5 ways to spend leftover foreign coins

Help for impoverished students…!

OK, you’re a poor student and you’ve pretty much spent all your foreign coins on your holiday in the sun. However, you get to the airport and shock horror…. You find some pesky foreign coins left in the deepest darkest recesses of your pockets. If you take them back home you can’t exchange them at any bank so you’d be stuck with them. So what can you do..?

Here are a few great ways to leverage the last bit of value from them.

1. Make a call

It’s not very exciting but it may be a great way to get rid of some of the foreign coins. Maybe you want to call ahead and confirm your lift or (even better) call the new friends you’ve just made on your hols.

2. Get yourself a book

If nothing else most airports have a decent place to buy a book so you could spend those last few coins on one. The good news is that when you’ve finished the book you can always sell it after or exchange it towards another book.

3. Treat yourself to a snack

Now you’ve got a bit of spare wedge you may want to splash out on some street food or a tasty snack on the way to the airport. If you’re suffering from (ah-hem) dehydration then you may want to save it to buy some water on the plane.

4. Taxi

OK, a taxi is usually a bit extravagant but if you’ve got some leftover foreign coins then why not use them to travel in style and get a cab to the airport. Even better of there are a bunch of you – you can all club together.

5. Exchange your foreign coins in the UK
