Delays Sourcing Foreign Currency Can Be Costly Say Sainsburys

Published: 6/5/2010

Sainsburys Bank is advising those travelling abroad to get their currency arrangements sorted out in good time to avoid losing money on commission charges and lower exchange rates.

Travellers who sort their currency out at the airport, as well as those who arrange their currency abroad, will find themselves out of pocket compared with doing it all in the UK prior to trave believes Sainsburys Bank. Waiting to the last minute leaves travellers with no options but to take the poorer exchange rates on offer and ultimately receiving less in their pocket.

A Sainsburys Bank spokesman hoped that travellers would bear this advice in mind. He felt it would be a shame if, after trying to get the best deals all year round on their purchases, they let themselves down on something so important like foreign currency.
