US Currency Surges Just In Time For Discover The Americas Expo This Weekend

2nd August 2017

Last week the US dollar cracked 80 cents against our Aussie dollar for the first time since May 2015. While news rooms and politicians are arguing over how, why and who, it’s undeniably excellent news for Australians looking to travel to the states. What’s more, it’s happened right ahead of the Discover the Americas Travel Expo.

The 2017 Discover the Americas Travel Expo will open its doors in Brisbane and Perth this Sunday 6th August, and in Melbourne on Sunday August 13TH.

While traditionally tour companies, airlines and hotels provide unbeatable deals available only at the expo, the surge in the US dollar will make this year’s deals even more enticing. Whether you want to visit Hawaii, Alaska, explore the USA’s biggest and brightest cities, or venture south to the Caribbean and South America, there are cruises, guided holidays and self-drive itineraries heavily discounted on the expo day.

With the Australian dollar so strong against the US dollar, now is the time to lock in your US currency too. Escape Travel’s in-house foreign exchange experts, Travel Money Oz, will be at the Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne expos, and have shop fronts and pop ups in Escape Travel stores Australia-wide. Not only can you purchase currency, Travel Money Oz also have a Key to the World currency card. It’s not just US dollars available either, the card can be loaded with up to 10 different currencies, and being a Mastercard is widely accepted around the world.

Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to get an unbeatable holiday deal to the Americas, and make the most of the currency surge.
