As an example, suppose you are from New york or in Los Angeles United States and you travel to Bern Switzerland. There, you need to get 1000 Swiss Francs (C) at a Bern bank to pay your hotel. In this case you would pay 1.006 * 1000 = 1006 US Dollars ($). But, in practice, you will pay more (or perhaps much more) to get the same amount of your foreign currency due to the margin for the money conversion services costs like: commissions, credit card surcharges, ATM fees and other expenses. If, for example, you are using a credit card, this margin will typically be around 2 to 3 percent. We recommend that you choose the best place to make your money exchange because there can be a large difference between forex rates you will get.
In the example above for a 1000 Swiss Francs amount, the result of the money conversion is 1026.12 USD for a 2% margin or 1036.18 USD for a 3% margin.
Some Internet based foreign currency exchange agencies add 10 percent or even more. So, if you make the same calculations above, there will be a difference of about 100.6 USD depending on which forex bank or agency you choose to exchange your money.
