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.

Good flexibility if not straightforward

Great having the ability to add additional funds while abroad. Slightly frustrating not able to simply add funds while in the multi currency website - you have to go back to the travelex website instead which makes it much slower than it needs to be. Also unable to save a card to the account to allow even quicker top ups
