Tips for getting the best deal when changing money

  • Watch for hidden fees. If the service provider doesn’t charge any fees for the transfer, it generally means that there’s an added margin on the exchange rate. A less favourable exchange rate may cost you more than paying a nominal fee. So before you agree to a deal, make sure to ask for the fees upfront.
  • Find out the current mid-market rate. Always check the current mid-market rate through a quick search online before heading down to the money changers so you can easily identify the companies charging the best (or worst) margin.
  • Shop around for rates. Most money transfer providers embed a calculator on their websites, which allows you to check how much foreign currency you can exchange with your currency upfront. Get an idea of the rates available online before heading down to your nearest money exchange agent.
  • Pay with a bank transfer or cash. Whenever possible, avoid paying for your currency with a debit or credit card, as you may be charged a cash advance rate and fee.
  • Avoid using ATMs. Foreign ATMs typically charge a flat fee around S$5 to S$15 per transaction. Try to anticipate how much you need and exchange sufficient currency prior to your trip to avoid high bank fees and less ideal exchange rates.
  • Pre-buying foreign currency. If you’re not in a hurry, consider buying currency from services like the ones listed above. This way, you can benefit from the added advantage of observing exchange rates and lock in the one you want.
  • Steer clear from money changers at the airport. Airport vendors tend to charge high fees and offer less competitive rates. So if you need cash before you arrive at the airport, plan ahead by pre-buying currency if possible.
  • Request a price match. If you’ve found a better deal from another provider, there’s no harm in asking for a price match. You may even walk away with a better deal.
