KLIA2 Money Changers (Currency Exchange)

For international tourists arriving via KLIA2, don't worry about getting your currency exchanged. Many banks have set up their operation at the arrival and departure hall of KLIA2 to provide money changing service at your convenience. US Dollar, Thai Baht, Singapore Dollar, Australian Dollar, Indonesia Rupiah, India Rupee, China Renminbi, Korea Won, Japanese Yen, Euro, Great Britain Pound and all other major currencies are very well accepted here. 

Banks / Money Changers / Currency Exchanges at KLIA2

 CIMB Bank, Maybank and AMBank has already set up their currency exchange outlet at KLIA2. At the departure hall at Level 3, you can find Maybank and AMBank. CIMB is located at the arrival hall at Level 2. Changing your currency at these banks is very safe. They display the exchange rate clearly on the screen in front  of their outlets.
Maybank money changing service is quite popular. It is located before the departure hall at Level 3 of KLIA2

Ambank Currency Exchange at KLIA2 is just a few shops away from Maybank at the departure hall at Level 3.

CIMB Money Changer is located at Level 2 of KLIA2, at the far right end when you come out from the arrival, next to Giordano. 

Exchange Rates at KLIA2

The currency exchange rates at KLIA2 money changers are generally competitive to each other. Of course, each money changer will have better rates for certain currency compared to the other. Having said that, the exchange rates here may not be the cheapest in town. You can probably get better rates from money changer at Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station or Mid Valley Megamall in down town Kuala Lumpur. However, the difference will be very small if you just want to get a hundred or two hundred Ringgit Malaysia for your expenses at the airport such as food, souvenirs, KLIA Express ticket or taxi from KLIA2. In terms of safety, changing money at KLIA2 money changers is also very safe (you won't get robbed or cheated).

      Yes, they do. There are a few money changers at KLIA2. You can compare the exchange rates displayed outside their shops to find the best rates (the exchange rates change everyday). Generally, currency notes in good conditions are well accepted.

    1. Hello Akshay,
      I am not sure about this. I suppose it depends on the type of travel card you have. There are ATM machines that accept international credit cards at KL Airport but they mostly dispense local currency notes which is Malaysian Ringgit.

    1. Hello Ratri,
      If you only want to buy KLIA Express ticket, you can use your credit card / debit card to do so at the ticket counter or the ticketing machine rather than exchange SGD to RM at KLIA money changer.
