If you are traveling to a foreign country, you must have a current passport, airline flights, the right clothing and proper immunizations.  But – often, foreign currency is something that gets left off the check list.

Why do you need foreign currency?

When traveling abroad, it’s always a smart idea to have cash to use when you arrive.  Sometimes it is for a cab ride from the airport, a cup of coffee or a snack, or a tip for an accommodating porter or hotel bellman.

Mann Travels recommends having some local currency available so you avoid the risk of the exorbitant exchange rates at the airport kiosks or hotel lobby desks.  Our currency experts can take care of exchanging your dollars before you travel. Whether it is Euros, Pesos, or Pound, Mann Travels can make your currency exchange easy and efficient helping you to avoid potential language barriers when arriving in a new place.
