Buying South Korean Won in Australia

Where is the best place to buy Korean Won 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 to buy foreign exchange online but it may not necessary be as quick as walking into a store. Companies like Travelex also offer a money exchange 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.

How can you buy Korean Won at the best rate?

The key to finding the best deal is to compare your options to buy foreign currency in cash. Make sure that you compare not just the exchange rate, but the total cost of your currency including any service or delivery fees.

Here are 5 top ways currently available in Australia

  1. Online - If you are looking to buy some Thai baht in cash, you can now do it online. It's similar to buying anything else online but you will need some ID on hand. Online money changers, like S Money, have the best exchange rates. Most will either deliver it to your home or allow click and collect.
  2. In-store -  this is one of the best ways to get your currency fast. Just locate a store near you and bring your ID. It's a good idea to call ahead to check their rates and to make sure they have enough baht in stock.
  3. Overseas - Sometimes it can actually be cheaper to buy your Thai baht abroad. In Bangkok for example, they have very competitive money changers if you are willing to go out of your way to find them.
  4. International money transfers - If you are sending money from Australia to Thai baht, using a money transfer service like Wise or OFX is a great way to convert your currency. These online services are a much cheaper option than using an Australian bank.
  5. Travel money cards - These cards used to have terrible exchange rates and a heaps of hidden fees. While this is still the case with most bank travel cards, there are much better options available. These include Revolut, Wise and the 28 Degrees card.
