How to sell unused foreign currency

Whether you have been on holiday this year or in previous years the chances are that you have come back from holiday with some left over unused foreign currency. Sometimes when you are a frequent traveller you may decide to keep your unused foreign currency in order to use it next time you visit a destination where the currency is being used. For example, Euros or US Dollars which are both widely accepted in many countries around the world.

When selling unused foreign currency suppliers will offer you what is called a currency buy back rate which is different compared to when you first brought currency which is called a currency sell rate. Everyday exchange rates change and therefore these sell and buy back rates change as well and ensuring you get a good deal on selling unused foreign currency is just as important as shopping around for travel money exchange rates before you go away on holiday as you want to make sure you get the most out of the money you have in the exchange rate deal.
