I had a small balance in a currency…

I had a small balance in a currency which I did not want for my recent holiday. I thus changed to the currency of the latter which left me with an odd amount (in dollars and cents) which I would never be able to withdraw (as ATM's dispense only high value notes). I was able to buy a top up in an odd amount to make my balance a round one! Problem solved. And use of the card - in this case in Canada - was as ever very easy. The only downsides were that most ATM's charged for use but free ones were available - but had to be sought. The worst aspect was that during our holiday the pound strengthened quite a lot (almost 10 cents) compared with the Travelex rate at the time I bought Canadian dollars!!

Convenient and speedy

Convenient and speedy. Not, however, the best rate of exchange.

ATMs in Greece

Very pleased to get a refund after being deceived by a Greek ATM with confusing instructions for withdrawing euros from my Travelex card. Also very pleased to be advised about how to avoid this in future - and the advice worked.

This was honestly a stress saver

This was honestly a stress saver! I was travelling to Japan but wasn't aware that I had to preorder my Japenese Yen and there were no shops open which had the amount of Yen that I wanted to exchange. After a quick search, I found that Travelex did last minute airport delivery, which was perfect for me as I was travelling on Monday morning and it was late early Saturday evening at this point. The rates were also one of the most favourable which I had found, which was a bonus as I didn't feel like I was losing money, or as much money as I would have lost if I had exchanged money at the airport. These were the benefits, the only drawbacks were that it took a while for my confirmation email to come through which would not have been an issue if I didnt need the money for the actual day that I placed the order for, but it finally came through late Saturday night which was fine, but may have posed an issue if they had told me that they couldn't fulfil my order. Other than that, the lady who served me would have benefitted in some customer service training. It wasn't that she was rude, but rather that she just didn't seem to care - she was more focused on the conversation she was having with a colleague than she was me, and looked quite annoyed that I had disrupted this very important conversation. Other than that, all was great and I would most definitely recommend Travelex for last-minute currency orders!

Straightforward, online order then collect

Really straightforward (I picked up from the airport before security). Scattily I left ordering to the last minute and this was one of the few places able to take my order as I didn't want the expensive rates at the airport (Chinese Renminbi and Indonesian Rupiah) and it was ready two days after ordering. The only issue was that Vietnamese Dong was not available to buy.

Sarah

Good exchange rates

Good exchange rates, easy to use website. Straight forward when picking up currency from airport Travelex desk. Will definitely use again, although my local Tesco now has a Travelex desk, so I may give that a try.

Online order for home delivery

I ordered currency online and had it delivered to my home. All went smoothly as usual. The only annoying thing was that you now have to order £600 worth to get free delivery whereas it used to be £500.
