Calculate live currency with this free currency converter.
A currency converter is a calculator that converts the value or quantity of one currency into the relative values or quantities of other currencies.
For example, if you had $1 that needed to be exchanged into the local currency of a country you are visiting, you would need to know the dollar-euro conversion, if you were traveling to certain parts of Europe, the dollar-pound conversion if you were in traveling in the United Kingdom, the dollar-yen conversion if you were traveling in Japan, the Canadian dollar-U.S. dollar conversion if you were traveling in Canada or the Swiss francs-dollar conversion if you were traveling in Switzerland.
A currency converter stores the most recent market valuations of the world's currencies, which allows individuals to compare the value of one currency against those of others in the database.
The values of the different currencies are determined based on the supply or demand of dealing prices between international banks.
Currency converters are often used as a means of checking the relative value of a currency before exchanging it into another currency.
This is useful for the traveler because the traveler can check the value of a foreign county’s currency before exchanging money.
These programs list the value of a foreign country’s currency relative to the traveler’s own currency.
