If you missed anything – don’t worry! As always we’ve rounded up the best stories from this week into our review.

In our Travel Guide, we focused on some of the can’t-miss Australian destinations. There were so many options, it was almost impossible to narrow it down. So whether you want to enjoy a wine tasting or some surfing, find out where to go and how much money to bring! READ MORE

Save over $1000 on flights to Europe


We love a European vacation as much as anyone, but we know getting there can be a drain on the finances. We put this post together to find out where the cheapest flights to Europe landed and who offered them. For example, if you’re planning a trip to England, flying into London may not be your most cost effective option! If you’re not worried about the price, we also found out which flights were the fastest. This way you can get off the plane, and onto your dream getaway quicker than ever before! READ MORE

Seniors’ Day


This week we highlighted what is one of Continental Currency Exchange’s ways of giving back to you – Seniors’ Day. Anyone 60+ can come in to their nearest branch any Monday to take advantage of some major savings. Fee reductions and cheaper exchanges are just a small part of what makes Seniors’ Day special. Find out more with our review of all the benefits. READ MORE


Lastly, as always, we rounded up the most important stories from the business world into one simple post. This week in ‘Headlines’ we took a look at the potential rise of oil prices, the US dollar on a high against the euro, India lowering their interest rate, and more! READ MORE

Next week is St. Patrick’s Day, but since we can’t make it to Ireland –  we’ll celebrate our own way! Beyond that, look for more of the great stories you’ve come to expect.
