When you're travelling, it's sensible to carry cash in the currency of the country you're visiting, to cover any incidental expenses. 

ANZ deals in the major currencies of the world, but if you're going to a number of countries, you may wish to take some United States dollars with you. These are widely accepted and easy to exchange. 

Product information


Cash in the currency of your destination is convenient and can be readily used to purchase goods and services.

If you're carrying a currency that isn't the local currency, you should be able to convert it at most major banks at your destination.

Currencies and denominations

ANZ can supply you with cash in more than 20 currencies, with a range of denominations available, including:

  • Australian Dollars
  • British Pounds
  • Euro
  • US Dollars.

Foreign cash is regularly on hand at ANZ branches and you can call in advance to have money set aside for you. 

Any other currencies can be ordered in for you by visiting or calling your local ANZ branch.

Loss or theft

Remember, if you lose your foreign cash, it is gone and cannot be replaced.

  • Never carry too much on you at any one time.
Conversion in New Zealand
Accepted notes can be converted back to New Zealand dollars at any ANZ branch when you return.*
We recommend you order your travel money well before your trip - particularly if you live in an outlying or rural area.
