We are travelling to New Zealand on a tour and would like to know the best places to exchange USD which we will be carrying. Can anyone please tell us where is the best place to change USD to NZD and whether the Bank counter at the Auckland Airport will offer the same rates as the ones downtown. Will also be happy if you could kindly inform the indicative exchange rates currently offered by Banks against USD Currency. We have ruled out the ATM options against credit/debit cards since there is a charge involved by the Banks and will be carrying currency as we have some USD left over from our earlier overseas trips. We will require local currency as we are on conducted group tour and will require money for food, grocery, shopping etc. and other activities. Any advice will be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
