Foreign Currency Exchange Service – AVAILABLE NOW!

Pay like a local when you experience the local scene

Foreign currency is usually not on a traveler’s mind when planning a trip and is often done last minute. Paying in local cash when traveling internationally is common for many small transactions such as tips, taxi fare, cafes, shopping in markets, and provides an always available backup to credit cards. Many vendors even prefer cash since credit card processing fees cut into their profit and are more willing to negotiate.

Make sure you’re always ready to pay with foreign currency in hand by ordering your currency today in branch or online and get your currency delivered straight to your doorstep or local branch.

Check off the last box before your international travels

Avoid wasting time waiting in line at the airport and don’t get caught paying excessive transaction fees in foreign countries. Exchange your foreign currency with our experienced staff at the branch that is most convenient for you. We buy and sell over 90 foreign currencies, all of which can be ordered in branch or online and delivered to your home or local Motion FCU branch for pickup generally the next day. Our customers can be sure they got a great deal for their money with great exchange rates and extremely low fees.

Your local Motion FCU branch will also be waiting for you when you return home from your trip. Don’t leave your currency in a drawer and forget you have it. Simply bring in your foreign money and we can exchange it back to US dollars. This will allow you to walk out with your cash in hand and not wasted. Please be aware we do not accept foreign coins and recommend spending the remainder of those on your trip.

Money Orders

For your convenience you can purchase Money Orders at any Motion branch for only $1.50 per money order, up to $1,500.

A Money Order is convenient when you want to guarantee funds for a payment. It is useful in instances when a merchant may not accept a check. A Money Order guarantees that the funds are available as they will be received from Motion and not the member’s checking account.

To purchase a money order visit any of our branches and we will be happy to serve you.
