About the AUD to NZD exchange rate
It's easy to see the AUD to NZD exchange rate on XE, Yahoo or any other currency converter. It is the real exchange rate that is set by the foreign exchange market. It's also sometimes called the 'wholesale' rate or the 'interbank' rate because it used for wholesale amounts between banks. It's the best rate to convert foreign currency but often, it's very hard to actually get.
Where is the best place to exchange AUD to NZD?
It's simple to buy NZD online in Australia but it may not necessarily be as fast as walking into a money changer. Services like Australia Post also offer a foreign 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 New Zealand can be a good option but it all depends on where you go. The money changers in the centre of the main cities like Auckland 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.
