What about my coins?

There are a couple of cool things you can do with leftover loose change from your holiday. And no, ‘saving’ them at the bottom of your underwear drawer isn’t one of them.

If you know you’ll be heading back to the same country in the near future, keep your coins safe in your travel wallet. This way they won’t clutter your kitchen counter, but you won’t forget them when you fly again either.  

If you have approximately one coin of each denomination, why not store and display them in a creative way? This could make for a great souvenir of your holiday, or maybe even the beginning of a lifelong love affair with coin collecting. You never know, right?

A moment of silence for all of the foreign currency mindlessly tossed aside at the end of a trip. If you want more info on what to do with leftover currency, have a read of our blog below!
