No, we do not charge any commission for any exchange transaction in Costa Rica. We only charge a trading margin (difference between the price we purchase the currency and what we sell it you for), which will be smaller the higher the amount is, or if you decide to exchange your currency online instead of doing it at our branches (airports, hotels and shopping centres).
Banks, however, will charge you the trading margin plus a commission, while in Global Exchange we only charge the trading margin. Compare our margins to those of your bank and add the commission to see how much more you are paying.

When you exchange your currency at our branches, you receive a discount voucher with a code.

The accuracy and seriousness that drive our transactions make this situation very unlikely. However, if this happens, we will proceed to replace the banknote in that very moment.
Besides, for the safety of our Customers, Global Exchange records the serial numbers of banknotes in such a way that counterfeited notes can be detected, or in case a Customer has a complaint, we can check whether it came from our branches or not.
