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.

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.

Getting cash this way

Getting cash this way, especially if you need £600 or more, is very easy and reliable. That amount or more means free delivery.

Jeff Williams

Very pleasant service

Very pleasant service, nothing a problem as I had even turned up 24 hours early for my currency. Ok I booked it a day later than I should. Thanks.

Graham Peters

Consistently high service

As always the service experience is superb. It’s the element of your holiday arrangements you don’t have to worry about.

Brian

Very useful but charged for cash withdrawal in US

Easy to order card online, arrived on time. Liked that I could order cash at the same time. Decent exchange rate, not the top in the market, but acceptable. Found it useful to budget for travel. The only issue I had was that I was charged for withdrawing cash in both US and Mexico (approx $3 for each withdrawal of cash), even though I tried different ATMs and each seem to have a master card logo on it. I was disappointed as I was told cash withdrawal was free.

Worked fine second time

Worked fine second time. First time I tried to order it said there was an unspecified error. Apart from that the order was simple to make.

Still the best way to preorder foreign spending money at Heathrow

Excellent value as ever and you can upgrade your order at the landside pick up desk at the same online rate as the advance order. Definitely the best way to obtain foreign currency for smaller cash amounts. The staff were very friendly in the Terminal 5 counter in sector H as well
