We understand that it can be confusing to know the best way to exchange your money, so we thought we'd give you a little help making up your mind.

We have researched the different ways you can purchase your travel money and brought you the best solutions to make sure you time and hassle getting the best deal for your needs!

Currency Exchange at Manchester Airport

Did you know that purchasing currency at the airport can often be the most expensive way to get your foreign exchange? But that's only if you're not on the ball! Be sure to order it online to take advantage of the better exchange rates and arrange to collect it from one of the bureau de change outlets at the airport before you fly.

Prepaid Currency Cards

One of the newest additions to the travel money market are pre loaded, or prepaid, currency cards. The cards are essentially like a debit card which you top up with currency of your choice and spend on like a normal card. The Travelex Money Card allows you to store as many of the 10 available currencies available as you like and also offers 24/7 assistance should you need it.

Credit and Debit Cards

As with most credit cards, there a several options available to you and each one will have different perks. Pick your travel card as you would your regular credit card, keeping in mind credit limits, interest rates and applicable charges.

If you opt for a credit type card, make sure that the terms and conditions remain the same regardless of where you use it and how long you have had it - the terms on a card taken out 3 years ago may be different in 2016!

Home Delivery

Avoid all hassle of queuing and last minute panic by purchasing your currency online and having it delivered to your home. Most Foreign Exchange providers offer free next delivery too, but it's probably still wise to order a week or so in advance!
