Changi Recommends delivers foreign currency to your doorstep

You don’t have to go to physical money changers for competitive rates.

It’s really straightforward.

After finalising your delivery details, all you have to do is sit back and relax. Changi Recommends delivers anywhere in Singapore, except offshore islands, within 1 day.

Do note that you can change a minimum of $300 and maximum of $4999 per day.

There’s also a $3 service fee, but be honest — you’d probably spend more on public transport to any good money changer.

Pick up your WiFi routers at the airport just before you fly

Apart from trouble-free currency exchange, Changi Recommends also has overseas WiFi rental.

You can collect the kit at Changi Airport before flying off, then return it when you’re back.
