    Default Money changer with best rates?

    I'll be leaving to aust soon for a trip. Was wondering if anyone has any money changers to recommend. Someone with good rates.

    If you r just changing a few hundreds dollar, u will get a couple of dollars more only.

    Minus off the transportation charges to go all the way there.

    Mustafa has the best rates for Rupees. They take in Rupees from Indian tourists... and offload to people who want to go back to India... so naturally, they have the best rates. But I don't know about other currencies.

    Usually, Change Alley is good... because you can shop around. Their rates differ depending on what they buy in at. You can also bargain if you buy enough. So, you get reasonably good rates.

    The rates at Changi Airport are not good at all. We checked both the counters in and outside duty free. Best deal is not over there. Another tip, try not to change in the weekends, do it from Monday to Friday. The exchange rate is worse on weekends, the money changers increase the rates just in case the market opens on Monday with bad exchange rates.

    I second this. Changed SG$ to HK$ back then and found that the shop opposite POSB branch in Change Alley offered the best rate.

    I usually change at Suntec city, the one near Giordano.

    Walked past the 2nd sty one near Carefour to check rates, the lady kept scratching her head constantly till scalp reddish......(walked faster away)
