There have been so many times when I've read a post and then reach automatically for the "Like" button, only to think " oh, yeah, I'm on the DIS! Not Facebook!! "

this is what my bank has the exchange rate at: AUD 1 = USD 0.946200

according to my fx4u website, the exchange rate is AUD 1 = USD 0.944, or usd 1 = aud 1.06.

poo bum wee.

So when the Aussie dollar is above, do you guys tend to convert to cash and keep it somewhere? Load up travel cards?

I was just going to pay off the booking as soon as possible when the aussie dollar is above, if it is low and I have some more money saved up, pay for the flights in AUD, then when it goes above again, load up a travel card.
