Money exchange

Post Posted: Tue Jan 03, 2017 1:36 am

I will be visiting Budapest soon and will be arriving from the Czech Republic. If we have Czech koruna left after our visit to Prague, should we change them into forint there or in Budapest? If in Budapest, where is the best place to change money in please, bank, currency exchange or hotel?

Hi,

I have found that changing sterling is better to do it in Hungary as we got a better rate of exchange. Banks are not so good but the big InterSpa have currency exchange in them. I can't remember the name of the company off the top of my head but they are a well know high street company,

Good luck,
mousemat

A quick bag around the head reminded me that it is Western Union.

Make sure you try the thermal spas when you are there.

Cheers,
mousemat
