As an example, suppose you are from Colombo Sri Lanka and you travel to New Delhi India. There, you need to get 1000 Indian Rupees (₹) at a New Delhi bank to pay your hotel. In this case you would pay 2.552 * 1000 = 2552 Sri Lanka Rupees (Rs). 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 Indian Rupees amount, the result of the money conversion is 2603.04 LKR for a 2% margin or 2628.56 LKR for a 3% margin.
Some Internet based foreign currency exchange agencies add 10 percent or even more.
