Exchange Currency Before You Travel

Doing the exchange before you leave gives you more opportunities to shop around for the best rates and allows you to avoid the pain of having to deal with the exchange fees once you arrive and have more limited options.

Dear Visitors

Welcome to Continental, the only foreign currency exchange company in the Chicago suburbs. We’ve been buying and selling foreign currencies, travelers checks and drafts since 1987. I personally entered this business in 1981, first working for Deak-Perera Co. in downtown Chicago and then managing the foreign currency exchange at O’Hare Airport for First National Bank of Chicago.

A few years ago, I heard from one of our customers that we’re the best kept secret on the North Shore!

That’s not what we want to be and that’s why this web page exists. Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions or if you need today’s rates.
