Cardiff Airport Travel Money & Foreign Exchange
Money Saving Tips
DO purchase your currency in advance!
DON’T leave your exchanges to the last minute or you’re most likely to incur higher charges!
DO pre-order your currency for collection at your airport to minimise those exchange rates!
DON’T withdraw cash on your debit card whilst away – you are more likely to exchange at a much higher rate than changing up cash at home!
Left it to the last minute and want to exchange in the airport? This could mean you risk paying much more than if you prepay online and opt to collect from one of the 2 bureau de change outlets at the airport. Do your research and pre-purchase!
Prepaid Currency Cards
The latest addition to the travel money market are pre loaded currency cards. The cards act like a debit card which you pre-load with currency.
We highly recommend you order one of these cards before you travel as it can be one of the cheapest ways to buy your holiday money.
They are not offered by all FX providers, so check out the Travelex Money Card; click on the image on the right for more information and how to apply for one.
Credit and Debit Cards
With lots of options on the market, it’s best to do your research before you pick the best card for you. Treat it like applying for a regular credit card – check the interest rates, payment terms and limits.
Keep in mind that banks will change the terms and conditions of the cards they offer from time to time so it is important to check that your card still offers and covers the original perks shown before using it abroad.
