We know there are several ways to change up your travel money nowadays (no need to take a stash hard saved cash to the travel agents anymore!) but do you know what they are and know what they mean? You’d be forgiven for answering “No” given the amount of variation on the market!
Fear not; below we have compiled the information you need on the most popular ways of obtaining your travel money when passing thorugh Aberdeen Airport.
Travel Money at the Airport
There are also 6 cash ATMs throughout the airport; four can be found close to the Travelex desk before security and the other two by the Travelex desk after security. A mixture of Sterling, Euros and US Dollars can be withdrawn.
Prepaid Currency Cards
If you don’t like carrying cash, a preloaded currency card may be just what you need. They act in a similar way to regular credit and debit cards, except you pre-purchase and load the amount of currency before you go. They are perfect for keeping a close eye on your travel money and you can usually benefit from locked in exchange rates to protect you from unfavourable fluctuations. You’ll need to apply for one with your chosen provider, so make sure you leave yourself enough time to do so. Oh and be mindful that these cards come with charges, all of which will differ depending on the provider!
Credit and Debit Cards
If you are happy to use your own plastic, this can usually be the easiest way to go about spending money abroad (especially if you run out of time to do any of the above!) Again, no card comes with out a catch, so be sure to check what rates / charges your card may be subject to, should you opt to use it abroad.
