The Singaporean dollar (SGD) came into circulation in 1967, with each dollar consisting of 100 cents. You might hear the dollar being affectionately referred to as ‘sing’ by the locals.
TThe 10,000 SGD note is currently the most valuable banknote in the world, although in 2014 Singapore stopped printing it, with the aim of taking it out of circulation. It is still legal tender, and will be until the last notes are returned to the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
You are likely to find a 10% service charge added to your bill in restaurants. If not, there is no general rule for how much you should leave – it’s really up to you and whatever you feel comfortable giving. Remember though: if you’re in an airport restaurant tipping isn’t typically allowed, whereas tipping in bars or taxis is very uncommon.
What to spend your dollars on:
Singapore Sling cocktail at Raffles Hotel
Return trip to Sentosa by Cable Car
Day-pass to the S.E.A. Aquarium
One-day pass to Universal Studios
Must-sees in Singapore

The online method of ordering foreign currency is very simple to use. Paying by B Pay and collecting the foreign currency at a convenient location is also a great feature.James

Everything was great except the delivery date by the contractor. I asked for a particular date when I was going to be home but the delivery contractor's email indicated they were going to deliver on a different day. I complained to Travelex and fortunately they were able to get the package removed from the delivery van and then re-delivered on the day that I was home.Marilyn

Convenience of airport pick-up
Convenience of airport pick-up. Although the rates are not always the most competitive, I guess you pay for the convenience of being able to pick up your currency at the airport rather than having to find an outlet somewhere etc.KF
My only problem was being told as I picked up my money that they could not supply the roubles I needed in small denominations and I had to pay more to get the amount I wanted or accept less. I would appreciate being told this in advance.Kathleen Jennifer Bartlett
