Can anyone help ... I'm coming out to Oz at the end of December for 4 months, I'll be traveling a bit and then hoping to work (I have a Working Holiday Visa). My query is regarding bank accounts, I will be saving money here before I travel and wondered if anyone had any advice about how best to access my money while in Oz. Is it best to keep my money in my bank account here (I currently bank with Santander) or is it best to open an Ozzy account? Or alternatively does anyone advise opening a different account here before I leave and putting my money in that if the rates/charges for money withdrawals are cheaper/better?
Any advice would be greatly received.
