How can I get the best exchange rate between US dollar and the Bosnia-Herzegovina convertible mark?

To get the best exchange rate between the US dollar and the Bosnia-Herzegovina convertible mark, it is a good idea to check the “real” mid-market rate first. This is the rate that the banks use when they trade between each other, and you can find this rate for example by looking the currency up on Google.

Once you know the mid-market rate, compare the exchange rate you are offered by various online money transfer services to this rate. You should pick the one that offers a rate closest to the mid-market rate, but keep in mind any fixed transaction fees that some services may charge you.

If, however, you are travelling to Bosnia-Herzegovina, you can choose to either bring US dollars with you and exchange them once you are in the country, or simply withdraw the local currency with your credit. Keep in mind that some banks charge a foreign currency transaction fee on overseas credit card use, so make sure to check that first.
