international currency and more

Planning to travel or send money overseas?

Dnister offers a selection of foreign exchange products – from currency exchange to money transfer.


 American Express – Foreign Exchange Services


Need foreign exchange? We’ve got you covered.

Dnister has partnered with American Express Foreign Exchange to offer you simple solutions to your foreign currency requirements. Whether you are going overseas for a shopping spree or sending money to a family member abroad for their birthday, we offer a range of secure and convenient options to suit your needs.


Sending money overseas

A Telegraphic Transfer (TT) allows you to electronically send funds directly into your beneficiaries account in a specified currency. TT’s are the preferred method to make large value international payments as they are processed quickly, cost-effectively and securely in over 100 currencies.

To send a TT, you will need to contact your closest branch who will facilitate the payment for you.

You will be required to provide the following information in order to process with us:

  • Your street address
  • Beneficiaries name and street address
  • Beneficiaries bank account details

Foreign Currency Bank Drafts, commonly called drafts or foreign currency cheques, are simply bank cheques made to a recipient who can deposit the cheque directly into their own account.

Drafts are an ideal payment method when you have small amounts to pay or you do not know the banking details of the person or beneficiary you need to send money to.

Drafts can be ordered at your nearest branch and are typically available within 48 hours.


Travelling overseas

We have the currency the locals prefer With over 60 currencies available we are confident we can provide you with the foreign cash you require, no matter where in the world you are going.

Order at your convenience online or place an order at any of our branches. Your foreign cash will be available for collection within 48 hours from any one of our branches or an American Express Foreign Exchange office of your choice.

Claim your local currency at your convenience Conveniently convert your foreign currency into Australian Dollars for your local spending requirements.

Should you have excess foreign cash, unused Travellers Cheques or receive a foreign currency cheque or draft, you are able to exchange these for Australian Dollars through our encashment service.
