    You can use the online service that we offer in partnership with our foreign cash partner Travelex. Under this partnership we have developed a dedicated currency exchange website that makes obtaining foreign cash for your travels all that much easier.


    Order your currency exchange online, pay using BPay or credit card, then nominate a BOQ branch for collection. Make sure you take the photo ID you nominate as a part of your order and your credit card (if paid by credit card) as well as a copy of your order when you go to collect your foreign cash at the branch. Once at the branch it will take only a couple of minutes to collect your order and you will be on your way.


    When you've returned from your trip, we'll even buy back any foreign cash that you weren't able to spend (please note that the sale of foreign cash to the Bank is subject to the Bank's policies as amended from time to time).


    And the best news of all, via this currency exchange service you’ll pay no purchase fee on all online foreign cash purchases for a limited time only!


    Don’t have a BOQ Account? No problem, this online currency exchange service is open to anyone with suitable ID (Drivers License or Passport) and who can pay using BPay or credit card payment methods.
