How do you get your yen online?

There are several ways you can get your Japanese yen when comparing online:

  • Buy online and have your money delivered: some providers may charge a delivery fee depending on the amount you exchange

  • Buy online to collect in a branch: this avoids delivery charges, but make sure you live close to a branch to collect

  • Reserve a rate online, then buy in a branch: find a rate you want, and only pay to exchange when you get to the branch

When you reserve a rate online, you get a fixed time to claim it, e.g. 24 hours. Make sure you give yourself enough time to get to your local branch if you choose this method.
