    What is considered a good rate of exchange from AUD to GBP

    Hi everyone, The avg rate of the past three years has been 0.5606 Whilst the AU$ economy looks to be in a much stronger position right now than the UK, we have the escalating trade tariff war with China (& the Australian journalist they have arrested/imprisoned) which could impact the AU$ regardless of how well Australia is doing compared to the rest of the world. The UK has a brexit deadline coming up and their economy/gvmt is not handling the covid fallout well. Or even at all. America continues to implode: not really at any point until after the election is there any reason to buy the USD - which is the only reason for GBP strength at the moment - it's not based on buoyant activity in the UK economy or UK purchasing manager's confidence. If you have a rate in mind that you'd like to achieve, remember that you can always leave that rate as an order with your FX provider and they will contact you when the rate is reached ~ that way you can go on with life not having to monitor it every hour/day. Leave the ulcers to the professionals

    That was the week that was.....(8)

    With division growing wider by the day in the US and Consumer confidence at a 6-year low, stronger than forecast Retail Sales seem to be giving the AUD and GBP something unexpected to smile about in the short--term ~ https://www.moneycorp.com/en-au/news-hub/weekly-brief-14-august-20203/

    That was the week that was.....(8)

    A storming end to the week for the Pound; the Australian Dollar continues to soar; continued water-treading for the Euro and the division and disagreement continues in the US. That Was The Week That Was. https://www.moneycorp.com/en-au/news-hub/weekly-brief-31-july-202022/
  13. Hi Okila, Yes, your EU cards will all work fine here - but beware of the exchange rates and fees that your German bank may charge. Definitely check their policy on those. Otherwise, before I moved here I opened an expat account with Westpac and it was seamless. Could not have gone smoother. You can use your Aunt's address as your temporary address and just go into your local branch when you arrive to collect your ATM cards etc. You won't want to do your FX Euro/AUD through them though because their margins are very big. Shop around for a good FX provider who only take a small margin. Good luck!

    Is it safe??

    Hi Aussiebird! Most of our Australian client business is due to the purchase/sale of property and, understanding that this is an incredibly important chapter for them, and also having had to go through the process ourselves during our respective moves to Australia, we're especially sensitive to their needs and concerns. Being the No1. global non-bank International Payments provider, it's our responsibility to set the precedent for our sector and both create and maintain the most stringent standards possible. Please let me know how I can help you further ~ Sue.
