Buy currency online with Travelex

We're here to help you get the foreign currency you need for your trip.

Order your foreign currency online from a brand you can trust


Travelex is the world's largest non-bank supplier of foreign currency, and we’re proud to bring you almost 40 years of experience in currency trading.

With over 45 currencies available from us online, we’re here to help – whether you need to purchase foreign currency for your holiday abroad or if you’re part of a business of any size.

Every day we set the best rates that we can, in order to bring you our very best deals. We check the exchange rates of major banks and high street retailers daily, and adjust our rates according to what we find. This guarantees that we can bring you a highly competitive overall price on your foreign currency.

Find the currency you need

Is it best to buy travel money before your trip?


Buying travel money can seem confusing, but we’re here to help you out. To find out the currency you need for your trip, use our currency converter tool and simply type in your destination.

Although you’ll probably be able to use your credit or debit card abroad, it’s often not really the best idea. You’ll find that your bank will charge you a hefty transaction fee every time that you use your card, and they may even charge you an additional card usage fee each time. What’s more, relying on ATMs abroad may not be your best bet either, as you may find that your card isn’t accepted and you can’t withdraw any money.

With this in mind, it really is a great option to order your travel money before you jet off on your holiday. You can either order foreign currency to have in cash, or keep it on a prepaid card. At Travelex, we have over 45 different currencies to choose from and our Cash Passport prepaid card can be used anywhere that takes MasterCard.

Ordering online with us is easy and we have a multitude of delivery options to choose from, including having your order delivered to your home the very next day or collecting from one of our stores across the UK.  

And the best part is: if you manage to find a better overall price elsewhere for your travel money, we’ll refund you the difference as part of our Online Price Promise.

Frequently asked questions

  • When will I receive my foreign currency?

    When ordering your currency online you will be able to select the date that you would like to either have your currency delivered to your home/office or when you would like to collect it from one of our stores. The time period between ordering and collecting all other currencies depends on the specific currency ordered and the collection location selected.

    For orders placed between 3pm on Thursday and 3pm on Friday, Royal Mail may deliver your order on the Saturday but this isn’t guaranteed. If you choose Monday delivery, please note that Royal Mail may deliver your order on Saturday.

    A signature will be required upon delivery. All home deliveries of foreign currency banknotes and travellers’ cheques are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery (unless we advise you otherwise), and can only be sent to your credit or debit card billing address. A valid landline home telephone number is required for home delivery. Please note that if your order includes a Cash Passport, this will be delivered separately and normally arrives within 3 to 5 business days.

    Royal Mail Special Delivery is available to almost every UK address. For details and exceptions visit www.royalmail.com.
