When you are traveling internationally for business or pleasure, the last thing you want to worry about is exchanging your money. Many international travelers leave getting foreign currency for the last minute and are blindsided by exorbitant exchange rates in airports and local hotels. Others wait until arriving at your destination country to use local ATMs. This can quickly add up unnecessary fees since many debit cards or ATMs have lower maximum withdrawal limits and the local ATMs usually charge a withdrawal fee plus your own card fees may apply.
The best advice anyone can give when it comes to currency exchange is to shop around as not all exchange companies are created equal. The best questions to ask are about the final cost of the foreign currency (either how much will 500 euros cost you in U.S. dollars after the rate and fees or how much in U.S. dollars you will receive for 500 euros after all rates and fees) and if it is available conveniently for you to arrange a pickup. To exchange money in the U.S. or abroad, many people are often surprised to find they need to pay a hefty fee or wait several days before making a second trip to pick up their currency. Fortunately at CXI, we take all of those worries away.
