  • Business Purposes: Business travellers or those attending conferences abroad may require foreign currency for incidentals or small purchases.
  • Education Abroad: Students studying abroad may need foreign currency to cover living expenses or tuition fees if electronic payment methods aren't available.
  • Gifts or Remittances: People may send foreign currency as gifts or remittances to family or friends living overseas

No Currency Exchange at Airport and Hotel


It is generally not advisable to exchange currency at airports and hotels as they charge high exchange rates and transaction fees. Their exchange rates are typically significantly worse than the mid-market rate, the average rate at which currencies are traded. In addition to the unfavourable exchange rate, they may apply additional transaction fees, commissions, or service charges.

In summary, although exchanging currency at the airport or hotel may appear convenient due to their immediate accessibility, the drawbacks outweigh the benefits. By planning and using alternative methods, you can save money and make the most of your travel funds. Use the branch locator to find the best currency exchange services near you.
