Fiji Dollars at Nadi Airport

Hello,

I was hoping someone can help me with changing British pounds to Fiji Dollars at Nadi Airport when we land?

Is the bank at Nadi Airport 24 hour? and is the exchange rate better there than if i buy in the U.K.? Is it worth waiting and changing at Nadi Airport or changing before we leave?

Thanks

Jevon

If you use your ATM card you'll get a pretty decent rate.

The ATMs at the airport are open 24 hours and the currency exchange shops are open to meet all planes. However, their rate of exchange is not as good as you can get in Nadi. I can't comment on the British/Fijian exchange rate.

You can exchange cash at the Western Union exchange booth near the baggage claim area at the airport in Nadi.

The following link has information you may find helpful.

I'd exchange some at Nadi airport, and if you are going into Nadi town then exchange more there.

I only use an ATM for emergencies, as my bank charges a withdrawal fee of some A$15.

Check with your bank before going for any hidden fees if using a card.

As I'm in Australia I can't comment on your currency. But shop around at home and check what your exchanges are giving.

Have a great holiday.

If you go to the Fiji Times on line website at http://www.fijitimes.com/ and scroll down the page you will find ANZ's daily exchange rate for just about all the common currencies. ANZ has an exchange booth at the airport.

Also of interest I found that the BSP Bank publishes their daily exchange rates, they look too good and must involve some conversion fees, however can't find them.

bsp.com.fj/pages.cfm/home/exchange-rates/.

The rate they are giving converts to $1.896 FD for $1AU

Can someone confirm if there is a Westpac Pacific Banking ATM at the Arrivals or public areas at Nadi Airport?

My Australian bank doesn't charge a transaction fee to use a partner bank.
