Suggested money tip when arriving and travelling in Singapore:
- Bring around NZD$300 in cash which you can use as a safety net and exchange at most hotels and on the street - Orchard Road has numerous kiosks.
- Withdraw the amount of SGD you think you will need for your stay as you go, or all at once (and place it in a hotel safe etc).
- Avoid airport money exchange kiosks - they most likely offer the worst exchange NZD to SGD rates. ATMs give you the market exchange rate without the greedy commission.
- Leftover SGD? If you have a small amount of Singaporean Dollars remaining, you can use them to settle your hotel bill extras, transfers back to the airport and/or apply them to a duty free purchase on departure (you can pay part cash, part card). Alternatively, banks will buy SGD (notes only, not coins) when you return to New Zealand for a better exchange rate than any airport kiosk.
