How to Find the Best High Street Exchange Rates

Looking to travel to Europe? With the economic climate being somewhat unstable, getting the best deal for your foreign exchange can be tricky. Our guide will help you find the best euro exchange rates on the high street.

Piles Of Dollars

So, your bags are all packed and flights booked. All you need now is some money – what could be simpler, you might think; surely all high street exchange rates are pretty much the same, right?

Sadly that’s not normally the case. Indeed the difference between the good deals and the worst ones can sometimes be quite surprising. When making a high street exchange rate comparison it pays to understand how they think.

All highstreet providers are playing a precarious balancing act – providing an offer which appears to be enticing, while looking to squeeze as much money out of the unsuspecting customer as possible.

There are several ways they can do this. First, they can offer what appears to be a highly appealing exchange rate, but add on substantial commission rates and other charges.

Likewise, if you should see a provider proudly displaying a no commission sign in their doorway there’s a fair chance they’re raking that back through the exchange rate.

So how can you see through their fiendish plans and ensure you get the best high street exchange rate possible?

Know the territory

The best way to compare high street exchange rates is to understand the lay of the land by ensuring you keep track of the latest developments in the exchange rate. Keep track of it in the weeks leading up to your holiday so you’ll have a good idea of its movements and can have an idea what constitutes a ‘good’ exchange rate. This will also let you know about when is a good time to buy.

Exchange rates can be volatile so if you spot a moment when the rate appears to be in your favour you should grab it with both hands. For example, if you’re looking to travel to Europe, you should keep track of market movements and comparing that against the high street euro exchange rate.

The next step is to clearly understand the pricing of the services. You need to know firstly what the exchange rate is and secondly what charges will be added.

Equally, you should reassure yourself that the advertised exchange rate will apply to the amount that you want to change. Many providers will impose minimum sums below which their headline exchange rate no longer applies.

However all that information can be confusing, and it’s sometimes easier just to get a solid number you can expect to receive. Most high street providers will be happy to tell you how much you can expect to get while others will provide a simple calculator where you can enter a sum and instantly see how much you’re getting.

It’s a quick simple tool and is perhaps the clearest indication of best currency exchange rates on the high street.

But hold your horses, before you head out to make your euro exchange rate comparison on the high street, you might be able to save some time and money by staying home and firing up the computer.

High Street providers are increasingly opening up online services and are also offering customers price incentives in order to use them.

Online is potentially one of the cheapest ways to change money. As well as discounted exchange rates they increase the range and scope of companies you can approach.

As with anything on the internet, security will be a concern especially if you’re looking to transfer cash. Many companies will phone you after you’ve completed the order to check it was indeed you who made the order.

You can also check the FSA website to see if they are registered. This will offer a degree of reassurance, but it’s important to remember that this is not quite the same as being FSA Regulated. Foreign exchange is not regulated by the FSA and your funds will not necessarily be protected if a company should go to the wall. It’s always worth finding out how your funds will be stored before delivery.
