There are dozens of reasons why you should buy foreign currency well before you travel, and there isn’t a good reason why you should wait. You can save a substantial amount of money and time, and you will not have to deal with unnecessary delays and other issues that may come up if you try to find a currency exchange in your destination country. The savings in terms of dollars can end up being in the hundreds because of outrageous services fees that many airport currency exchanges and other services will charge you. If you can, you should always buy foreign currency ahead of time, and doing so will ensure that you get the most favorable rates while avoiding service fees.

Cash can be hard to find if you don’t buy foreign currency ahead of time

Many countries only accept cash in their own local currency, and this can end up costing you travel delays or other hassles if you don’t have the cash you need. At XChange of America we can advise you on the right amount of cash that you should buy prior to your trip. It can be very difficult to find cash at the last minute in the currency that you need, and when you are in an unfamiliar place you can end up wasting several hours. To avoid this, buy foreign currency before your trip, and XChange of America can help you determine the right amount that you will need.
