  • 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.

Cash and a Travelex Money Card

We booked some cash and a Travelex money card, the transaction online and at the airport was fine. My only complaint is that I asked at the Heathrow Terminal 4 kiosk, where we picked up the money, about how to use the money card in Australia. I asked if I use the card as a debit card will I incur a fee and I was told yes but they told me if I use it at a cash point ATM there is no charge to withdraw money. Well the opposite was true and I didn't find this out until I was in the Sydney airport at the Travelex desk. Travelex need to make sure their staff give customers the correct information......all in all it was fine and i would use the service again.

Finding the correct website on Google

Finding the correct website on Google is a little difficult since there seem to be a number of similar sites. Otherwise pretty good and better exchange rates than the usual suspects plus no commission.
