Money exchange reviews

Travel Money NZ Review

Travel Money NZ is exceptionally convenient due to their large national network of stores that are open late and on weekends but there are things you should know about the exchange rates.

Travelex

Friendly, professional, with some of the best exchange rates particularly for selling currency to them. There are bank limits for eftpos and photo ID is required.

Lotus FX

Lotus Foreign Exchange is handy if you want to talk to someone in a store but useless if you need to go online.
