Airport mark-up more than 25%


This was the headline in the Express the today.  It talks about something we’ve said time and time again that you should:

  • Always compare rates before you buy
  • Always buy in advance and never leave it until you get to the airport
  • Always plan ahead and if you know you will need currency buy sooner rather than later
The Express investigation found that the rates varied significantly between airports; the mark-up was sometimes greater than 25% and that finally the most shocking part that MoneyCorp at Southampton airport was offering £1/US$1 – compared with the best online rates at the time of $1.24.
