Travel Money - take a mixture

When traveling abroad, it is useful to have some cash in the relevant currency; as you may find that some places may not accept payment cards or it could just be the case that you may want to tip in cash or make small purchases. Don't make the mistake of buying cash at the airport or at your local bureau de change. The commission fees are often high at these establishments and the exchange rate is usually poor. Even when there is no commission for the exchange, the rate offered is usually very poor and the customer receives poor value for money.

Commission Free Buy Back

Often,when travelling abroad or when you take a holiday abroad, travellers will come back from abroad with some of their foreign currency / travel money unspent so before you buy any travel money it is worth checking if the foreign exchange provider will buy back your remaining cash without commission. that way you will not get charged for changing the currency back to your home currency

Ordering in Advance via the Internet

Most travel money companies will offer you a delivery service where a courier will bring your travel money direct to your home or office. There are also options for Next day delivery as long as you order by a certain time; and generally you will not have to wait more than two days if you order after that specified time. Some providers also give you the option of picking the foreign currency up at a branch if you would prefer and many have branches at the airport. If you order via the internet in advance; you can avoid the queues and unnecessary journeys to collect your cash.

Commission and Exchange Rates

The commission rates vary depending on where you order from, avoid buying at the airport or local travel money agents as you will not get the most for your money, by ordering in advance or by using the foreign exchange companies listed you will get the exchange rates at competitive prices. These do differ slightly from provider to provider and fluctuate daily so it is advisable when buying currency to shop around for the best rates; but also to consider delivery charge, time and method as you may have a preference or need the money quickly.
