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.
As you may have seen in media reports, today (Tuesday 22 October) the NZ International Convention Centre which is currently under construction, has sustained a fire.
At this stage it is still unknown how the fire has occurred, however emergency services were quick on the scene to control the blaze.
At this time we understand that some roads around the area and the Sky Tower have been temporarily closed. Once we receive updates on when these reopen we will be in touch.
Skycity Hotels have at this time had to make the decision to evacuate the entire SkyCity precinct, including both hotels, the Sky Tower and all F&B outlets, however staff are assisting any guests onsite.
We continue to monitor the situation and will provide an update as more information comes to hand.
