There are probably hundreds of money changers in Iloilo City. Here are a couple that I have had good luck with, good luck meaning that the exchange rates are good, the bills they have given me are good, they have not been too fussy about the bills I give them and there have been no instances of them trying to shortchange me:
My definite favorite is Valiant Bank, a rural bank that seems to do a lot of money changing. They are located on the east side of Mabini Street, just a block or so from Robinson’s.  The staff are honest, pleasant and accommodating.  Dona Joy (0906-450-5123) seems to be in charge of money changing.

There is another popular money changer (affiliated with Valiant Bank)  in the first floor of the Casa Plaza Building which is adjacent to the Atrium Shopping Center.  If you need Euros or other international currencies this is a good bet.

    • Although the Euro became the official currency of Austria in 1999, euro coins and notes were not introduced until 2002. Old Schilling denominated coins and notes were phased out from circulation because of the introduction of the euro by 28 February of that year. Schilling banknotes and coins which were valid at the time of the introduction of the euro will remain exchangeable for euros at any branch of the Austrian National Bank (Österreichische Nationalbank) indefinitely.

    • I very much doubt it. When we travelled to Malaysia we were unable to obtain Malaysian ringgits in Iloilo.

    • Well, possibly but I doubt the rate would be good. Better to change your reals in a bigger city before you get to Iloilo.

  1. The money changer in Casa Plasa is great. Quick service and if you have a large amount you can phone ahead and wait inside their office, so it’s safer than most.

    SM mall money changers are inconvenient. You have to fill up a form and write every single serial code for every bill you want to exchange. Just a heads up, if you want to save time and hassle.

  3. 75% of the time, I also go to Kiryu..had been doing so for the past 10 yrs. The Jalbuenas are the owners. Yes, they overlook the sometimes torn and marked dollar bills…then off to The Atrium to grocery shop 🙂
