If you are going on holiday you’ll probably need to get some currency. This can be pretty expensive – banks and bureaus have different exchange rates and you can be charged fees. Just because your bank says it doesn’t charge it’s customers commission doesn’t mean it’s the best rate.
That’s where this fantastic site from MoneySavingExpert comes in. TravelMoneyMax compares different foreign exchange desks to find the best rate. It’s very simple. Just enter the currency you need, when you need it and whether you can collect it or get it in post. It’ll also find you the best deal if you have any money left over at the end.
Combine it with a credit card designed for spending overseas (see our 3 Useful Types of Credit Card post) and you can put what you save towards another pina colada.
