How to Get the Best Tourist Exchange Rates

by BillJ

We show you how to compare tourist exchange rates to get the best tourist rates for your travel money.

How to Get the Best Tourist Exchange Rates

Getting the best tourist currency rates can seriously increase your spending power while you're on holiday overseas, while missing out on the top rates can seriously dent it.

However, even if you get the top sterling to euro tourist rates, shelling out on delivery charges or buy back guarantees can reduce your travel money's value to a point where a different provider might be a better bet.

You'll need to consider a number of factors beyond the latest rates of exchange to make sure you choose the best travel money package for your needs.

In four simple steps, here's what you should consider to get the best deal:

1. Find the best tourist exchange rate

Check the currency used in your holiday destination and use our comparison table to find the latest exchange rates on offer - whether you're after euros, US or Australian Dollars, even Turkish Lira. You can search the table by clicking on the relevant currency or column.

For example, click on 'euros' to show a euro rate comparison listing the best tourist rates euro to pound (telling you how many euros you would get per 1 you want to exchange). If you're travelling to America, simply re-order the table to show the tourist rates pound to dollar (US).

2. What's the minimum/maximum purchase?

Consider your cash budget for while you're away on holiday as a figure in pounds sterling first. Then, check each company to see if this figure fits within their minimum or maximum online purchase limits.

If you only want to exchange 100, you can immediately exclude providers with a minimum purchase limit of more than that from your comparison; likewise if you want to exchange more than their maximum limits.

3. What's the minimum order for free delivery?

Most travel money providers impose a separate minimum purchase limit for your travel money order to qualify for free delivery. If your order won't qualify for free delivery then check if the delivery charges will negate any benefit from its exchange rates to see if it's best value overall. It's also worth checking to see if you can pick up your currency at the airport or from an in-town branch free of charge.

4. Is there a buy back charge?

Buy back guarantees mean your forex provider will buy the travel money you don't use back at the same rates you were originally given. These clauses can be a useful safety net if you expect to have a substantial amount of travel money left over, but compare their charges to see if it's worthwhile.

Overall, you should compare the travel money packages on offer based on the four features listed above to find the best value travel currency, wherever you're heading on holiday.

If your date of travel is close at hand, you may want to priorities companies who can guarantee next day delivery, but it's those steps that can make sure you get the best tourist rates for your holiday cash.
