Is it right for me?

Buying New Zealand dollars

If you have an ASB account and have leftover foreign cash after an overseas trip, come into any ASB branch to exchange it to New Zealand dollars. You must be an ASB account holder.

Buying notes in foreign currencies

If you're planning some overseas travel and want cash in a foreign currency for your trip, we can help. Order foreign cash ahead of time with the ASB Mobile app or FastNet Classic internet banking and it will be delivered to any ASB branch, usually within 5 business days.

Our branches also stock some currencies that can be picked up immediately but we recommend ordering in advance to ensure the currency you require is available.
