Why Order Travel Money With TUI?
How to get the most from your Australian dollars while on holiday
Paying a visit to the land Down Under? It’s time to start thinking about your currency. The Australian dollar’s used in Australia itself, as well as being the official currency of many neighbouring small islands.
As with all currencies, the exchange rate won’t stay in one place for long, but in 2018, the average rate was A$1.81 to every £1.

The TUI Travel Money card can be used free of charge for multiple currencies and in 36 million locations worldwide – it works just like your debit card.
A guide to using your Australian dollars
Australia has a relatively high cost of living, and it’s wise to budget for roughly A$80 per day to cover your basic needs, such as eating, drinking and travel. Or, you’ll likely need up to A$150 for the basics plus sight-seeing and experiences.
Most cities in Australia take cards and tipping isn’t expected, so there’s no need for extra cash when eating out.
