There are many fees that are associated to purchase travel money and you should become informed of them before exchanging or purchasing and currency. Each exchange rate will depend on the country and the company you are purchasing the cu
rrency from. Sometimes the exchange rate is in your benefit as you will get more money for
your dollar, but sometimes the exchange rate is low and you will get less money for your dollar.
The different exchange companies are varied and you want to make sure you have plenty of time to get your currency to get the best rates. The people that wait to the last minute will end up being charged very high rates at the airport as this is the worst place to purchase or exchange currency. You want to get your currency early and also make sure you travel with other forms of money such as a credit card or debit card.
Many places may not allow payment by credit card so you will need to have some cash on hand to last you for a few days. Normally the best places to get a good exchange rate and lowest fees are from the banks. Normally the rate at the bank is about 2.5% of all the money you are exchanging. Many times if you have an account with a partner bank or that bank than you may get a discount on the exchange fee.
It is best to order your currency at least a week in advance as most banks do not carry all types of currency. Some of the highest fees you can expect to pay are upwards of 8% but even with companies at the airport pre ordering can lower this fee. Another option is to use Traveler’s checks to get your cash though these are not as common as they once were.
Traveler’s checks are still popular because if something should happen and they are stolen or lost than they can easily be replaced. Just make sure you have the serial numbers recorded.
Additionally if you do not use the traveler’s checks then you can get a refund when you get back from your trip. This guaranteed insurance does mean that the check will cost more than getting cash but it can be worth it.
Credit cards tend to have the good exchange rates but you will be charged a currency conversion fee on all transactions which can add up.

The human mind can only observe, absorb and appreciate so much at any one time, so, after a short swim and with our crew going into mental overload, the tour party heads back to the boat, coach, and dusty, but happy journey home.
