That we are charmed with travelling is clear enough. What we do not like so much sound the steps that we have to do just before enjoying our trip. Between doing the suitcase, throwing the passport, chamber of photos, or comfortable shoes, us it is not necessary to to forget change currency before coming to the select city. Our tickets of Aerobús do not also buy if we want to go to the airport of Barcelona of the most comfortable form.
If we are going to travel out of the European Union, beside worrying for our passport and for the clothes that we have to put in our bag, also we must find out well on what type of currency it is used in this country. This supposes that we will have to change our Euros into the local currency of the country, which they do not have the same value, into what the value of the products will be the same either. And now it is the moment in which we wonder: how be I what quantity of a currency I have to change into other one not to pay any more?
How many foreign coins I need?
To plan our trip with time is key to save. We must do an idea to us of how much we are going to use daily approximately, and that this serves us to determine how many Euros expressed in another currency, we are going to need.
Depending on if your trip is with the family, if it is alone, if it is of the third age, if they are great or a few days, or of if the use with card in the destination is extended, we will be able: To take everything changed from Spain or change of direction to take a small quantity for the first days and then to be changing or extracting cash. In addition, the type of applied change is better if we change more of once.
Do I change before the trip or in the destination?
Often we do not know what can work out better for us, if to change the money before the trip, in our country, or if to do it in the place of destination. We are going to need a different currency after landing, already be to take a taxi or a bus, to buy water, or a SIM card for connection to Internet, or to come to an event. Though there are many countries where the payment with card is generalized, in others there does not happen the same thing and the majority of the purchases of the day they are paid by cash. And so much in one as in others, the issuing bank of the card can receive us for using it out of the euro-zone.
It is important to know that in all the countries of the world we can look for banks and foreign exchange offices and there to change our Euros. But the types of change and the commissions can change enormously according to the chosen place. Also you can choose to extract cash in cashiers, though probably they do not accept the card or apply commission to you.
You can choose for any of two options, though knowing that not to take the currency changed house generates certain worry and to need an investment of considerable time.
What must I have clear before the change?
It is necessary to have clear that it is not the same thing coins that it spies. We believe many that it is the same thing, but we are wrong. The currency is the physical unit and the currency refers to the monetary unit of every country. In order that we understand it better, this means that the change of currency is the dealing Euro to the local currency of the country of destination. Nevertheless, the operations that do not imply physical movement of money, as transfers or checks, are named a currency exchange. This for the user can mean that it includes different costs of management or commission.
Other one of the points on which we must concentrate is in the difference between rate of purchase and sale. By rate of sale there is understood the money that is received on having changed to the currency of the country of destination. A concept different from that of rate of purchase, which is received on having turned the foreign currency that him can have exceeded in his trip.
Therefore, we still have clear that the bank option is the cheapest, though it is not immediate. If we want to obtain a quantity of money in foreign currency we will have to request it in advance in order that the branch could obtain it in time. And if what you want is not to lose anything of money in the change, the better thing is that you realize your payments with card of credit or debit in the country of destination, providing that you could. We recommend to you to withdraw the indispensable quantity of ready money from your bank in Spain, and to realize the rest of the payments with card. This way, only you will have to enjoy your destination.
