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 as banks hold larger stocks of different currencies. Any currency other than USD, EUR, JPY and NZD may have a better exchange rate at a bank.
