Default How to take 100,000 AUD

Hi,
What is the best option to take 100K as I don't have bank account in Australia

Travel Check ? or any other option

I have an Australian bank account. PM me for the details, and you can pay it in, and I'll look after it for you.

Yes! Open a bank account in Oz and get the money transferred.

Most, if not all of the big ones. NAB, ANZ, Commonwealth etc.

I'm with ANZ. Set up was easy from the UK. No complaints so far other than I now live in Coogee and there is no ANZ cash machine. Can transfer money to it but you cannot touch it till you enter the country and show your passport etc.

I used HiFx to transfer the money as better rate than the banks themselves. Wasn't £75k though so you might want to shop around for that amount.

NAB allow you to open an account online (google migrant banking), which you can then trasnfer money into. Once you arrive in Oz you then have an appointment with a migrant banker at a NAB branch who gives you your debit card and probably will try to sell you other stuff as well.

We opened an account last week, and within 24 hours had all the details to the account ready for when we arrive in 4 weeks time
