A deep dive on yuan renminbi

The name 'renimbi' literally means 'peoples currency'. It's the legal currency of mainland China.



It's easily exchanged in Hong Kong and Macau but it's not the official currency there.

I was not aware that you could order foreign currency online as easy as this process was. When I first started to shop around for the best rate, travelex offered a competitive rate and the overall process was simple. I was confident of the security aspect and I was impressed with the collaboration with the post office for easy collection.

One less worry when you are so busy preparing your trip.

Great service. Fast. One less worry when you are so busy preparing your trip. Then when you arrive at your destination you dont have to go to the bank to change your money. It can be time consuming and dangerous in some places. Travelex online rates are a very good deal. Will chose Travelex again for my next trip.
