TravelersBox at Changi Airport is A Genius Solution For Your Leftover Currency

These new yellow boxes at Terminal 1 and 3 brilliantly convert your unwanted leftover currency to digital money. BRB heading to Changi Airport.

It’s the last leg of your vacation and you’re at the airport stuck with $7.80 of leftover currency. Too much for a box of mints, yet barely enough for an (overpriced) meal at the departure hall’s bistro. Sounds familiar?

If you haven’t heard, TravelersBox is the latest jewel in Changi Airport’s crown of top notch amenities, and it is determined to solve all these pesky post-vacation currency issues we’re too familiar with.

The digital money redeemed can be spent at shops including Grab, Starbucks, iTunes, Lazada, Skype, Amazon.ch, Amazon.jp, Facebook, Qoo10, Tokopedia and Viber. TravelersBox has even teamed up with charities such as Red Cross and Changi Foundation.
