How Do I Choose the Rate That Applies to Me?

The currency exchange rates here and in other sites is based on "interbank exchange rates". These rates are based on trading in a global network of more than 1,000 banks, and are not available through consumer or retail channels.

Consumers may use these rates as a reference only. To obtain actual retail rates, contact your local financial institution or currency exchange.

Retail spreads (the difference between the bid and ask prices) for smaller amounts are not reflected in these interbank prices since they vary among payment systems, countries and banks.

For these retail rates use this formula:

Value you will pay = value you get in this converter + X% (due to the margin for the cost of the exchange services).
The value X% varies from 1 to 10% or even more and depends on many factors. Examples:
1 - ATMs typically add 2 percent;
2 - Credit cards typically add 2 to 3 percent;
3 - Banks and foreign exchange kiosks add around 5%;
4 - Some Internet based foreign currency exchange agencies add 11 percent or even more.

How and where to exchange currency?

When it comes to exchange rates, you should know all your options. The practice can vary from country to country. In one country, you may have to change your money at the airport, and in other countries you may need to buy your foreign currency in advance. All options have its pros and cons. Perhaps the easiest way is to visit your bank – almost all banks can convert your home currency to dollars, Euros, Pounds and other major currencies.
