The heartbreak of seeing your money halved as it’s exchanged from AU$ to US$ is amplified when the currency exchange teller advises you of their service fee.

Although it’s expected, you can’t help but feel some genuine devastation over the financial loss, everytime.

Fortunately, there’s one place in Orlando that wants to ensure its happy visitors remain ecstatic by offering free currency conversion.

BOO-YEAH!

George Aguel of Visit Orlando – the tourism body for the number one American city for international and domestic visitors – revealed at IPW in Anaheim this week, that it had opened a new Official Visitor Centre on International Drive where visitors can actually exchange their money for free.

No service fees, you’re welcome.

The President and Chief Executive told media that the visitor centre is unlike any in the world and free currency exchange isn’t the only reason. It also has multilingual team members who are experts in the destination, discounted attraction tickets, area maps, free tote bags and more.

“There’s no visitor centre in any community like what we’ve created here. We wanted it to be unique and the best.”

Orlando’s Official Visitor Centre is located on 8102 International Drive and is open seven days a week from 8.00am to 9.00pm.

Aguel also told media that the destination continues to undergo changes that make it ideal not just for first-time visitors but repeat ones too.
