Because not all South Dakota banks are able to exchange foreign currency, travelers might want to exchange their money at major gateway airports (cities like Denver or Minneapolis).
Make sure your staff is familiar with the AT&T Language Line (800-528-5888). It's an excellent way to access interpreters for more than 140 languages 24 hours a day.
