  • 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.

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

I have never picked up currency in a airport before but I will in future it was so much easier than getting the currency before you go, there was only one other person in front of me.Thanks.


Good experience

Website was easy to access. Everything I asked for happened when I wanted it to happen.


I booked some US dollars on line 24 …

I booked some US dollars on line 24 hours before our flight from Heathrow terminal 5. The rate was good and collection of the dollars was quick and easy. the only point I would make is that the rate advertised for 'walk up' customers was over 10% worse so make sure you book your currency online before you go to the airport!

Great card

Great card, no fees, generally good exchange rate by comparison with competitors. Wish they didn't make the currency card contactless however - feels risky when traveling abroad.


No bureau at Gatwick

No bureau at Gatwick. Only issue is that I asked if I could use the buy back at Gatwick and told yes only to find no Travelex bureau anywhere near Gatwick.

Great Savings

I have found the Travelex pre-paid travel card to be the most economical way to carry local currency. No fees for using it, no fees to withdraw cash locally. and a competitive exchange rate make it a must have.
