MyTravelMoney Mystery Shop data is collected in real time on September 2nd from 10:30am-11:00am

Key Findings

  • Exchange rates are the key indicator to obtaining the fairest deals on travel money
  • Independent research shows Airport Bureaus apply markups of over 10% away from the real interbank exchange rate
  • Buying your holiday money online with home delivery is as time efficient and easy as booking a hotel online.

Co-Founder at MyTravelMoney Daniel Abrahams comments:

”If you want to get the most bang for your holiday money buck, don’t convert your hard earned holiday money last minute at the airport. £50 out of every £500 exchanged will be trousered by airport bureaus. It pays to shop around, with online travel money rates little over 1% away from the ‘real exchange rate.’ Remember: 0% commission is simply a marketing gimmick, in no way shape or form does it equate to free travel money.”
