Buying foreign currency from FOREX Bank has its advantages: you get a competitive rate, if you keep the receipt when you return you can sell back left-over currency free of charge, and last but not least, you avoid the risk of being stung by hidden charges which many foreign bureaux de change take. In the worst case scenario, they can reach 10% of the total amount!
You’ll also get a good rate when you withdraw money from ATMs abroad. Within the EU withdrawals are free. In return the card provider is allowed to take a currency conversion fee. If you have FOREX Bank’s Visa or bank card, this fee is amongst the lowest around, only 1% of the amount!
