After an unforgettable trip somewhere far away, it is common to feel the “post-vacation blues” and forget to exchange the stack of Euro cash sitting in your wallet. If you’re planning on converting your money to the local currency and you want to earn a little more than what you can get from other money changers, let’s take a look at the list of 8 the best money changers in Singapore (in no particular order).
#1 Arcade Money Changers (AMC)
Arcade Money Changers is a reliable money changer in Singapore that offers a wide range of currency choices with the best rates. Located in The Arcade near the Raffles Place MRT Station, the Arcade Money Changers is well-known among office workers. Due to that, the place is often packed during peak hours. So, I would suggest that you visit in the morning or after 2 pm
If you’re afraid that the currency that you need is sold out, you can head straight to their website page where you can do an online booking and receive a reply within 30 minutes during business hours.

#8 Thin Margin
Thin Margin is Singapore’s first 24/7 online money-changer. They run their business solely online to cater to those who would like to avoid the sticky process you usually have to go through at a typical money changer. What you simply need to do to use their service is by firstly making your order on their website, choose the date and time you would like them to deliver the cash, and pay through online banking. In the case of the rates they offer, they claimed it to be similar to the money changers in Raffles Place, but better and with the bonus of a delivery.

There isn’t really an ultimate say on which money changer is the best in Singapore since currencies are dynamic in nature and the rates offered sometimes can be pretty similar from a money changer to another. But whatever it is, make sure they fully authorised and licensed by Monetary Authority of Singapore.
