Buying foreign currency for your holiday is all about making the most of your money with a good exchange rate. What your money will buy you can change from country to country depending on the currency, but the best thing you can do is make sure you’re not losing out by paying more than you need to.
How do I get the best exchange rate?
Finding a good exchange rate for your money is all about planning. You may find you’ll get less for your money if you buy foreign currency at the airport, or in particularly touristy places, as these bureaus will usually have the most expensive rates. With that in mind, it’s best to get ahead of the game and buy your currency well ahead of travelling so you can take advantage of lower exchange rates.
Visiting your local Asda Travel Money bureau in-store is a great option, as we’ll beat any exchange rate you find within 5 miles, so you can be confident you’re getting a great deal. Ordering online is also a great way to buy your travel money at a cheaper exchange rate compared to bureaux, airports and tourist destinations.
What’s the cheapest way to exchange currency?
One way to get a good exchange rate is to plan ahead and buy your currency before travelling, as what’s more difficult to predict is whether your money will be worth more or less when you’re abroad due to the ever changing currency values. You could spread out your currency purchases rather than buying in one go to reduce the effect of any changes in the international exchange rate.
Is it safe to order foreign currency online?
Buying foreign currency online from a reputable source is perfectly safe. There are security checks and systems in place to ensure your money is safe during the process. We only deliver your money directly to your home address where it must be signed for, or we hold it in-store for you to pick up.
Can you get commission-free travel money?
Many travel money providers and currency exchanges charge commission on the money you’re exchanging, which can make it more expensive. At Asda Money, we don’t charge commission on any of our currency exchanges, so you don’t have to worry about any extra costs when buying your travel money from us.
