A deep dive on Brazilian reais

The Brazilian real used today was introduced back in 1994. When introduced, it was pegged against the US dollar at an exchange rate of 1:1 and uses a dollar-like symbol, the only exception being that it has two vertical lines instead of one. You’ll find 100 centavos to each real.

More info on Brazilian reais

The most commonly used denominations are R$2, R$5, R$10, R$20, R$50, R$100.

What to consider when ordering your currency online

Thinking about the rate is just one consideration when it comes to getting your foreign currency, but don’t worry because we’re here to help make things really simple for you.

  1. Check the rates – Use our handy currency rate tracker to check how rates change over time 
  2. Think about how much you need – Your budget will help you to work out just how much you need to take with you, depending on how long you’re going for, how many of you are going and how big of a spender you are!
  3. How you want to get your money – If lining up to get your money isn’t your style, then you can order your currency to be delivered direct to your door. Alternatively, if you like to see a friendly face when you get your money, you can pick up at one of our stores across the US.

It was easy

It was easy. Choose the amount and choose when you want it delivered and done. And the exchange rate was reasonable. It was great be able to arrive in country with cash in hand and not have to search for an ATM. I was so glad I had done it because it was very hard to find an ATM that would take our cards.

Currency shipped directly to home at minimal shipping cost

I had not traveled internationally for a few years. When I started doing so again I had forgotten what a hassle and expense it can be to obtain foreign currency. Then I remembered Travelex. I got on line and looked them up. I was able to have currency for two different countries shipped directly to my home. It arrived very quickly with minimal shipping cost.

Money exchange

Lower cost than other money exchanges and safe way to exchange money. We'll hit the ground running with local currency in hand. Took a little more time than I expected because of verification with credit card company.

No more nearby location.

4 stars only because you no longer have a downtown Sacramento location where I can pick up my currency. Otherwise, great.
