Easiest Way to Convert Currencies


I use this tip a lot when I’m researching travel online.

If you type, for example

100 EUR to USD

into any regular, plain old Google search box, it will calculate the currency conversion for you. In fact if you are converting to USD, all you need to do is type 100 EUR.

You need to type the currency code in UPPERCASE.

Here is a list of currency codes if you’re not sure of the code for wherever you’re traveling
