A currency converter is an online tool that can help you work out the value of your Australian currency in the foreign currency you need. It uses the market rates to calculate what Australian Dollars you’ll be spending, in whatever country you’re spending it in.
Foreign currency is calculated with exchange rates. An exchange rate is how much it costs to exchange one currency for another. These fluctuate all the time as they are traded on the foreign exchange market. The exchange rate is based on the market price of a currency at that time e.g. USD$1 could be worth AU$1.5.
When you make a transfer or check the exchange rate given on your Qantas Travel Money card, the rate will be different to the market rate and will show you how much you will get if you transfer onto your card³.
