This is how we always collect our money now. We normally miss the deadline for sainsburys/post office etc for ordering currencies, and it's far easier to turn up and collect when we have our passports to hand than making a specific trip, at a certain time in the last minute rushing around getting things ready.Michael Dunn

Always pre order my currency with Travelex and collect at the airport. Never had any issues and always get a decent rate if pre bookedLaura McTague
Excellent website, easy to use. Competitive rates. Friendly staff. Always order our currency to be picked up from the airport and it's always been a positive experience.LShoz
Was great and so easy using this card I highly recommend having one to use abroad we could use it to pay everywhere we visited. Safer than using money as if you lose the card it gets replaced and you get all your money back that you had loaded onto it.Toni Walker

How to buy currency
Buying currency with Travelex is easy. You can buy currency either online or at a Travelex store located in several airports and cities around the world. The process for buying currency is the same online as it is in retail stores:
- Calculate either how much currency you would like to exchange, or how much currency you would like to purchase. For example, do you have £500 to exchange into US dollars, or would you like to purchase $500?
- Check the exchange rate of the currency pair. The exchange rate is how much one currency is worth in comparison to the other. The pound/dollar currency pairs can be denoted like this: GBP/USD
- Exchange rates will always be numerical, and fluctuate regularly depending on the value of each currency. For example, the GBP/USD currency pair could fluctuate from £1/$1.2780 to £1/$1.2802 in the space of a few hours. This means that one pound can now buy 1.2802 dollars, whereas a few hours ago, it could only buy 1.2780 dollars. The pound has strengthened against the dollar.
- If the exchange rate is favourable, i.e the currency you wish to buy is selling for a good price against your home currency, lock in your purchase either on our website or at one of our stores.
- If you purchase online, we will charge your bank card for the currency you have purchased. If you purchase in store, you can use either card or you home currency cash to purchase your foreign currency.
