Notes for template use[edit]

  • It is easy to update this template: click on the XE.Com link in the template to go to a web page with current rates for the currency.
    • Wikivoyage does not endorse XE.com - you can use another source for rates if you prefer, just be sure to identify your source in the template.
  • When updating the rates shown in the template, be sure to change the "as of" date too.
  • To avoid clutter, only major currencies should normally be used -- US dollars, euros and British pounds.
  • In some cases, it may be appropriate to add other currencies where a country may receive a lot of visitors from nearby countries, e.g.,
    • Canadian tourists in Mexico and the Caribbean,
    • Chinese in East Asia,
    • Australians in Southeast Asia and New Zealand,
    • Indians in South Asia, and
    • South Africans in southern Africa.
