Classic 164 Currency Converter
This service from OANDA offers currency conversion for 164 currencies from around the world. The converter is updated daily at 08:00 PM EST (Eastern Standard Time) with data from the previous day. The OANDA "Cheat Sheet for Travelers" provides a handy table of converted amounts in your choice of currencies. The various rates are useful as the average traveler is not likely to get the "official" interbank market rates which generally reflect the exchange rates for transactions of US $1 million or more! Retail rates which are used by credit cards (typically 2%) or cash exchanges in banks (typically 4%) or other exchange services usually vary from a 1 to 10 percent margin on the top of the interbank rates. Retail rates vary from place to place, so to find out the best places to change your money, contact your local bank or travel agency.
