Don’t lose money! Find Exchange Rates and Where to Exchange Money When Traveling

money exchangeHere’s a website I use constantly before going on a trip, to make sure I get the best exchange rate in a foreign country:
www.xe.com

Western Union can be a good name to have in mind if you need a currency exchange bank, as they have locations all over the world. Go to Western Union‘s site and find the address closest to your location.

Nonetheless, Western Union, hotels, local banks or the currency exchange services at the airport not always give you the best rates and charge high fees, so if you have some local money in your wallet for the first cab ride and can wait until you get to the city, you may be able to get more out or your money.

Here are few that I have used in the past and trust, if you know of any other, please add your comment below!

Argentina:
Metropolis Casa de Cambio S.A. (find locations here)

Brazil:
Action Cambio (site)

England:
Thomas Cook (site)

Note to the wise: while you want to get the best rates, beware of scams from small stores with men in front selling you their service or any other place that offers ‘too good to be true’ rates. You might end up with some fake bills! Always give preference to the chain companies!

All this, or course, if you traveled with some cash and really need to exchange money. However I would strongly recommend for you to have an alternative payment / cash resource option, such as a credit or debit card.
