Tips for getting the best deal when exchanging money

These simple tips will help you get more bang for your buck when buying currency:

  • Look online. Visiting several currency exchanges in person to try and find the best rate is tiring and time consuming. It's quicker and easier to shop around online, order your currency over the Internet and then head instore to collect the cash.
  • Know the current mid-market rate. The mid-market rate is the "real" exchange rate. The exchange rate you receive from a currency exchange service will include an additional fee on top of the mid-market rate, so check the current mid-market rate on Google to find out how much your transaction is really going to cost.
  • Read the fine print. Make sure you're aware of all the fees that will apply to your transaction before handing over any money.
  • Don't exchange money at the airport. Airport exchange bureaus offer a quick and convenient way to get your hands on the currency you need. However, because they have a captive market and little competition, they usually charge high fees and offer disappointing exchange rates.
  • Avoid foreign ATMs. Another easy and convenient way to acquire the currency you need is to simply withdraw money from a foreign ATM. Unfortunately, using this option also means accepting high fees and low exchange rates.
