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.

Quick, easy and a good rate.

Only gripe sneaky little surcharge on orders up to - and, I note, including - £300. In fairness to Travelex, they aren't alone in this, and overall they do seem to offer the best rates around. However, if, like me, you don't like to leave collecting your foreign currency until just before you fly, an extra trip to your local airport could inconvenience some.

Great service

Everything happened as it should have done, no problems at all. I have already recommended this service to other people and will use the Company again at the first opportunity.


Easy transaction to get a Money Card

Easy transaction to get a Money Card. Only gripe was the charge made for the card. Not clearly shown when ordering until final bill. Others don't charge for the card. Perhaps we get a better exchange rate, don't know, but difficult to check anyway.

Booked currency on-line at the last minute for collection at Heathrow and got better rate than buying directly at the airport. Also offered additional currency at the on-line rate. Collection seemed a little slow but we were in a rush for our flight
