It’s true that purchasing your currency at the airport can be one of the most expensive ways to do so, but not if you pre-order online, lock in those rates and collect in the airport! Currently, they don’t have any currency exchange points as ICE have filed for administration so if you require travel money, it is advised that you do it before arriving at the airport. They do hope to replace these soon!
Probably the safest way to carry your travel money is on a prepaid currency card like the Money Card from Travelex. Load up to 10 available currencies onto the card to spend how you like. The money is not linked to your bank account and you can withdraw cash at any time with no ATM fees. You can also be reassured that if anything does go wrong, 24/7 assistance is on hand.
