Foreign Exchange

Central Coast Credit Union has partnered with American Express Foreign Exchange to offer you simple solutions to your foreign currency requirements. Whether you are going overseas for a shopping spree or sending money to a family member abroad for their birthday, we offer a range of secure and convenient options to suit your needs.

Sending Money overseas:

Telegraphic Transfers


A Telegraphic Transfer (TT) allows you to electronically send funds directly into your beneficiaries account in a specified currency. TT's are the preferred method to make large value international payments as they are processed quickly, cost-effectively and securely in over 100 currencies.

To send a TT, you will need to contact our office where we will facilitate the payment for you. You will be required to provide the following information in order to process a TT with us:

  • Your street address
  • Beneficiaries name and street address
  • Beneficiaries bank account details

Foreign Currency Drafts

Foreign Currency Bank Drafts, commonly called drafts or foreign currency cheques, are simply Bank cheques made to a recipient who can deposit the cheque directly into their own account. Drafts are an ideal payment method when you have small amounts to pay or you do not know the banking details of the person or beneficiary you need to send money to. Drafts can be ordered via our office and are typically available within 48 hours.

Heading overseas:

When traveling overseas, consider taking your travel funds with you in the form of a mixed travel wallet. Spreading your funds out across several formats allows for safety and convenience.
