AUD to JPY Narita Airport

Hi guys,

I visited the Narita Airport website and checked out foreign currency rates. I'm a little confused and was wondering if someone could help.

If I exchange $1000 AUD in Australia for JPY I would get 87305 JPY based on today's rates.

If I was to exchange $1000 AUD at Narita Airport today, how much JPY would I receive?

I think it would work out better for me to wait until I arrive in Japan. Why is the rate better at Narita?

Thanks heaps guys,

>> Why is the rate better at Narita?

It's a free market. Supply and demand. It is not better at Narita for cash. On the other hand T/C always have better rates than cash. However it may take an extremely long time to cash T/C at the airport. Travelex is fast but you pay more.

Does it take a very long time to cash American Express T/C's at Narita Airport ?

I will be carrying American Express T/C's in Japanese Yen and would want to exchange that for Japanese Yen cash. How long would it take ? Roughly how much commission would I have to pay ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
