Currency exchange is a business like many others: there are travellers who buy currency from a retailer (the one that sells us Bulgarian Levs). These in turn buy that currency from a wholesale business. The gap between what they have paid for Bulgarian Levs and what they charge you is the profit margin they get.
However, in this currency exchange market, it may happen that the currency provider or bank does not buy the notes from an intermediary, but instead obtains it from a consumer flying to to Spain with Bulgarian Levs.
In this case, in addition to earning a profit for buying the notes from this person, they apply to you another margin when they sell you the currency. Double win!
If you have levs BGN left over upon return to Spain, go to our Sell your currency tab, fill in the Bulgarian Lev banknotes you did not spend (banknotes only, not loose coins) and choose your town. We will display the nearest foreign currency supplier´s branches that will buy your leftover levs BGN from you and the total amount of Euros they will hand you in exchange.
Please acknowledge that they will uniquely acquire you levs BGN notes but not loose change.
Normally, currency suppliers in Spain have high limits for a one shot online order of Bulgarian Levs or any other holiday money. These maximum quantities are imposed by the Spanish Central Bank. They are related to the antimoney laundering norms and KYC (Know Your Customer) requirements
Nevertheless, these maximum quantities generally range between 3,000 and 5,900 euros, which is a lot more than what a tourist needs for their travel expenses.
In Spain, today there is no problem in buying levs online. Additionally to being a very comfortable service since you order whenever you want and a courier will take your currency to your home, you ensure availability and you skip commissions. Besides, most currency providers who deliver travel money to your place offer free shipping costs with your order.
As a rule, we recommend to avoid any supplier that charges you a commission ás well asan exchange margin, and compare on our website the Euro to Bulgarian Lev exchange rate of the day.
Almost all banks in Spain apply to you a three per cent fee, with a minimum (whichever is higher) amount of 6 to 10 euros.
Keep in mind that the smaller the amount of levs to obtain, the more the impact of this fixed commission on your personal finances.
The usual thing is that the holiday money provider where you will purchase your Bulgarian Levs will ask you to provide a valid and current identity document (passport or resident´s identity card called DNI or NIE in Spain). Bear in mind that the driver's ID is not generally accepted as a valid ID.
Contrarily banks will not normally request any ID from their customers who purchase Bulgarian Levs for they already identified them when they opened an account with them.
If you need to ensure the obtainability of levs BGN for your trip, Cambiator recommends you to book online on the Internet site of the chosen holiday money supplier.
Furthermore, in this way you save the possible fees that some currency providers in Spain impose on you by changing directly in one of their stores.
In Spain when you book online on your bank's website or App, you will still pay their foreign currency fee of around two to three per cent, and you will pay at the exchange rates of the day of collection, not those of the day of the online reservation.
Citizens only remember their bank when they purchase levs with euros. But Cambiator recommends that you assess the possibility of foreign exchange providers. And the reason for this is because practically all banks in Spain apply on you a fixed commission of 3% (with a minimum of between 6 and 10 euros) besides a margin on the levs that you purchase from them.
On the other hand, the foreign exchange providers that announce no commission are more attractive to your wallet since they do not impose on you this commission.
Cambiator compares any time for you the euro to Bulgarian Lev foreign currency exchange rates online and in your city so that you can choose the option that best suits you.
The euro to Bulgarian Lev price changes every day. The currencies of countries with more stable economies oscillate less, and vice-versa. But it is also necessary to take into account events such as the Ukraine war or Brexit, major sporting events or economic crisis, which can impact the exchange rates of a specific currency, like the Bulgarian Lev, right away.
Nevertheless, most banks and currency suppliers usually revise the rate at which they buy or sell Bulgarian Levs once a day, early in the morning.
Cambiator always has its rates up to date, so that you are shown the best data available on exchange rates.
