Here I will be exposing you to some nice money converter you can use in case you want to know the currency rate of any country.

But before I disclose these websites, here is a quick incident that happened to my friend. 

My friend Herbert was in Moscow, Russia. He needed to withdraw money from the nearby ATM. That was the night before his flight. He forgot to look up the exchange rate of the Russian ruble to the Nigerian naira and consequently had no idea how much to withdraw.

He was only going to spend 2 days in Moscow before leaving for his destination and had paid for everything except for his meal. So, he didn’t need much cash to spend. He, therefore, picked a number that he believed would the equivalent of N20, 000 from his account.

When Herbert arrives at his hostel room later that day, I decided to check the exchange rate online and discovered that he had withdrawn N60, 000.

So, if you don’t want to make the mistake of my dear friend, Herbert, I advise you to check the currency exchange rate before you make any travel. 

Here are the currency converter’s you should be using.
