How often do you purchase something from outside of your country? Often times it is difficult to determine what an item will really cost because of different currencies that are used. This little converter does a terrific job…and it’s free!
The XE.com Universal Currency Converter is the world’s most popular currency tool. You can perform interactive foreign exchange rate calculations, using live, up-to-the-minute currency rates.
To start, simply type the value of currency to convert in the amount box. You may include commas and a decimal point. Next, select the source and destination currencies using the scrolling selection boxes. Currencies that are obsolete — or that are being phased out — will be indicated by an asterisk (*). When you are finished, push the “Perform Currency Conversion” button, and the results of your conversion will be displayed.
For ease of use, the top ten currencies sorted by popularity are listed first. Next come the top 85 currencies sorted by country name. Special units and precious metals are listed both alphabetically as well as in their own sections at the end of this list. If you need more currencies, you can get every world currency through the XE.com Full Universal Currency Converter.
If you need more help, information is available on the three-letter currency codes, as well as world currency symbols.
This is an invaluable tool to have (or at least to have stored in you favorites) to give that extra added comfort of knowing how much an item will really cost.
