If you are travelling and looking to exchange physical cash in Nanaimo there are a number of different places that you can go. Many retail vendors around the city specialize in these transactions, so they might be your best bet. However, retail vendors are usually located in busy city centers such as airports, train stations or shopping malls. This means their overheads are incredibly high, resulting in inflated rates. Your other option is to go to your local bank. You might be able to find more favorable rates here when looking to exchange physical cash; however banks too have high overheads so you might run into a similar problem. The key is to shop around in order to find the best rate. Physical cash exchange is always more expensive than electronic cash exchange, so try to buy in large amounts to take advantage of better exchange rates.
If you don’t need physical cash, and are looking to transact an amount higher than $5,000 than Knightsbridge Foreign Exchange is the place for you.
