Why change currency with us rather than your bank

    Global Exchange Global Exchange   Your Bank
Currencies available   35. We are specialists   Only the most common ones. Banks do not offer this specialist service.
Ready currency   Ever ready, immediately, in our branches at the airport.   Banks order currency and have to await delivery. 
Expenses   Only the exchange rate, without any additional charges, and if you order it online you get the best price.   The bank has its own margin and adds a commission.
Currency divided in different denominations   Of course! We care about you and your needs while you travel abroad.   No. Prepare for refusals and complaints in foreign languages when paying with «big» banknotes.
Delivery options   Collect at the airport/branch of your preference. It is all about comfort!   You must visit your bank at least twice, and wait meanwhile for your money to arrive.
What do I do with my leftover currency when I come home?   We buy it back from you at the airport, just as when you ordered online.   You must return to your bank. They may buy your currency back at a worse rate and then charge you a commission.
Anything else?   Yes: our Iberia Plus Customers who reserve online earn Avios for their purchases, as when they buy at the airport.   Avi-what? No sir! This is a bank, not an airline company!
