Tips for getting the best deal when exchanging money

  • Compare your options. Shop online for the best deal before you head to your nearest exchange agent. Don’t be afraid to ask for a price match if you’ve settled on a company but their rates aren’t up to snuff.
  • Know the mid-market rate. Use Google or Reuters to check the rate that the banks trade at. Steer clear of companies that aren’t charging something similar.
  • Avoid paying with your debit or credit. Always use cash or a bank transfer to pay for foreign currencies to save money on hidden fees and charges.
  • Walk away from ATMs. ATMs can be convenient but are also more expensive for foreign exchange. Look for a decent kiosk to get better rates and avoid hidden charges.
  • Steer clear from airport vendors. Airport vendors are notorious for ripping off unsuspecting customers. If you know you need cash before you hit the airport, pre-buy currency at home to avoid high prices.
