Would You Like A Trip With Your Stamps?

Reporter Angela Saurine writes on the website that Australia Post is set to open travel agencies and currency exchanges inside post offices around the country.

According to the report, "Australians will be able to buy a stamp and a trip to Bali at the same time..."

She goes on to pen, "The Brisbane GPO in Queensland became the first of hundreds of stores to open a Harvey World Travel outlet today where customers can book domestic and international flights, accommodation, cruises and tours.

"Australia Post has also launched its own travel insurance product and is partnering with American Express to offer currency exchange outlets in 200 of its post offices."

Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour is quoted in the piece as saying there was a boom in Australians travelling overseas thanks to the strong dollar and it was the perfect time to launch the new services, which would be a "one-stop-shop'' for travellers.
