Where can I exchange TWD to USD before leaving Taiwan? Is doing this at TPE airport a good option (I've heard the exhchange rates there are good, unlike other airports), or is it better to go to a bank in Taipei? In the latter case, does any bank exchange money? I haven't seen any currency exchange points (in contrast to Hong Kong where they are plentiful).

  • Bank of Taiwan (at least at the airport) charges 100 NTD for exchanges of NTD to foreign currency. Not sure about Mega Bank (which is also present at the airport).

1 Answer 1


At a bank. There are at least two in the airport. Bank of Taiwan is government owned and gives a fair exchange rate, so if you are going to the airport, no need to stop by a bank elsewhere on the way.

  • It looks like Bank of Taiwan at TPE opens at 9:00 AM, but my flight is at 9:50 AM, so I should probably go through security before 9 AM. Does any bank in the city offer currency exchange? Can I see the rates online?

  • Many big banks in Taiwan offer exchange. I used HSBC and another one which I don't recall the name last year.

  • My previous comment is wrong: according to the airport website, there are several branches of Bank of Taiwan at the airport, and at least one of them is open 24 hours.
