Saan po ba makakabili ng AUD sa Manila? Tingin nyo po ba maganda US dollars na lang ang dalhin ko tapos magpa-palit na lang ako sa hotel pagdating ko sa AUD?

    Try big banks. Ako bumili sa BDO.. just have to call them in advance to reserve. Catch is, kailangan meron ka account with them. And pwede ka lang bumili ng AUD sa branch na kung saan ka nag-open.

    Much better.. if you have ATM card like BPI... just bring it at hanap na lang kau ng ATM machine pag dating sa airport ng oz then mag withdraw na lang kau basta tingan nyo muna sa card kung may kapareha na logo sa ATM machine. Puede nyo rin dahin ang debit card or credit card may naka lagay naman yun na visa or mastercard magagamit nyo yun din sa ATM machine. Very simple you dont need to bring cash.

    Ang una kong basa sa title saan makakabili ng Audi haha

    Anyway, I think mas praktikal kung US Dollar na lang bitbitin mo dun...sobrang taga yung rates ng Aussie Dollar pag sa Pinas mo kunin...hindi kasi siya primary currency for exchange sa atin...we're more on HKD, SGD, Yen at Riyals kaya mas mahal sa atin ang palitan ng AUD hehe

    Yup to make sure na makakapag withdraw. Ako nman 4 years ago dinala ko BPI ATM card ko nun nakapag withdraw nman ako basta nakita ko lang ang cirrus logo. Importante may dala kayu na isa pang ATM card like debit card or credit card para kung kinain ang card nyo or accidentally na debit ang ATM nyo at least may reserve kau na ATM card to withdraw. Make sure na bago ang ATM machine na gagamitin nyo at mas maganda kung bank name na ATM Machine. Research na lang kau ng mga Bank name sa oz.

    In my opinion dumoble pa ang bayad sa exchange rate kung magpapalit ulit ng US dollar to AU dollar sa oz kasi ganun din pag dating sa oz hanap din Money changer. To be practical AU dollar ang dapat bilhin papaanu kung ang arrival flight madaling araw tapos Sunday pa. Malamang sarado ang money changer sa airport tapos gutom na ang pasahero. I'm not sure kung tinatangap sa loob ng airport ang US dollar to buy food.

    The best is bumili ng AU dollar ng mga AU$1000 para sa food or pang transfo. At yung natitira na savings i deposit sa Credit Card like Citibank or any international debit card or yung savings account International ATM card then mag withdraw na lang sa OZ. Mas maganda kung yung bank ninyo ay puede mag online banking mas madali yun makapag bank transfer kahit nasa oz na kau. Here in Australia most client using online banking no need to go over the counter especially paying bills.

    cheers

    @TotoyOZresident medyo off topic ako boss pero what about rent? Diba humihingi sila ng bond? So dapat kasama yun sa icoconvert kong pera to AUD? Or..do they accept credit card para sa rent? hehe
  • gemini23gemini23 WinPosts: 265Member
    Sa palagay ko mas maganda dalhin ang Au$ kaysa US$, ang laki kasi ng commission sa ibang money changers, parang natandaan ko yung pinagpalitan ko noon nasa 12% commission,kaya yung US$200 na pinapalit ko sa nasa Au$160++ na alng binigay sa kin. Saka wala naman tumatanggap ng US$ sa mga stores di ba? Kelangan talaga ipapalit mo yun sa Aussie dollar or gamit ka ng card.

    Follow your heart but trust your gut.

    Kung mayrun na kayu matutuluyan at kapitbahay nyo nman mayari nung tutuluyan ninyo puede nman kau mag bayad ng cash. Puede din nman on line banking o tinatawag na bank transfer kukunin mo lang account nung land lord ninyo then puede mo i send ang payment to his or her account. Pag send mo ng bank transfer on the follwing day receive na nya. Masasanay nman kau pag dito na kau about electronic banking.

    Options:

    I do not prefer big bank sa pinas kasi mas mababa ang palit nila at kailangan mo pa yata na may account sa kanila

    1. Go to money changer sa pinas para may AUD ka na once you landed sa Australia.
    - kaso hindi sila madalas na may avialable na AUD. At hindi mo alam kung gnao kalaki ang avialable AUD nila. Pero mas mataas sila mag palit compare sa big bank sa pinas.

    2. Open a Citibank USD account sa pinas.
    - Last time I check (few years ago hehehe0, you can withdraw money from ANY CITIBANK ATM machine around the world WITHOUT extra charges/fees, so exchnge rate lang ang (USD -> AUD ) and issipin mo on that day na mag withdraw ka.

    - tested when going to US. Withdraw the USD bank account open in pinas sa CItibank ATM sa US - no charges. Makuha o same USD amount kung ano meron sa pinas.

    Since sa Citibank AUStralia mo withdraw, exchange rate lang ang issue. Still no extra charge for transaction fees or withdraw fees.

    Consult Citibank para siguroado at kung ganon parin ang systema nala

    3. I bring USD as pocket money (make sure hindi over 10kAUD yung total na dala mo na cash)
    - else kailangan mo declare pag over 10k AUD ang dala mo na cash.


    In my experience, ginawa ko lahat.
    - nag papalit na ko sa money changer para may enough AUD ako when I landed in AUS for expected expenes in Australia.
    - As backup, nag open din ako ng CItibank USD account. Tpos I bring hte ATM card. Pra I cna withdraw from CItibank ATM machine dio sa Austrlaia if kailangan ko spare chas.
    - Nagdala din ako ng USD as pocket money in case na kailangan ko ng spare na cash at wala kao mahanap na Citibank ATM machine.

    @LokiJr

    Payment can be made:
    - pwedeng credit card payment sa account ng real estate agent
    - direct cash depsit sa account nung realestate agent if di pwede credit card payment
    - kung shared accomodation (pwedeng cash ang bayad)

    Kung bagong dating ka, syempre wala ka pa credit card sa Australia hehehe...
    Pwede mo naman gamitin credit card mo sa pinas kaso may fees involved.

    Kung wala ka pa credit card, cash nalang cguro.
    Estimate mo nlang kugn gano kalaki ipapapalit mo to AUD sa pinas.

    @JClem Open a citibank USD account. As far as i know wla sile transaction fee as long as withdraw ka sa citibank ATM machine in AUS. Consult Citibank if they still have this offer.

    Pwede bumili ng AUD sa SANRYS money changer. May branch sila sa sm makati and alabang town center and greenhills yata. Pwede din through chinabank, may mga clients sila na money changers din tapos sila ang parang nagbbroker pero siyempre may additional premium ang chinabank (okay din ito at least dadaan sa bank mismo yung AUD, sure kang hindi fake). =)
