Hi

Take $100Au Notes (better exchange rate) in good condition (that is not torn or worn). Use your credit card for large purchases.

It is safer not to carry around passport to exchange traveller's cheques.

Hi Wendy

I am curious, how do you get a better rate for $100 note? We got the same rate whether changing $20, $50 or $100. We changed all of our money at a Kodak moneychanger.

Thanks Annette

Some places (in fact quite a few) do offer a lower exchange rate for notes that aren't 50s or 100s.

There are ATMs all over the place and they are safe to use but just remember that some don't prompt you to take your card out of the machine and give you your money before the card pops out. It can be very easy to leave your card behind.

Places like Amed, in the north, though, don't have any ATMs.
