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.

Skye Smith

Good service

Good service, that I use every time I travel mostly to the USA, in the beginning, getting cash. Then ordered a Travelex cash passport card instead of carrying cash. i still order some cash from Travelex for tipping etc... but most times to reload my Travelex cash passport. I would recommend Travelex Mr R Baker

Ronald Christopher Baker

Great service but too much plastic

Great service and fast delivery, very easy to use. My only complaint is the amount of plastic packaging you used - unnecessary.

Mr JASON TUCK

I have used Travelex for years but this…

I have used Travelex for years but this year's experience was a little disappointing on three counts: 1) My wife bought her Turkish Lira from John Lewis as she got a better rate. 2) I dislike the charge for collecting small sums of money. 3) The time it takes to hand back any left over cash on "buy back" is ridiculous - It was as though the guy at the till was typing War and Peace! My receipt didn't have a bar code which he assured me would make it much quicker - OK so why didn't my receipt have a bar code?

R Barltrop

  • 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.
