  • Can I sell my foreign currency to Travelex?

    Yes! In the vast majority of cases, we’ll buy your foreign currency back from you when you visit a Travelex store.

  • Do you purchase all currencies?

    Unfortunately, we're not always able to purchase every possible currency in the world since there are restrictions in place on certain currencies. However, we do accept most major currencies.

    Generally, we don’t accept coins besides €1 and €2 coins, which our store locations may be willing to accept. Please contact our nearest store directly for more information on this.

  • Do you purchase old or discontinued currency?

    No, unfortunately we aren’t able to purchase any currency that’s no longer in circulation.

Pity you can't reply to emails

No problems with either buying foreign currency or a Travelex Money Card. The card is easy to top up on line but I would like to know how to collect Avios when purchasing on line? I have emailed you but you haven't replied so am deducting points for that reason.

Never had an issue with Travelex. Utilised the airport facilities in the past as well. Slightly better rate then local post office. Ability to choose delivery day important as well as I’m a shift worker.

Very good service but I would have preferred some $5 also more $10 bills rather than large amounts of $100 and $50 bills. Other than that the service was excellent. It was delivered to my home early in the morning, on time.
