Stansted Airport is the fourth busiest airport in the UK for Total Passenger Numbers and very close behind Manchester Airport as the third busiest airport in the UK. In fact, the growth rate of Stansted Airport was almost double of Manchester Airport last year.
What with Stansted Airport becoming more popular for passengers this means that the demand for other services at the airport will increase including the requirement for last minute Currency Exchange services. At Stansted Airport the exclusive Foreign Exchange Company is Moneycorp.
Earlier this year Compare Holiday Money launched its own exclusive Click and Collect Currency Exchange Rate Comparison service which includes all the major airports in the UK and high street Travel Money suppliers to help consumers get the best deal on Currency Exchange Rates at the last minute before leaving for their holiday.
So, if you are flying from Stansted Airport and you are looking to buy Travel Money then our advice will always be to check Currency Exchange Rates Online before you consider buying at the airport. As we have demonstrated in previous blog posts with regards to Gatwick Airport, Heathrow Airport and Manchester Airport that you can always save more money and therefore get more travel spending money in your pocket if you can find better exchange rates online.

We have found that most consumers can save up to 10% or in some cases on some currencies even more when compared with Online Foreign Exchange Companies versus Last Minute Currency Purchases From The Airport.
