In moving to another country, do you think its better to have your currency exchanged or have it exchange in the country of destination instead? what do u think?

hi shadow, i say for convenience purposes maybe its better to have some money exchange beforehand, for example if we ride a taxi in the place of destination upon arrival, we need to pay the driver in their currency. have a nice day to you too my friend.

It depends on a number of things, most importantly: Where is it cheaper to exchange the money. I'd check with the banks what kind of fees apply. I also would find out how difficult it is to exchange your money in a certain country. In some countries exchange bureaus might not be that easily available. Lastly I would always recommend to exchange at least some money in advance - you don't want to arrive at the airport without local money and then finding that the exchange bureau is closed for any reason and you can't pay for your taxi!
