When arranging for a group to travel overseas, make sure participants remember to buy foreign currency while still in their home country. It is more expensive to buy money at airports when travelling than it is to purchase in countries along the way.
This is because there is an added charge for fees and commission on foreign cash purchases, and also the rates fluctuate. If this is a school tour, it is a great time to teach classes to watch these fluctuations so that they begin to understand and become aware of the exchange rate, both when travelling and when working online for other clients in overseas countries.
If your group travel is being arranged for you, obtain a quote for the money exchanges in all of the countries on your itinerary, so that the class can learn about the attributes of the International money scene. They will gain an understanding of the nature of the system by comparing the fluctuations that affect the money rate of exchange over night.
