Easy holiday money

If you’re going on holiday, TSB Foreign Exchange makes arranging all your foreign currency needs fast and easy. Whether you prefer the immediacy of cash, the security of travellers cheques, or the convenience of a Multi-Currency Cash Passport - we can help. 

Foreign Currency

With more than 28 currencies available, it’s easy to organise your holiday money before you leave so you have local cash from the moment you arrive – perfect for small expenses like taxi trips, tips and snacks.

Plus, you can change your notes back into New Zealand dollars*, or deposit funds directly into your TSB Bank account when you return.
We can also arrange American Express Travellers Cheques, which can be exchanged worldwide at any one of thousands of banks and foreign exchange locations, and replaced if lost or stolen.

Please note we may need to see your identification (Passport or NZ Drivers Licence and bank card embossed with your name). If you’re not a TSB Bank customer and are not paying by EFTPOS, we’re not able to buy or sell more than NZD $1,000.

*Coins not exchanged.
