Foreign currency cash

When you arrive in a foreign country, it’s reassuring to have some local currency on hand to pay for essential items like transport or food.  ANZ can help with foreign cash in many of the world’s major currencies.

Travel tip

If you're going to a lot of different countries, it can also be a good idea to take some United States Dollars with you. They’re widely accepted in many countries, and easy to exchange into local currency.


ANZ can supply you with foreign cash in more than 20 currencies, including the most common:

  • Australian Dollars
  • US Dollars
  • British Pounds
  • Euro

We can also order in other currencies for you. You can check current foreign exchange rates or work out how much foreign currency cash you’ll need with our easy currency converter.

Order your foreign cash in advance

ANZ branches regularly hold foreign cash, but for your convenience  you can also order it in advance and pick it up from any ANZ branch.  To order your foreign currency cash, simply call 0800 269 296 or visit your local ANZ branch.

Travel tip

It's a good idea to order your foreign currency cash well in advance of your trip, especially if you live in an outlying or rural area. It's one less thing to worry about before you leave.

Exchanging your foreign currency into NZ Dollars

If you've got any foreign cash left over when you return from your trip, ANZ also exchanges a wide range of currencies back into New Zealand dollar*.
