Citibank is one of America's largest financial service providers and offers services to over 200 million customers worldwide. Hence, the bank is an ideal choice for currency exchange services. However, currency exchange services offered by the bank are available only to account holders. Customers can buy or sell foreign currency at any bank branch. Since the bank deals in over 50 different currencies, Citibank's currency exchange services are highly reliable.

Visit the Nearest Branch

The bank usually offers reasonable service fee rates and also has high customer satisfaction ratings. So if you have leftover foreign currency from your trip, or want foreign currency for an upcoming trip, then it's recommended you visit the nearest branch to exchange it. You may also want to consider the bank's hours and other related details.

Avoid airport kiosks and unauthorized dealers by exchanging currency before your trip. It's best to visit the bank for Citibank currency exchange services if you plan to carry ready-to-use cash with you.

  • Visit the nearest Citibank branch and approach the "Currency Exchange" team.
  • Pay the relevant service fee (service fee of $5 is applicable for transactions under $1000).
  • Provide native currency notes or foreign currency notes based on what you want to exchange.
  • Collect the relevant currency from the bank officials.

Customers also have the option to choose "currency delivery" services. The bank will deliver the foreign/native currency to your home, office or a designated location.
