The AUD reaches levels against the USD not seen since May 2015

September 12, 2017 Financial No Comments Email Email

With the Australian dollar at a more than two-year high against the US Dollar, the attractiveness of the USA for Australian travellers is better than ever. Customers buying the USD are over 6.5% better off than they were 3 months ago.

Kelly Spencer General Manager of Travel Money Group said, “We haven’t seen the AUD-USD rate at this level since May 2015. The demand for the USD in our Travel Money Oz stores is also reflecting this high we’re seeing in the markets. Our store enquiry for the USD is through the roof.”

“It’s definitely a great time to look in your rates if you’re travelling to the USA, or simply countries that accept USD, especially with the forthcoming school holiday period — or even if you’re travelling later in the year.”

“The USA is consistently in the top three countries for Australian travellers with over a million Aussies visiting each year and now we are seeing them getting even greater value for their travel dollar.”

Travel Money Oz advises that travellers can lock in their rates now on cash, or on a pre-paid travel money card with the peace of mind knowing they’ve locked in that day’s rate.

Travel Money Oz is today selling the as cash online at AUD$1= 0.7773 USD, which can then be collected from any Travel Money Oz store (1).

Alternatively, customers not wanting to buy and hold cash can load funds onto a pre-paid travel money card to also secure a great AUD-USD rate.

Travel Money Oz advises customers that their rates are guaranteed for advance orders in-store or online. Their pre-paid travel money card can hold up to 10 currencies with locked in exchange rates (2).

1) Rate as at 11th September, 2017.
