Being a Forex marketplace, every money changer competes with others. They will always offer you the best rate, so that they get your order. You may not get the same rate if you directly walk in to the same store.
I got to know about extravelmoney.com from a friend of mine. The transaction was really simple, fast & flawless. I was impressed with their ability to meet my need, so quickly.

Complete process was very hassle free, right from choosing of exchange rate, confirmation of order and receiving money. I am sure I wouldn`t have got this exchange rate and service quality if I directly walked in to anyone of the forex vendors

Hong Kong Special Administrative Region is an extended territory of The People’s Republic of China. The Hong Kong Dollar is the official currency of the region apart from the Chinese Renminbi used in the mainland China. Represented by HKD or HK$, the currency is issued by three banks; HSBC, Bank of China, Standard Chartered and controlled by Hong Kong Monetary Authority. The banknotes are of 10, 20, 50, 100, 150, 500, 1000 HK$ and coins are of 0.1, 0.2, 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10 HK$. The HKD has an exchange value between 7-9 Indian Rupees. ExTravelMoney offers you forex services at no extra cost right at your doorsteps regarding the buying/ selling of Hong Kong Dollar.
If you a resident Indian, you are allowed to carry Hong Kong dollars as cash, equivalent to maximum 3,000 US Dollars (approximately 23000 HKD). If you want to carry even more Hong Kong dollars, you can load them in forex card or traveller’s cheque. The total amount, including cash has to be less than 10,000 USD equivalent (approximately 78000 HKD).
Yes, the Hong Kong dollar is widely accepted in Macau. Macau has its own currency the Macanese Pataca (MOP) which is pegged to the Hong Kong dollar. 1.03 MOP equals 1 HKD that is the Hong Kong dollar is roughly 3% more valuable than MOP. However, please note that when you are in Macau and use HKD for your payments, you’ll be charged a 1:1 exchange rate. For example, if you buy an antique vase in Macau, priced at MOP 100 and pay for it with HKD, you’ll be charged HKD 100 i.e. a loss of nearly 3 HKD in exchange rate.
