You can exchange cash or travellers cheques at any bank or exchange office. Rates are not fixed and vary from one place to another.

Banks generally take a 0,30% commission. The exchange offices do not, but the rate is often less favourable. In some offices, you can negotiate a better deal on exchanging large amounts.

Savings banks only open from Mon. to Fri. in the morning and Thursday afternoons. Banks also open on Sats.

The exchange offices are found mainly in the centre of the city (The Rambla), at the airport and at the railway stations. Their opening hours vary, but some remain open till late, including weekends. If you are in need, you can also exchange money at hotels, although probably at a poorer rate.
