How much does it cost to travel to Australia

In most places you can pay with credit card, although we recommend you to have Australian dollars. You can withdraw them directly in ATMs. It will be the same or cheaper than changing currencies in the exchange houses.  Calculate that you will need in cash about 20AU$ per person and day that you are in Australia.

Forget about carrying money and change currency at the airport, in any tourist office or on websites like Ria or Exactchange. They will always tell you that they do not apply commissions but they have them included in the exchange rate and they are usually between 6% and 10% even. The logical alternative is to pay whenever possible by credit card. But be careful because most banks apply a 4% commission on credit card payments abroad (and those that say they do not apply it, such as EVO bank, hide their commission in the exchange rate).

If you want to save this extra cost, do not hesitate. Travel with REVOLUT. A new free card, with an App from which you will control everything in a very intuitive way and that always applies the interbank exchange rate.

In the posts we have done so far we have talked about how extraordinary Australia is, which is 100% true, but today I want to bring you a bit of reality and talk about one of the drawbacks when deciding to travel to Australia:

Accommodation in Australia will be one of your biggest expenses. The price will depend on whether you want to stay in a hotel, hostel, motorhome or camping. It will also depend on the date of your trip, the city you are visiting, the facilities you need, etc. In other words, there are many variants when it comes to choosing accommodation and it will depend on the type of trip you want to make.

There are passes such as the Discovery Pass and the Queensland Coastal Pass, for train travel through the state of New South Wales and Queensland. It would be similar to what we know as Eurail in Europe.

The supermarket products are more expensive than we are used to, but it is still a very economical way to spend your days in Australia. If you pay attention to the prices and compare the products you can save a lot of money.
