Why We Suffer a Transaction Loss When Exchanging Currency

Countless number of currency exchange transactions take place every single day all over the world and most of the times we are the ones who suffer the exchange loss, the transaction cost is transferred smartly upon us by the dealers and we can suffer up to 10 to 15% loss on the entire transaction, exchanging money becomes necessary especially when travelling and if the currency you have does not work in the country where you are headed to then you would definitely have to visit a local money exchange dealer, but you can avoid that if you done some homework in advance.

First of all what you need to do is get all the information regarding the currency of the currency where you are headed to and check conversion rates with your local currency, then what you can do is buy some of that currency in advance and keep it with you, that is one common solution to this issue and it is widely used by people all over the world, second option is the most convenient one in my opinion and that is to keep a debit/credit card which works internationally, make sure that you have international transactions enabled and keep that with you, you wouldn’t have to go to any local money changers who are there to fraud you at first opportunity, even if they don’t do that they would make sure that you suffer the highest loss and they get the most out of this exchange transaction, euro is the currency which is used all over Europe and money in Italy is also Euro so if you are headed to Italy then you should either buy euro in advance or ensure that you have a debit/credit card which would work there.

Why Get Your Child Registered For The RESP

The RESP or Registered Education Savings Plan is a life saver for a lot of Canadian teens and adults. This plan has singlehandedly put thousands of Canadians in College by putting them in a financial situation where they would be able to pay for college. Under the new management of the Knowledge First Financial group, the RESP program will be able to broaden its work. Nowadays if you do not have higher education then you will probably not be able to get a good livable wage. Most people recognize that without a proper certification or degree they are going to be left without many work options and will find it difficult to make a living. Even getting in to trade jobs, you have to be certified and must have completed a few courses that certify that you are competent in what you do.

As education turns more and more in to a business rather than something that helps young people learn and be prepared for life later on, the prices for the education goes higher as well. For most of the Western world, education has become nearly unaffordable on an individual’s savings. Parents often have to end up saving money since before the child is born and many end up taking student loans, which they are unable to pay off for the rest of their lives. However, in Canada, there is the option to simply put the savings in an RESP account. This account accumulates a high interest rate until the child is legal and can go to university. Once accepted in a university, the money can be taken out and used to pay the academic fee required for admission and classes. This money also becomes non taxable and eases the burden on parents.
