Your Guatemalan quetzal questions answered

What is the best Guatemalan quetzal exchange rate?

The best Guatemalan quetzal exchange rate right now is 8.7933 which is being offered by Post Office.

Where can I get the best Guatemalan quetzal exchange rate?

The best Guatemalan quetzal rates are offered online by companies that specialise in travel money and foreign exchange. Online travel money specialists have lower overheads than most high street shops and traditional bureau de change which means they have greater flexibility in their pricing and can usually offer the best rates on the market.

If you absolutely must buy your Guatemalan quetzales in person it's still worth seeing if you can order online first on the supplier's website because you'll often get a better rate buy pre-ordering in advance before you collect your order.

On the high street, supermarkets tend to offer better Guatemalan quetzal rates than travel agents and the worst rates are offered by banks and airports. If you've left it too late for home delivery (ideally three working days before you travel) or if you would prefer to buy your currency in person, use our Guatemalan quetzal store finder to find the best Guatemalan quetzal rates near you.

Which supermarket has the best Guatemalan quetzal exchange rate?

We couldn't find any supermarkets in the UK who are selling Guatemalan quetzales right now. Please check back later.

When is the best time to buy Guatemalan quetzales?

The best time to buy Guatemalan quetzales is when the pound is performing strongly relative to the Guatemalan quetzal. That's the technically-correct answer, but it's not very helpful. What you probably want to know is: how can you time the market just right to maximise the amount of Guatemalan quetzales you get before you travel?

You can get a good idea of how competitive today's Guatemalan quetzal rate is relative to the past using our historical pound to Guatemalan quetzal charts, but beyond that it's impossible to say exactly when is the best time to buy.

If you have the luxury of time you can spread your Guatemalan quetzal purchases out over multiple weeks or months, but the short answer is nobody knows when the best Guatemalan quetzal rate is going to crop up; this isn't something you can control so you shouldn't worry about it - just buy your Guatemalan quetzales whenever is convenient for you and get back to thinking about your holiday!

Is it better to buy Guatemalan quetzales in Guatemala?

There is no evidence to suggest that you are better off buying your Guatemalan quetzales in Guatemala. Exchange rates are usually very similar to those on offer here in the UK, but if you wait until you're in Guatemala you run the risk of being stuck with a poor exchange rate and little or no local competition to buy elsewhere. Also, you may have to pay additional fees or commission when buying Guatemalan quetzales in Guatemala, whereas when you buy in the UK you know exactly how much you are getting up front with no hidden surprises when you come to buy.

Can I transfer Guatemalan quetzales to an overseas bank account?

If you want to send money to a bank account in Guatemala (or anywhere else in the world), you should use a money transfer service to send the funds for you. This is particularly useful for large or regular payments where the exchange rate is important, but you can use a money transfer service to send or receive funds between any overseas bank accounts (for example to pay for goods in Guatemala, or receive Guatemalan quetzales into your UK bank account).

Is it safe to buy Guatemalan quetzales online?

Thousands of customers order travel money on our website every week and the vast majority experience no issues whatsoever. However, as with any online order the process is not entirely risk-free and you should exercise caution when sending money to any company, particularly if you pay by bank transfer.

We undertake strict and comprehensive checks on the companies that we feature, and we monitor them all on a regular basis to ensure they continue to meet our high standards. Having said that, no company is too big to fail and we cannot guarantee the solvency of any of the suppliers who appear on our website. For this reason, we recommend that you conduct your own due diligence before placing an order with any company.

In the unlikely event that something does go wrong after you've placed an order, your payment method will determine how you are financially protected. For more information see: .

The quetzal is named after the Guatemalan national bird of the same name. The beautiful tail feathers of the quetzal were used as a form of currency in Aztec and Mayan civilisations.
