Online money orders

We are launching our new online money order service with collection at airport.

Learn more about all the advantages of buying online in Costa Rica.

Global Exchange has branches at the main international airports of 22 countries.

In Costa Rica, we are located at Juan Santamaría International Airport, close to the capital, San José and Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia, Guacanaste.

Now, besides getting a better rate when ordering online, you can pay and collect your travel money at the airport on the day of your trip.

Advantages of ordering online:

  • Better rates than at the airport.
  • 35 currencies available.
  • Travel stress-free with your money already in your pocket.
  • Best exchange rate guaranteed: either the one for the day you place your order or the one for the day you collect it.
  • Pay upon collection the day you go to the airport.
  • We buy back your unspent currency at the airport.

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!
