Travel, Currency and Money saving tips for Belize

The Belize Dollar (BZD) has been pegged to the US dollar for several decades now. The official rate is 2BZD = 1USD. US dollars are widely accepted throughout the country but don't take large bills as it could be hard to get change back in USD. If you do have BZD and are travelling to bordering countries, its worth noting that BZD is often accepted in the towns immediately across the borders at Melchor de Mencos in Guatemala and Chetumal in Mexico. Be sure to exchange any excess BZDs prior to leaving the country as it will be difficult to change otherwise.

Get a better deal for foreign transfers to Belize

When sending money to Belize it’s important to compare your bank’s rates & fees with those we have negotiated with our partner money transfer providers. To get a better deal you should follow these 4 simple steps :

  1. Open an account with a BER reviewed FX provider (id docs may be required)
  2. You specify the local or Belize Dollar amount you want to transfer
  3. Make a local currency domestic transfer for the requested amount to the provider's bank account in your country
  4. Once your funds are received by the provider the converted BZD amount will be transfered to the recipient account you specify in Belize.

Use the above Send to Belize Dollars calculator to compare the exchange rates of FX specialist providers rates versus your bank's standard rates you can hopefully save around 5% and maybe more - end result is more Belize Dollars deposited into the recipient bank account and less margins and fees kept by the banks!
