Frequently asked questions

Back to top
  • 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.

    We’re also unable to accept any legacy currencies from the countries now using the euro. If you want to double check which countries are using the euro, visit the European Central Bank.

    If you’re not sure if we accept a currency, please feel free to contact us on 0845 8727 627.

  • Do you purchase coins?

    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.

Really handy way to take currency off…

Really handy way to take currency off on holiday. Competitive exchange rates. Only reason it doesn't get top rating is the website for viewing card balances does not have a simple way of stepping into a top up dialogue.

Easy service to use on line

Easy service to use on line. Currency was waiting for me at Travelex desk in the Airport. The staff were friendly and helpful. Wasn't the best exchange rate I'd seen, however it was the easiest for me at that time. Worth checking out to see if it suits.
