Get longer lasting travel money with Rate Move Guarantee

27th September 2019

Don’t be silly, wrap your travel money from unexpected exchange rate moves! 

Yeah, fair, the slogan doesn’t work as well for foreign exchange, but you get the gist. 

Travel and the bedroom have a lot in common.

A long, slow build-up... as you count down the days until takeoff
A few nervous fumbles... as you attempt to secure the best travel deals
A bit of compromise... to ensure you and your travel buddy will get maximum satisfaction from the holiday
A scream (or sigh) … as you undertake adrenaline-pumping activities or indulge in some much-needed relaxation
A bit of sweat… as you adjust to the new tropical climate
A feeling of elation... as you finally reach the climax of your bucket list adventure
A bittersweet warm glow tinged with nostalgia... as the holiday comes to an end. 

The need for protection is equally as important in the bedroom as it is when buying your travel money. That’s where Travel Money NZ comes in. For your foreign exchange that is, we won’t come barging into your bedroom… unless you want that? In which case can we direct you to our website? It has some very stimulating content. 



When it comes to travel money, it doesn’t matter how skilled you are, or how many times you’ve ah, exchanged before, there is no foolproof way to get the best exchange rate. Why? Well, exchange rates are constantly changing, and are influenced by a multitude of market factors from all over the world. You think the opposite sex is confusing? Try figuring out foreign currency movements.  

We get how complicated they can be, and understand that you want to maximise your travel money without too much hassle. Que the Travel Money NZ protection. 

While we can’t fit in the drawer of your bedside table under that questionable magazine, we can offer you Rate Move Guarantee. Straight up, it’s free, so that’s a bonus.

How does it work, you ask? Well, simply add it to your purchase at any of our 150+ stores across New Zealand and Australia, and if the exchange rate improves within 14 days of purchase, we will refund you the difference*. You can add it on to any purchase of USD, GBP, EUR, AUD, IDR, FJD, THB, JPY, SGD, CNY and CAD. Talk about minimum effort for maximum satisfaction! 

Still not convinced it’s worth it? Let’s check out some examples of where our protection would have seriously come in handy. 

When purchasing USD…

Exchanging NZD 2000 on the 9th of July would leave you with $1297.80 USD. 10 days later, on the 19th of July, the same amount would have given you USD 1333.20, a whopping USD 35.40 more. That’s a lot of New York hotdogs… and buns. 

When purchasing EUR…

Exchanging AUD 2000 on the 9th of July would have given you 1139.60 euros. 13 days later, on the 22nd of July, the same about would have given you 1166.60 euros. Aka an extra 27 euros or an extra croissant or two for every day of your two-week European holiday. 

At the end of the day, if you want longer-lasting travel money and can’t be bothered mapping out exchange rate movements to pinpoint the best time to buy (if you figure that out can you please let us know?), then Rate Move Guarantee is your new best friend. You simply can’t fake the pleasure you’ll take from capitalising on exchange rate movements. Be warned though, once you go back to Travel Money NZ for that first Rate Move Guarantee claim, you’ll never go back to any of our competitors.
