No, we don’t have an outlet at the Airport. We are located in Port-Vila’s main street only.

We would recommend exchanging the minimum amount that is necessary to get into town and check other competitors.

Are your rates better than the airport or the banks?

Absolutely. We set our daily rates last to ensure we give the best rate.

Can I pay with a debit card or a credit card?

Yes, we have three ATM machines in our shops.

These machines will dispense Australian dollars that can be exchanged into Vatu.

This ATM is especially recommended for the Australian Card Holder as works like a domestic Australian transaction with no international fees.

The fee for using the ATM is 6$AUD as opposed to the bank’s ATM that charges 9$AUD.

What is the difference between “We Buy” rate and “We Sell” rate?

“The Buy” rate refers to the amount of Vatu we will pay for you Currency.

Multiply it by the amount of your foreign currency to receive your Vatu amount. For Example: If you have 100AUD and the “We Buy AUD” rate is 81.50. Multiply Your Foreign currency amount by the rate to receive the Vatu amount you will get. 81.50 * 100AUD = 8,150VUV

“We sell” rate refers to the amount of Vatu a currency will cost you.

Divide the Vatu amount by the rate to receive the amount of foreign currency you will receive. For example: If you have 10,000VUV and the “We Sell AUD “ is 82.50.

10,000VUV / 82.50 = 121.21AUD
