travel to Europe and save money on foreign exchange

Travelling to Europe can be exciting but expensive. The dip in the value of the Euro can prove to be a bonus when the Euro to INR conversion rates play in favour to the Rupee. Due to Brexit and the slump in the European economy, the cost of travel has reduced significantly. Here are four tips to make you cash in on the Euro to INR exchange rate when you travel abroad:

Buy foreign currency on the day you leave

It is safer not to carry Euros in cash when you depart and smarter to use any of the ATMs to withdraw cash. This is due to the fluctuation in Euro to INR conversion where money changer firms will offer a lower exchange rate to earn on the difference between the buying and selling rate.

Minimise the number of cash exchanges

Without looking into the fine print, you may fail to realise that your money reduces substantially every time you visit the money changer. Every time you exchange Indian Rupees to Euros, you lose money as you are charged for buying and selling, and have to pay a charge for the money changers’ services. Ensure that you carry a minimum amount of Euros on you so that you do not have to keep visiting the money changer.

Understand the change in currency conversions

Use the 30/70 rule and carry only 30% of cash currency on your person and 70% on your Forex card. This helps in giving you a higher sum of cash currency and is a safer way to travel. Always compare exchange rates before buying or selling currency and this will ensure that your Forex dealer is RBI authorized and trustworthy.

Save Euros for your next trip or sell them
