I am travelling in Colombia and I would like to share my experience and ask for recommendations while travelling in Colombia.
- My base currency is DKK.
- I withdraw money 3 times as they charge 4% when you use cash here.
- I took money from
- Banko Colombia (max 400,000 COP and they charge 14,000 COP
- BBVA (max 300,000 COP, once I was not charged fee for withdrawal but the second time I was charged about 2USD, don’t know how it really works).
Have you tried any other banks here?
My another question is, do you think I should keep all the money in my base currency which is DKK and let it be exchanged to COP (the exchange rates varies a lot) or change to completely other currency for instance USD and let be exchanged from it.
- I couldnt add my virtual card nor physical card to uber but you can pay in cash to drivers. It is way better than taking taxis here that are 2x more expensive.
Hope you will find this topic helpful!
