Hi, hiya Ewalina! What ´s up? 
´Bye! Bye for now. See ya! Ta-ra (Northern English)  I´ll be seeing you. 
A bit old-fashioned now is ´Toodle-oo´, as is ´cheerio´.

Here in the UK, we usually say "cheerio" which is another way of saying "goodbye".

/I also have " Goodbye" and some other cards. But I can ´t load them as the size is too big. If you are interested I can do it via e-mail.

In the land downunder ...

hello - hi - hiya - heeey - howdy - hi, how are you today? - hi, how are you going? - greetings - what´s up (by the younger generation)  Please note, G´day is seen as typical Australian but in fact it is not commonly used anymore, and is really an expression found in the outback much more than in the city
 
bye - see you later - see ya (you) -  have a nice day - catch you later
 
Cheers
