One of my daughters is moving to Australia. I'd like to be able to send her an allowance each week.

 

 

 

I'm looking for cheap ways to move money from NZ to Aus. I'm aware of money orders and sending via things like the traditional banks or paypal, but I'm looking for a better (read cheaper) way to do this on a regular basis. I've looked into getting her a loaded for travel card, but their terms say you must live in NZ. She is an ASB customer and has a debit visa, would simply paying into her NZ account work, if the card is only being used in Australia.

 

 

 

Any ideas appreciated.

 

 

 

Thanks

Transferwise and Currencyfair are both good and you get much better rates than the banks. It takes a couple of days for the cash to arrive.

Register Transfer Wise card on her name. Get the bank account number. Deposit to bank, money shows up on card.

Seconding the mention of TransferWise. The product is very good and also very quick when using to Australia (in my experience). Also very minimal fees.

For standard transfers with good rates / low fees I've used Currency Online a few times, though not for a few years. Good service too.

Just to be clear, TransferWise has launched its service in Australia and New Zealand last week - you can now get NZ and AU bank account numbers for deposit, which makes it very fast.
