Converting Pounds to Australian Dollars

Transferring money to Australia is relatively easy as you can transfer practically any currency, there are no restrictions or regulations on the currency that you can transfer to Australia and there are no limits on the amount that you can transfer.

What money transfer services are there on the market?

Previously a bank would have been the only money transfer service available if you needed to transfer money to Australia. Although there are now alternatives to banks, there are only a limited number so there is a lack of competition in the money transfer market and this enables banks to apply large transfer fees and to offer poor exchange rates. In addition to the costs, it can take a number of days for your money to be received when you complete the transfer through a  bank.

A money sending bureaux is another service that will be able to assist your money transfer needs. While this could result in your money being received much sooner than if you made the money transfer via a bank, you are not likely to get a great return for your money as the transfer fees are often high and the exchange rates on offer are generally uncompetitive.
