How can buying travel money before you go can help your trip abroad go smoothly?
Buying travel money can be confusing – but we’re here to help. Different countries use different currencies, so you’ll need to pay for things with the local money. Unfortunately, this usually isn’t British pounds! While you’ll probably be able to withdraw money from some cashpoints and use your debit or credit card, this isn’t ideal because:
- your bank will charge you a transaction fee and possibly an additional card usage fee each time
- you might find some places or cashpoints that won’t take your card.
Lots of people order travel money online in advance so they won’t have to worry about things like this. You can either order foreign currency in cash or on a prepaid card. Travelex provides over 45 different currencies, and our Globe Cash Passport can be used anywhere that takes MasterCard.
Ordering online with us is easy, simply use our currency converter calculator at the top of the page to enter in the currency you need, pay securely online and either collect from one of our stores across the UK or we can deliver to your home the very next day.
