  • Your money could be protected from currency fluctuation (exchange rate risk)
  • You can hold over 40 different foreign currencies in one place
  • It's free to transfer money to family and friends in Australia
  • You get bank account numbers for Australia, in addition to UK, EU, and US
  • New for personal users: a TransferWise debit Mastercard® to spend in Australian dollars like a local
