4 reasons why exchanging currency online is better

By Editorial team

While on this blog we’ve gone over strategies for when to exchange currency in light of a trip and where to exchange it, and even established our fully online platform pre COVID-19 pandemic and told you everything you need to know about exchanging foreign currency, we want to go over why exchanging money online is better, easier and even necessary in a post COVID-19 world.

Empty airports, exchange kiosks closing down (see Travelex bankruptcy), and an entire population needing to adjust to less contact, only have one meaning for the foreign currency market: going online. While you may have some apprehensions, here at Foreign Currency, we want to make sure you know why exchanging currency online is the way to go.

1. Foreign Currency Exchange Opportunities

Right now, the Foreign Currency market and our platform present several opportunities to take advantage of. We are fully operational and busier than ever, which means that we are available not only to take in your leftover currencies and give you cash for them, but also, sell you over 130 currencies at great rates. Whether you are looking to buy currencies for current or future trips, have transactions in foreign currencies held up, or want to take advantage of currency fluctuations, you can still carry out all your currency needs within our platform. Traveling to Mexico? Interested in unloading Iraqui dinar or Vietnam dong? We’ve got you covered!

2. Financial Planning

Our platform is fully transparent and our rates for both selling us and buying foreign currencies are available (just click on the links on the words!). This means that you know what to expect. Our process is simple and is a great tool whether you’re an occasional traveler, a frequent traveler or just an active participant in the foreign currency market.

Furthermore, our platform enables you not only to buy foreign currencies that you may need, but also, sell any you have leftover back to us in exchange for cash. We aim to please, and to fulfill all your currency needs.

3. Security

In light of ransomware attacks on competitors (see Travelex Attack) and the ongoing threat that online security poses, we can’t stress this enough: our platform is safe, reliable and secure. Our process ensures your data protection and a customer service team that is available for your transactions. We aim to provide the best service and that includes having people to answer your questions and guide you through the process.

4. Avoiding contact and new health concerns amid the pandemic

The world has certainly changed during 2020. What was once routine has become a risk, which is why going online is not only the best option because of the aforementioned reasons, but also because it allows us to carry on with business as usual, while minimizing the risks associated with contact in exchange kiosks, and other forms of personal interaction. Nothing is as safe as an online exchange transaction, regardless of safety protocols in-person kiosks and banks may have in place.

Are you ready to start exchanging? Still have doubts or questions left? Feel free to get in touch, we are here to help. We remain operational and with a stocked inventory to fulfill your currency needs. Contact us!
