When you load via the Qantas Money mobile app or website, you can lock in the exchange rate3 on up to 10 foreign currencies4 - including New Zealand Dollars (NZD). Buying NZD before you head off will give you peace of mind that even if the rates move up or down while you’re away, your pre-loaded currencies won’t. Meaning you’ll always know exactly how much money you have available to spend for better budgeting abroad.

Ahhh New Zealand. Visiting the land of the long white cloud (or Aotearoa) can be a breath of fresh air. With its uncrowded cities, green landscapes, accepting nature and clean, crisp air, it’s the ultimate refresh. However there’s one thing that you can’t escape from, even in New Zealand... and that’s the need for NZD currency. Now, there’s not a lot of other ways to say it other than New Zealand Dollar, ‘Zeal’ and ‘Kiwi’ were suggested names but didn’t make the cut. However in the currency trading world it’s referred to as ‘Kiwi’. One thing’s for sure, with the amount of adventures you can have there, you’ll need to buy ‘heaps’ of New Zealand Dollars (NZD).

Load it up and lock it in

The great thing about travelling with a Qantas Travel Money prepaid card is that you can lock in the exchange rate of your desired currency prior to traveling3 - up to 11 exchange rates at one time4. Meaning you’ll always know exactly how much money you have, even when visiting more than one destination. Even better, you’ll earn Qantas Points on the foreign currency you spend. All you need to do is load your money onto your activated Qantas Travel Money prepaid card, via the Qantas Money mobile app or website. You can choose from instant load, bank transfer, or BPAY®, whichever suits you.

It’s one of the most dramatic landscapes on earth. A place of stunning scenery and friendly locals with something new and different to experience every day. With such a contrast between the two islands, a road trip around both can feel like two countries in one. There’s the slightly warmer north island, with its geothermal activity, rich Maori culture, cosmopolitan cities and world-class scuba diving (Poor Knights Island). Then the south island with its dramatic scenery, Fjordlands, adventure capital (Queenstown) and marine life.

When you’re going from AUD to NZD, it’s good to understand how the currency is valued. There are five notes and five coins in circulation.

Wellington

A compact and picturesque waterfront capital city, Wellington is primarily surrounded by water and sits on the south western tip of the north island. Its scenic natural harbour and steep green hillsides adorned with tiered suburbs of colonial villas are an attractive vista for residents and visitors alike. Visit the acclaimed Te Papa (Museum of New Zealand), walk to the Mount Victoria Lookout to soak in the city to sea view, embrace the inner city bohemian ‘Cuba Street or ride the famous red cable car.

Queenstown

Surrounded by the dramatic Remarkables and edged by the crystal clear, drinkable, blue depths of Lake Wakatipu, no one has visited Queenstown and said they’re bored. It’s known for being the adventure capital of New Zealand where people head to bungee jump off bridges or jump out of planes. However, if it’s a relaxing weekend getaway you’re after, you won’t be disappointed either. It’s a popular year round destination and it’s easy to see why.

Christchurch

It’s a city that promises an eclectic mix of historic elegance and contemporary culture, with an English feel. Meander through the contemporary art galleries, boutique shops and open-air markets to soak in the vibe. Work your way through the many pop-up restaurants and bars. Or wander through the stunning parks and gardens and punt along the Avon River.
