Bank

Using a bank can be a cheaper way to exchange money if you are buying less common currencies. Typically, money changers don’t stock up on any currency besides USD, EUR, JPY and NZD. So if you are looking for any other currency aside from those, you’re better off finding a better exchange rate at a bank.
