Most people think that bank exchange rates are a rip off. Well, in some cases you can get a better rate from the bank. Especially if you are looking to buy rare currencies. Banks hold larger stocks of more currencies, meaning that any currency other than USD, EUR, JPY and NZD may benefit from a better exchange rate through the bank.
