Tips for getting the best deal when exchanging money

  • Compare, compare, compare. You can typically find the best deal by comparing rates online or by calling a number of companies to ask for a quote.
  • Know the mid-market rate. Do a quick search for exchange rates on Google or Reuters before you settle on a service so you’ll know when a vendor is trying to charge too much.
  • Pay with cash or bank transfer. Avoid using plastic when paying for your currency because your bank might ding you with hidden charges and fees on the other end.
  • Steer clear of ATMs. ATMs often charge an arm and a leg for fees and offer a dismal return on the exchange rate.
  • Avoid doing business at the airport. Try not to purchase currency at the airport since those exchanges often drive up fees and offer poor exchange rates.
