Where to Find Money Changers in Johor Bahru?

Money Changers in Johor Bahru

June 15, 2016

Considering Johor is such a prolific tourist center, guests of M Suites Hotels and other visitors to the area needn't worry about finding a place to convert their foreign dollars into local currency. There are several dozen money changers in Johor Bahru, with several located right within the city center to accommodate tourists who don't yet know the city very well.

Read through the tips provided below before choosing one of the money changers suggested further down the page.

Understanding Fees, Commissions and Exchange Rates

Fees and commissions are essentially the same thing. Some money changers will include a fee for exchanging your money while giving you a favorable exchange rate.

Other vendors will offer a no-fee service, but bear in mind that they will always recoup their money by offering a lower (sometimes much lower) exchange rate than their competitors.

Essentially, if you're looking for the best deal, you should prepare to compare those who charge fees and those who do not, and then do some quick math using your smartphone's calculator app before settling on one money changer over the other.

Ideally, the best choice will be a money changer who offers low fees and the highest exchange rate.

Smart Tips:

  • Never assume that just because two money changers are located side by side to one another that they'll offer similar deals – it's up to you, the traveler, to compare prices and find the best deal.
  • Sites like TripAdvisor.com and Yelp.com are also great resources to learn from other travelers who've already compared different deals and dealt with specific money changers already.
