Exchanging Foreign Currency
To exchange your currency, you can go to your bank, or visit a foreign currency exchange office (geldwisselkantoor) such as GWK Travelex, which is commonly located at a lot of train stations and airports.
If you wish to exchange foreign currency at your bank, you will need to check the procedures and most banks will send your currency to the GWK Travelex. You will receive the money in your Dutch bank account after a few days. An extra charge may apply, so it might be practical and less expensive if you go to the GWK yourself.
GWK Travelex also can issue a Cash Passport available in Euros, British Pounds and US dollars. It is a prepaid MasterCard that can be a very useful and safe tool for internet payments as well as for overseas travelling (most Dutch banks use Maestro or VPay).
Other GWK Travelex services:
- ∙ Most popular currencies are available on demand
- ∙ Traveler’s checks are available on demand
- ∙ Foreign Currency Exchange Return service
