Cash4Coins Currency Exchange Advice – How To Get The Best Currency Deals

Posted on: November 22nd, 2013 by Ian Stormnet

At Cash4Coins we offer a currency exchange service that is second to none.  We also like to give you the lowdown on how to exchange currency and get the best deals when you go on holiday or take a business trip abroad.  With a holiday on the horizon, we’re often so excited that we forget to look out for the best deals when it comes to arranging currency exchange.

Forget The Bank And Airport Bureau De Change For Your Currency Exchange

If you usually use the bureau de change services at your local bank or your departure airport, you might be surprised to learn that these services will not give you the best deal.  Why?  Well, exchange rates fluctuate all day every day, but the banks and airports don’t give you access to the live exchange rate.  Instead, they give you access to the rate that was released in the morning and that rate stays the same for the entire day.  Online foreign exchange brokers on the other hand, give you access to exchange rates that are as close as possible to the Interbank live rate.  This is the rate that the banks pay for the currency they buy and it is much more competitive.

Why 0% Commission Is A Myth

Those 0% commission deals you see advertising on the high street are actually not as good a deal as you might first thing.  The companies offering 0% commission for currency exchange need to make a profit somewhere and they do this by offering you an exchange rate that is lower than the rate they purchased the currency for originally.  That is why it is best to consider the exchange rate you are actually getting rather than being blinded by these 0% fee deals.

Compare The Market For All Currency Exchange Transactions

In the same way that you can compare the market for physical goods, you can now do the same for services and currency exchange services are no exception.  Whether you are exchanging Sterling for US Dollars or US Dollars for Euros, this is a great way to find the best deals online.  At Cash4Coins we understand the way the currency exchange market works.  After all, we deal with foreign currency every day.  As a result, we know how doing a little research to find the best rate could mean you are quids or Euros in if you find a good deal.

And Remember Cash4Coins When You Want To Exchange Your Leftover Currency

If you return from your trip with lots of leftover currency, don’t forget that Cash4Coins can help.  We can transfer any foreign currency into Sterling or another currency of your choice and you don’t even need to sort or count it.  Our service is quick and easy and we have many satisfied customers that have used our services to arrange a foreign currency exchange. That leftover currency would only sit around gathering dust once your holiday becomes a distant memory.  Why not turn them into something worthwhile by using our foreign currency exchange service.  We would be delighted to exhange your leftover currency for you.

Fundraising For Remembrance Day – Help Our Heroes With A Foreign Coin Donation

Fundraising with a foreign coin donation for remembrance day can be a great way to help our heroes and their families.  Every year, the nation expresses its support and gratitude for all the work the Royal British Legion carries out through its famous Poppy Appeal.  Wearing your poppy with pride is a great way of showing support whilst giving a little towards this fantastic cause.  But did you know there is another way to show your support and appreciation to our service men and women?

By making a foreign coin donation to the British Legion, you could be helping Armed Forces families, veterans or those currency in active service. And the good news is that we can handle everything for you. Whether you have lots of Euros tucked away, you have old British currency that is no longer legal tender or you have lots of low denomination bank notes, we can help you to make a donation to the Royal British Legion.  At Cash4Coins we help a range of different charities every year and we would be delighted to help you to make a difference to thousands of men and women around the world through the Royal British Legion.

 The Poppy Appeal this year is focused especially on Armed Forces families whether they are the families of active service personnel or retired personnel.  By donating your foreign coins and wearing your poppy with pride, you could be helping to support mothers, children, fathers and also those who have lost members of their family in active service. 

It’s so easy to donate to this worthwhile cause.  You don’t even need to count or sort your coins as we do the hard work for you.  Simply fill in our currency donation form and enter the Royal British Legion as your preferred charity.  Then just include this form in with your coins and we’ll make sure they receive your generous donation.  Why not club together with friends and family to make your foreign coin donation go even further?  It’s amazing how many foreign coins can be hiding around the home and how much they can be worth.
