Euros, Dollars and Rands  Reply with quote  

Hey people,

I'm leaving to Zimbabwe and South Africa soon where they pay with US Dollars and South African Rands, respectively. I'm now wondering when it is best to change my Euros for these foreign currencies. Should I buy my dollars and rands now or should I wait?
Thanks in advance.

Probably best to do it when you get to where you're going as a bank is going to nick you pretty good on both the exchange rate and a service fee if you do it before. If you're going out of or into a major international airport (where you clear customs) there's usually a currency exchange kiosk somewhere either in the terminal or nearby.

But if your question is about exchange rates then who knows?
