The Best Places to Buy Euros in the USA

How to buy Euros online, at a bank or on the move

Online

Often this is the best way to buy Euros (EUR). You can reserve your order, pick it up in a store or even have it delivered to your door.

Currency Exchange International (CXI)

Buying foreign currency online for home delivery is easy with CXI. Select from more than 90 foreign currencies and receive it as soon as next day. Available in most areas.

Bank

You can buy euros with dollars at major banks like Wells Fargo and Bank of America. You will need to be a bank customer already and can order it online easily.

Banks do offer a wide range of currencies that you can buy but make sure you spend your foreign currency overseas because you might not be able to convert it back to dollars when you get back home.

In some cases, you can choose to receive your order in small, large or mixed denominations but it is subject to availability.

Foreign Currency Exchange

Money changers can be the cheapest way to buy euros. The problem is, it can be a hard to find them outside of the city and they regularly run out of less common currencies.

Money Tips

  • The exchange rates are better in major cities. So it can be worth going there if you're exchanging more than $2,000
  • Always ask for a better rate. We've found you can often get a better deal just by asking, particularly if you're buying more than $1000

Airport

Yes, you can buy currency at the airport. But that doesn't mean you should. While it's convenient, it's also very expensive.

Money Tips

  • Ordering it online and picking it up at the airport is much cheaper than buying it in person
  • If you've run out of time before your trip, it's might be better to buy your currency when you get overseas, or use your cards instead
