I have a Citibank debit card that has zero fees on foreign currency transactions. I use it to buy online from Japan and the US.

Are you actually trying to get phyisical cash in USD?

Have you gor a UAE exchange vendor near you? I've found their rates to be better than all the other places I've been to, plus they don't charge commission.

Heading to the US in December and I exchanged all my USD there.

As people have noted in the last week, the exchange rate with the US$ has reached 80 US cents this week, and the AU$ is gaining against other major currencies as well (especially the yen, which like the US$, is now at about the same rate as it was 2 years ago, after dropping as low as 75yen).

As of today, according to xe.com, these are the current rates for AU$1...

- US$ - 0.7979 (up 4 cents in last 6 weeks)
- GB - 0.6094 (up 2 pence in last 6 weeks)
- JP - 88.561 (up 6 yen in last 6 weeks)
- EU - 0.6798 (up 1 cent in last 6 weeks)
- NZ$ - 1.0654 (up 2 cents in last 6 weeks)

(bank and paypal rates are 2-3% less than the figures above)

- US$ - 0.7965 (down 1.5 cents)
- GB - 0.5902 (down 1.5 pence)
- JP - 89.205 (up 2 yen)
- EU - 0.6665 (down half a cent)
- NZ$ - 1.0861 (down 2 cents)

(bank and paypal rates are 2-3% less than the figures above)

The AU$ is down against almost everything, except the Yen, which is getting better and better for buying JP toys lately... up almost 15 Yen in just the last year. It peaked at over 90 Yen last week, which was its previous record two years ago.
