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.

Everything worked as it should and very quickly, once I was able to find the right links on the site. They are not as clear and obvious as they could be and can result in a circular tour of the main site, which is rather frustrating. "Buttons" that make it clear where they point would be a help.

Use Travelex every year

Use Travelex every year, yes you can get a slightly better rate elsewhere. However, the currency card is reliable & no ATM fees (check which ATM you use). Simple process & reliable service which is why I pay a tiny bit extra.

Frequently asked questions

Back to top
  • 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 Travelex Money Card, 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.
