That is crystal clear: the refusal ...
It very much depends on the airline / booking site / travel agent he uses. Some let you enter your passport details when you arrive at the airport, others require it up front (especially travel agents).

I do this also with USD when I travel. When you get to Europe don't convert the money immediately. Keep it in your bag/hotel safe unless you need it. Chances are you won't need it, so by not converting it immediately you save yourself possibly considerable cost converting to Euros and then converting the leftover back to AUD. If you do find yourself ...

Where you are from and where you want to go? For flights around Europe you could try airixo.com. It will show you all the places you can fly to from your location, when and for how much (you can filter the results by maximum number of changes etc.).
