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.
Explore the exchange rate history of Brazilian reais against the dollar, or head to our Travelex hub for top tips and insider guides to the nation.

My order was ready a day early

My order was ready a day early, and it was so appreciated that they were prompt about letting me know. Allowed me to cross an important item off my list and breathe a little easier.

Very Versatile Card

Was easily able to add money to my card on-the-fly - right on my phone. Was also easily able to go to an ATM (in Japan) to withdraw the money that I just added minutes earlier. Would highly recommend this card when traveling.
