Are you going to travel abroad or did you just arrive in a foreign country without having local currencies? You don’t have the time to run around to visit all the currency exchange offices of the town or be outsmarted with exorbitant fees... In a business trip or a leisure trip, The coChange mobile application is for you!
Totally free (and without ads), the coChange application covers 100 countries. It allows you to quickly locate the nearest currency exchange offices among 10,000 money changers referenced, and to benefit from the exclusive offers of the partners offices (special rates, flash sales, etc.)
To use coChange abroad and go to a currency exchange office instead of using your bank card is also a way to travel on a more sustainable manner: Your currencies benefit to a local business (often run by a family) and go through the country's economy instead of being transferred to international banking intermediaries.
Moreover, using a bank card leads to fees that are often hidden and that you will discover later. Good foreign exchange offices are transparent about the fees and offers at the end a rate that is more interesting.

Nice idea, app doesn't work
Review title kinda says it all. Entered in all the information they asked for, no results.
Developer Response ,

We are working hard on covering the world step by step (and the world is vast), but of course we can't locate a currency exchange office where there are none :)
