Buy Foreign Currency Before You Travel

On July 20, 2012, in Cruise, Travel, by owentrvl

I am often asked about whether to purchase foreign currency prior to leaving for an international destination.

I think it’s a good idea:

- You don’t have to deal with it at the airport
- You know ahead of time what it is going to cost
- You will have the currency you need for tipping, taxi rides and small purchases

I found a company that is based in southern California and I have used their services several times.

Their rates are competitive and I am very satisfied with their service. You call them up and place your order and either pay by credit card or send a check.

The currency is sent via overnight service, so it is a very quick process.
