Exchange rates is not very good at Kuala Lumpur International Airport

  • There are many currency exchangers in KLIA and KLIA2. You can find them both before and after baggage collection
  • Inside the airport, the rates are better before baggage collection than after
  • But all the rates are worse than in town. I don't remember the specifics but I'd estimate the airport rates are probably ~5% worse at the airport than in Kuala Lumpur city center
  • Convert enough money to get to town (if you take taxi you can pay by credit card too). For the best rates in Kuala Lumpur go to the shopping malls there will be lots of money exchangers inside them and in the surrounding area. Mid Valley and NU Sentral shopping malls both have great exchangers with great rates
