Currency Exchange in Surrey (604-229-1065 / 1-877-355-5239)
Being the second largest city of British Columbia in terms of population, Surrey has a wide range of currency exchange options for you, including banks, exchange kiosks, and exchange brokers. The money exchange industry is vast here and you, very often, will not have to put in significant efforts for getting your currency exchanged with the currency of the region where you are traveling. Although this sounds easy, currency exchange rates in Surrey are expensive and the chances of being scammed are high, especially if you are a novice and you don’t have much idea about how the currency exchange business works.
Where to exchange currency in Surrey
As mentioned above, currency exchange services are available at banks, at the Vancouver airport, at recreation centers, tourist spots, and at all major hotels. However, all of them charge a high markup fee. If you are looking for the best currency exchange rates in Surrey, you should, however, prefer independent brokers like us. At Knightsbridge Foreign Exchange we strive hard to provide you the best value for your dollars. Unlike banks that are into too many things, we exclusively deal with currency exchange and, therefore, we are always willing to get the best possible rate for currency exchange in Surrey. However, before you proceed, let us look at the advantages and disadvantages of all the available currency exchange options in Surrey.
Vancouver airport currency exchange services
Vancouver international airport has more than 11 branches of International Currency Exchange (ICE). While it may seem convenient to get your currency exchanged there, please note that the exchange rates may not be the best. The fees are normally high at such prime locations. If you haven’t got any local currency to pay the taxi bills etc. you may consider the kiosks here but if you have thousands of dollars to exchange, you may feel ripped-off. Go prepared and get some local currency ready before you leave.
Surrey hotel currency exchange services
With more than 600 parks and greenbelts, golf courses, museums, art galleries, shopping plazas, and exotic dining options, Surrey is a wonderful place for family getaway. This city is quite tourist-friendly, but, when it comes to currency exchange Surrey, you must come well-prepared. Many popular hotels here offer currency exchange services at their front desk but the rate you will be offered as a client, who is in desperate need of local currency, will not be as favorable as the actual mid-market exchange rate. Very often, hotels hide high commission fees in their poor rates. Further, many of them do not adhere to the local currency exchange regulations, so don’t forget to get a receipt of the transaction if you use their services.
Banks in Surrey currency exchange services
Banks and credit unions are definitely trustworthy and safe. No wonder why they are one of the most popular destinations for currency exchange in Surrey. However, most banks have high markup and, therefore, the rate they offer you isn’t always the best. If you have a few hundred dollars to exchange, you may not bother going elsewhere where chances of being scammed are high. However, if you have thousands of dollars to exchange or if you are a frequent traveler, you may not want to pay a high exchange rate, which could easily equate to thousands of dollars. Further, banks are into a lot of financial things and they may not be very keen on finding the best exchange rate for you.
The last thing you want to do when you are in a beautiful and nature-rich place like Surrey is to go to a bank, stand in a queue, and wait for someone to assist you for getting your currency exchanged. In such cases, you must consider reliable and genuine brokers like Knightsbridge Foreign Exchange. We are exclusively in the currency exchange business and that’s why we will put in all our efforts to make sure you get the best currency exchange rates in Surrey.

Surrey has grown to be British Columbia’s second-largest city, trailing only Vancouver. With the population growing to in excess of 450,000, the city is characterized by low population density urban sprawl. Surrey is one of the largest commercial centres in the province. The education sector is growing quickly as Simon Fraser University and Kwantlen Polytechnic University continue to expand. Surrey also has one of Canada’s youngest populations, with a third of the population being under the age of majority. Additionally, agriculture continues to make a notable contribution to the economy of Surrey.
Culturally, Surrey features many attractions, including the Surrey Museum, and the historic Surrey Municipal Centre, both of which are found in Heritage Square. Also found in heritage Square is the “REMEMBERANCE” statue by sculptor André Gauthier, featuring a kneeling solider remembering a fallen comrade, carved out of bronze. Surrey has the largest Canada Day celebration in Western Canada, which is presented annually at Cloverdale’s Millennium Amphitheatre Park.
Surrey is settled in the province of British Columbia, Canada. It’s part of the Metro Vancouver area and the second-largest city after Vancouver.
The European immigrants arrived in this fast-growing city in the early 1800s. By then, the Semiahmoo and Kwantlen First Nations People had already been living there for six thousands of years. Surrey was incorporated in 1879 and in 1937 it started to truly expand, thanks to the Pattullo Bridge being erected. Surrey is a city since September 1993.
Surrey is strategically located at the intersection of the Pacific, Greater Vancouver and the United States. Lying between Fraser River and the U.S. border, the city is made up of hills and flatlands and comprised of seven communities, each with its own urban personality: Cloverdale, Whalley & Surrey City Centre, South Surrey, Fleetwood, Cloverdale, Guildford, and Newton.
Its central location translates into easy and convenient access to two international airports, two border crossings to the US, an efficient national and local road system, and a deep-water port that offers all the ideal opportunities for transporting goods and services worldwide. Surrey can be easily traveled and experienced through an extensive public transport system. Many buses stop in all major communities and centers, and the city is closely linked to Vancouver and other surrounding areas through the SkyTrain system, which allows fast travel between Surrey and its neighbors. This network is essential to meet the requirements of a vibrant city and for the growing business sector. The main industries are agriculture, high technology, education, clean energy, health, and advanced manufacturing.
Affiliated to the Virtual Museum of Canada, Surrey Museum is one of the places where you can spend some quality time. Surrey Municipal Hall is a historic complex that includes the popular Coverdale Library. When visiting Surrey, it’s impossible not to walk through its beautifully groomed gardens (where you’ll find an oasis of tranquility amid the city hustle), natural parks, and urban forests. You can also find a full range of world-class sports venues, swimming pools, skating rinks, and recreation centers. Whatever your golfing skills are, the Surrey golf courses will certainly create a memorable experience.
In Surrey’s markets, you’ll find talented artisans who sell souvenirs and handmade crafts. No visit to Surrey is complete without shopping. The city has many luxury boutiques and outlet shops together with vibrant shopping centers. Additionally, you can visit the area’s vineyards, where you can taste wines made out of grapes sourced from fourteen varieties of local vines.
