What does one do with extra euros? I've gone to the banks and money changers and they want huge percentage!
What do my fellow travellers recommend I do with excess Euros? Is it possible to find travelers to do a direct exchange with? I'd rather do that than deal with the fat cats at the bank! I've put out info on Craigslist. Thanks for any suggestions!!
Save them for your next trip. Before I depart the euro zone I either spend the money at duty free or donate it...many airports have boxes for donations.
Save them for someone you know going to Europe and then exchange them with them at the actual exchange rate.
Agreed with the above. I either give them to people traveling to the area, save them for the next trip, or even save the unique ones for my daughter (I used to love looking at coins from different countries when I was younger).
Save them for the next trip. The only money we ever changed back was Croatian kuna but we changed it back to euros rather than british pounds Having said that it meant two exchanges firstly back to pounds , pay the exchange rate and then into euros , pay again.
I would not want to lose money on changing anything back. Euros and US dollars have such a widespread use, we always save them for the next trip. I take care to use the old currency first, though, just in case any coins or notes go out of date.
I think exchanging them would not be suitable to you. You should keep them for your next travel adventure.
We always save them for our next trip so we know we will be going back. We've also given some to friends who were heading out on a trip.
Our nephew was in Boy Scouts and got a badge that had something to do with foreign money. He got most of our change.
