Thread: Exchange Rate: AUD to SGD

  1. #1

    Default Exchange Rate: AUD to SGD

    Hello everybody.

    I'm just comparing rates at the money changers here (Perth) to the ones in Singapore.

    I'm quite sure that the rate will be better if I convert my Australian Dollars to Singapore Dollars in Singapore, rather than in Australia, but I'm interested to know the approximate difference. I know there are many websites online which can show exchange rates, but these usually show mid-market rates rather than the rates you can get at the local money changer - which I am interested in.

    I checked at the post office here today,
    AUD$1 = SGD$1.26

    What's the rate at the moneychangers there?
    Can you please have a look when walking past?

    Thank you very much

    ermm... u guys should look at the buy rate not sell rate when u check out money changers in SG (cos now the money changer is buying your AUD and giving u SGD).

    It's definitely better in Singapore. I agree. The Australian tax on currency is *_______*.

    I usually carry gold to Singapore.

    Most camera shops will accept it.
