  1. Tipping - Having small denominations banknotes makes it so much easier to show your appreciation.
  2. If your card doesn't work - If your card gets frozen by your bank while you are overseas, having some cash on hand to get you through a few days until the problem is fixed is always handy.
  3. Markets -  One of the best local experiences is heading down to a market. A lot of vendors will have card facilities but many will only accept cash.
  4. Tours - A great way to see a new city is to take a tour. Some of these "Free" walking tours still rely on a cash tip at the end of the day.
  5. Cash only - Some shops and venues just aren't set up for cards. This could be anything from the local ice cream truck, a local bus or even a toilet!

Travel Money Tips to Get You Through Your Next Trip

Millions of travellers head to Qatar each year. Sadly, many waste their money on unnecessary foreign currency conversion. So here are a few practical tips to help you get the most bang for your buck:

  1. Avoid the airports! Currency exchange bureaux at the airport charge epic fees. If you like a good deal – or even just a reasonable one – avoid these at all costs.
  2. Only carry what you need – It can be expensive to change QARs back into AUDs so only take what you think you will spend. Not only this – nobody likes to tuck wads of notes into their socks and toiletries for safekeeping on longer journeys.
  3. Ask for a mix of denominations – It’s always hard to get rid of those pesky 500 QAR bills, so try to get a mix of 100 and 50 QAR notes.
  4. Check your exchange rate – Google and are the standard market exchange rate but you’ll notice how wildly bank and currency exchanges can vary their rates. Try to get as close to the market rate as possible.
  5. Look out for hidden fees – The bane of our (financial) existence, hidden fees will often make a huge difference to the cost of your holiday. Be particularly wary of hidden bank fees for overseas card usage.
  6. The right card makes all the difference – Having a card is convenient but it can take a hit to the bank account if you have the wrong card. Research and arm yourself with the best card for travel for big savings.
  7. Mix it up! Many travellers only use their credit card while some only think about cash. But the best option depends on your situation. Save the card for huge purchases such as hotels and car hire and reserve your cash for smaller wins – transport, attractions, or meals out.
