When comparing the cost of buying or selling foreign currency it is important to look at the overall cost not just the exchange rate. Many companies appear to be offering an excellent rate for foreign currency exchange but add commission and/or delivery fees. They may advertise an online rate but give a lesser rate in store. So make sure that when you compare travel money deals that you are comparing like for like.
It is always a good idea to plan ahead in order to get the best travel money deal. In the time leading up to your travel date keep an eye on exchange rates so you are not buying your currency in a rush just before you travel but can make the purchase when rates are at a suitable level. For example the Euro exchange rate has fluctuated greatly recently so it has been important to keep a track of the rate before deciding when to buy the Euros. Rates for foreign currency can also fluctuate during a day.
Also, try and avoid buying your foreign currency in a hotel as the rates hotels offer are often unfavourable by comparison to a bureau de change. Airport foreign currency exchange bureaux are also often less competitive, so don’t wait to purchase your foreign currency at the last minute in the airport.
It is always a good idea to purchase some currency in small denominations so that you have money for transport and tips upon arrival at your destination.
