See a bank representative for more details. Exchange rates may fluctuate throughout the course of each day, sometimes significantly. Brattleboro Savings and Loan does not set the currency exchange rates, all exchange rates are assigned by our correspondent bank, ACBB, at the time that each currency order or currency redemption is placed with them. There are many factors that affect the rate of exchange such as market conditions, fees charged by ACBB, market risk and more. Exchange rates are subject to change without notice until your transaction is processed with ACBB, at which time your exchange rate is locked in. We will tell you your exact exchange rate at the time that your transaction is placed with ACBB. The exchange rate that is quoted when you purchase your foreign currency may be different than the exchange rate quoted when you redeem your leftover currency. You acknowledge and accept all risks that may result from market fluctuations. We do not accept any liability for our exchange rates. Foreign currency is exchanged for customers of Brattleboro Savings and Loan only, we cannot exchange currency for non-customers.
