Find the currency you need
Is it best to buy travel money before your trip?
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.
