SERVICES

CURRENCY EXCHANGE
My Currency Shoppe carries over 20 different currencies with competitive rates compared to the banks. We don't charge any service fees and most major currencies can be purchased and picked up on the same day. Large volume purchases and minor currencies may need to be pre-booked ahead of time. Contact us by phone or email for a quote or to set up an appointment.

Walk-in's are always welcome but currency availability not guaranteed.

  • ​IMPORTANT NOTICE
  • At the current time we only accept cash for payment.
  • Once you have completed a transaction, no form of refunds are permitted.
  • Our company policy is not to accept bank notes that are no longer in circulation or if they are in poor condition. Some countries withdraw banknotes from circulation (as it usually happens in the Euro countries when they changed currencies). Unfortunately we are not able to buy these bank notes from you but you may be able to exchange them at a financial institution on a future trip to the country that issued them. Please see our currency section for an up-to-date list of bank notes that are in circulation.

Should I Buy Foreign Currency Before I Leave Home
In our opinion you should always try to have some local currency with you when you arrive at a foreign destination. You will need some for immediate expenses such as bus or taxi fares, or tips, and you may find it difficult to change money at your destination or at the time you arrive. My Currency Shoppe offers rates which we believe are better than those available at many airports and currency exchanges in other countries (and we would be glad to hear of any comparisons you make).

​Can I Use My Credit Card Or Bank Debit Card To Obtain Local Currency In Other Countries
You can use credit cards or bank debit cards in most countries. You should always check with your bank or credit card company to see what fees may apply for international use.

​Should I Exchange Money At The Airport
It's convenient, but often expensive. We suggest you check and compare rates.​

Older Bank Notes And Currencies
Older notes in various foreign currencies are often withdrawn from circulation as newer notes are released. We do not recommend customers save their leftover bank notes for long periods of time as it is possible they may be withdrawn from circulation or have their legal tender status removed.

​At My Currency Shoppe we only deal with currencies in circulation and may not be able to accept bills that are non-circulating or no longer legal tender. Often the only place you can exchange an older bill that has been removed from circulation is at a bank in the country that issued it. This situation occurs frequently with the UK Pound (GBP) , among other currencies.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. Thanks, we look forward to hearing from you!
