Why is it useful having a Currency Converter in your pocket?
Xe currency converter might be useful for the kind of travelers crossing many borders in a short amount of time. I was in this situation in Southeast Asia where I travelled through Thailand, Laos and Cambodia in two and a half months.
However moving fast from a country to another is not the only situation that requires a currency converter. Some countries use several currencies at the same time such as Laos. Other there, you can pay in Laotian kip, Thai Bath or US dollar.
The reason is simple: their money is only worth something inside their country and this one is impossible to exchange somewhere else. Therefore Laos people accept to get paid with a currency stronger and more stable they can re-use too.
If you’re in Thailand and ask at the foreign exchange counter to change your Thai Bath in Laotian kip, he will decline your request…or you are about to get scamed! However, it is not too late to get some US dollar notes really handy.
A currency converter is also essential once you’re in poor country. In this kind of countries, currency rates change day to day and knowing the daily rates will save you from getting scammed and you will be able to negociate a better rate.
