Frequent travelers take note; I’ve got a website that you’re going to want to bookmark for future use. It’s called, and it gives us the ability to take all of that extra cash that we bring home with us from our adventures, and convert it back into money we can use. The site accepts a wide range of currencies, and offers very good exchange rates to ensure that you’re getting the most value for the foreign money that you probably just have sitting around in a drawer somewhere anyway.

As someone who travels to foreign destinations on a regular basis, I always seem to come home with a few bank notes or coins in my pocket. Most of that cash ends up going into a box, along with other money that I’ve collected on my journeys. I currently have everything from Egyptian pounds to Nepali rupees, to Mongolia tögrögs rolling around in there, plus a few others too. But with, I can get that money converted back into something I can use.

Here’s how it works. Simply go to the website, select the currencies you want to exchange, and add them to your online wallet. After you’ve done this for all of the various types of money you want to swap out, you click on the wallet to see your current balance. Then, push the “Proceed to Exchange” button and fill out the information in the form to create your account. Doing this will lock in your exchange rate for 14 days, which allows you the time necessary to send your foreign currency in to be verified. After that, the website will either send you a check, or direct deposit your money into a bank or PayPal account.

The process works for wide array of currency types, including bank notes and coins that are even out of circulation. It is a quick, easy, and efficient way to get some real cash for the foreign money that you have left over, and your local bank won’t accept. You can find out more by visiting the website and starting the process yourself.
