While looking for options for currency exchange in Cape Breton, you’ll find providers fall into one of three categories: banks, exchange franchises or independent brokers. Each one has a different set of positives and negatives they each come with. Every individual must look within to decide what their needs are, and what they’re comfortable with, before deciding on what currency exchange provider is best for them. If you’re looking for the best foreign money exchange rates in Cape Breton or the best USD exchange rates in Cape Breton, then you may be best served to look to at an independent provider or an exchange franchise and avoid the banks.

If you want the absolute best currency exchange rates in Cape Breton, then we would advise you to avoid waiting until you go to the airport. While it may feel convenient and ideal, the airports charge incredibly high rent fees, much higher than the average retail store in a plaza or mall, and as a result have to mark up their rates by quite a bit. The nearest major airport to Cape Breton is Halifax International Airport. Knowing they can’t provide the best USD exchange rates in Cape Breton or the best foreign money exchange rates in Cape Breton, they rely on last-minute exchangers or customers who forgot entirely to make up their consumer base.
While strolling around in public, you find smaller exchange kiosks in areas like shopping malls and plazas, high-volume tourist locales and hotels as well. Their rent won’t be as much as a full-sized retail store, but they’re still a physical location which comes with the costs and rent associated with being a physical location. These locations can be a convenient provider of currency exchange in Cape Breton but may not provide the best USD exchange rates in Cape Breton or the best foreign money exchange rates in Cape Breton. If you’re looking at independent providers, but if you’ve never heard of them before it’s always wise to do research on them. A lot of them may try to offer you the best currency exchange rates in Cape Breton, but if you can’t trust them it isn’t worth it. One of the first signs is to make sure they require identification from you. That’s an easy government regulation to spot and if they’re breaking it, there’s no telling what other ones they may be breaking too.
Most currency exchange in Cape Breton runs through the banks and while they’re the most commonly used source, it doesn’t mean they’re the most ideal. Banks don’t offer you the base exchange rates you see on the news or online, or even the best currency exchange rates in Cape Breton. Instead, they markup their rates significantly, often by as much as 3%, which costs you a lot of extra money. They know they don’t have to compete for customers or to make their main source of income (due to other revenue streams) and use that to their advantage. If you want the best USD exchange rates in Cape Breton or the best foreign money exchange rates in Cape Breton, you best option would be elsewhere.
