The exchange rates published are the “Buy TT” rates from our bank (Westpac NZ), as these are the relevant rates for buying a foreign currency. Note that there is a discrepancy between this rate and the “Sell TT” rate, which is often mistakenly quoted by some agents.
This rate is valid for a period of 7 days from the time the invoice is sent out.
Please Note: There is small incremental buffer included to counter any fluctuations within the time period before payment is made.
Following the recent fires that affected valleys about 30 kms from Nelson city, yesterday afternoon there was a further small blaze of around 3 hectares in size centered around the Mautere Valley, approximately 45 mins drive from Nelson City. Fire crews worked hard to contain the blaze which is now under control, however there are still hotspots which the fire crews have been working on today. At this time we understand cordons are still in place on roads around the Moutere Valley so it is recommended to avoid this area while the fire crews continue work at the fire.
We continue to monitor the situation and will provide any updates as required.
