Foreign currency exchange in Tenerife

You have probably realized your personal dream of buying a property in Tenerife and this will probably represent one of the greatest investments of your life. The currency of the Canary Islands is the Euro. Once the terms of purchase have been agreed the price will be fixed in Euros, however, you will no doubt need to transfer a Sterling sum into Euros in order to pay for your property.

This is an important element of the purchase process; (one that is often overlooked), and can make a significant difference to the price in Sterling, that you will ultimately have to pay for your dream home. Exchange rates change constantly and it is therefore, important that you make your money go further.
