Let’s explore some of the effective strategies for managing currency risks while traveling and how we can enhance your travel experience.

Understand Exchange Rates and Market Trends: Before starting on your trip, it is important for you to familiarise yourself with the currency exchange rates of the country you are visiting.

Exchange rates can fluctuate significantly, affecting the value of your money. Stay updated with online currency converters or financial news platforms to make informed decisions about when to exchange your currency.

Plan Your Budget and Expenses: Create a travel budget that includes all your anticipated expenses such as accommodation, transportation, meals, and leisure activities. Consider the local cost of living, and the duration of your trip.

Having a well-planned budget will help you estimate how much foreign currency you will need and avoid unnecessary overspending.

Utilise Multi-Currency Cards: One of the most convenient and secure ways to manage currency risks is by using multi-currency cards. At Muthoot FinCorp ONE we provide multi-currency Forex cards with competitive exchange rates, enabling you to save on conversion fees.

Moreover, our Forex cards are accepted worldwide, giving you the flexibility to make payments or withdraw cash from ATMs without any hassle.

Carry A Mix of Cash And Cards: While multi-currency cards are convenient, it is always wise to carry a small amount of local currency in cash. Having cash on hand is useful for emergencies, situations where cards may not be accepted, or for small transactions like taxi fares, street food, or tips.

At Muthoot FinCorp ONEwe understand this and we provide you with an option for both - multicurrency card and cash.
