While not anywhere as exortive as they were when we started this site, airport forex exchange fees are still high. You pay for the convenience of not planning ahead, and being able to exchange spur-of-the-moment. Fees/service charges can go from between 7 up to 20% at some airports. It's even worse near tourist destinations. A famous excahnge ripoff is near Charles Bridge in Prague. I paid a combo fee/service charge of 42% one fine autumn day when I needed to exchange some Euros. Doah!
