Making International Payments Stress Free

Sending money overseas is a hassle.  And keeping up with bill payments while traveling is the best way to disturb your otherwise stress-free holiday.  The sad reality is that when escaping your day to day life for the luxury of travel, the world at home still continues revolving.

Mortgage payments don’t wait until you’ve returned from a prolonged African Safari, and student loans will always be a nagging presence.  On top of that, even worse than returning home from an incredible trip and being forced to hang your laundry, is spending literally days sorting through the clutter of bills piled high in your letterbox.

There has to be an easier way.  Making and receiving international payments shouldn’t have to be a headache.

Bear in mind that when it comes to stress, it’s not the short-term issues that are the problem. It’s the long-term ones.

Many travelers only consider using their normal bank to make an international money transfer, or for regular international payments, not realizing that dedicated currency organisations exist which have access to the best exchange rates, and offer a far superior service.  These organisations do not replace banks, however they specialize in foreign currency, and therefore have a greater understanding of your foreign exchange requirements.

For a number of years now, Travelex Australia has been the world’s leading foreign exchange specialist. Their multi currency cash passport revolutionized the way travelers carry money overseas, and all major Australian airports and CBD’s are overrun with their stores. However on top of specializing in foreign currency, they also offer an international payments service.

Whether in the process of buying or selling a property overseas, keeping up with bills in a foreign country, or aiming to pay off international school fees, this kind of service is the only way to send money overseas without any hassle, and at a great rate.

Having now completed two international student exchange programs, it’s not only paying your loans on time in your home country which can prove to be a hassle.  Studying overseas is a priceless experience, but accepting an international placement means you’re faced with poor exchange rates, high transaction fees, and ridiculous conversion charges.  These all add up, and make the cost of studying abroad incredibly difficult on your student budget.

What I have come to realise is that these types of financial losses are all unnecessary, and can be completely avoided.


Studying abroad…stress free!

It’s therefore essential to secure the best possible price when making regular international payments.  Securing the best exchange rates upfront not only saves money, but also time; both of which are better spent enjoying time overseas.  Travelex Australia saves you both.

Travelers today have the ability to save on the cost of making international money transfers. Whilst we cannot control the exchange rates or fluctuating movements of the market, we do have the opportunity to make choices that can dramatically increase our chances of getting a good deal.  We do have the opportunity to makes choices which make the process of international money transfers stress free.

I now never have to worry about calendar reminders, or returning home to a cluttered letterbox; regular payment plans with Travelex means that my bills are paid on time, every time, regardless of whether I’m on African Safari or Ice Skating atop the Eiffel Tower.
