Currency is a form of money (such as coins, paper money, and bank notes)
that is used as a medium of exchange for goods and services.
Leading dollar-denominated currencies include the U.S. dollar, Canadian
dollar, Australian dollar and New Zealand dollar. Other leading
world currencies include the European euro, British pound, Japanese yen,
Swiss franc, Indian rupee, and South African rand.
As market conditions change, each of the world's national and regional currencies may fluctuate in value with respect to other currencies. Foreign exchange (FOREX) traders and investors, as well as importers and exporters, can monitor these important fluctuations via the online currency conversion tools and resources listed below.
Travelers who visit foreign countries will often need to exchange their currency to that of their destination country. Some travelers like to obtain enough foreign currency for a few incidental expenses before leaving home, while others prefer to convert their money to a local currency at their destination, where they may receive a better conversion rate. Currency brokers such as Travelex enable travelers to conveniently order foreign currency online. In addition, currency exchange kiosks at major airports and near border crossings, as well as many bank ATM machines and travel agencies, offer currency conversion services.
Once you arrive at your destination, try to avoid exchanging money at airports and hotels, as they will probably charge you high transaction fees. It's a good idea to carry a calculator with you, so you can determine what you are being charged.
Your best bet is to exchange money by using your credit card, or by going in to one of the local banks. Regardless of where you decide to exchange your money, be sure to check the newspaper for current rates.
More info about management and trading of currencies is available on the world currencies page. CurrencyConversion.us also features a directory of selected brokers who provide currency exchange and trading services for investors, businesses, and travelers.
