Re: I remember Travelex

Usually, these rip-offs occur where there is a local monopoly, so the lucky consumer has no choice.

Said monopoly is frequently artificially created and maintained by a larger local monopoly such as as the airport company / authority, thereby ensuring jumbo-sized profits all round (except, of course, for the aforementioned lucky consumers)

Monopoly capitalism, red in tooth and claw
