How to Conduct Currency Exchange In Vancouver
Foreign Exchange in Vancouver is a competitive market, so it’s important to do accurate research to ensure you’re choosing the best service for your financial needs.
There are a variety of ways to conduct foreign exchange:
Vancouver International Airport currency exchange services
Hotel money transfer services or kiosks
Each of the options listed is valid and safe, however, they may not be the greatest options if you want to avoid extra fees and keep your hard-earned money in your pocket. Your money will be exchanged successfully, but you may get hit with high fees.
In contrast, our foreign exchange brokers at KnightsbridgeFX are tasked with locating the lowest exchange rates available in Canada, especially for larger transactions ($5,000 and over).
Most banks will charge 2-3% for currency conversion but we charge less than 1% of your funds. At a 0.5% fee rate, you can send more without spending more.
These lower rates are ideal for international business and property owners, families, students and more.
