" Travelex

We're sorry but our online travel money service isn't available right now.

This is as a result of a malware. Upon discovery, we immediately began an investigation and as a precautionary measure, took all our systems offline to prevent the spread of the malware further across our network. 

Since then, we’ve been working with a team of world-renowned international cyber experts to contain it, and now we are turning our focus to a robust recovery and remediation strategy. To date, there is no evidence that any data has left the organisation. 

We are pleased to announce that today we took another positive step forward. Our first customer-facing systems in the UK are now live. We are therefore serving customers electronically in our UK stores and in some of our UK retail partner locations and expect to begin testing in some Travelex branches outside the UK this week. Customers in UK airports will also be able to access our VAT refund services. This is part of our phased approach to the global restoration of our systems.

Throughout our recovery, our priority is to ensure that our systems are brought back up in a controlled, secure and managed way. In addition, we continue to make progress in testing the systems that support our UK high street banking partners. Travelex is also making good progress on restoring its proprietary UK International Money Transfer Service, which will be available by the end of the month.

We continue to work with the relevant authorities, including the Metropolitan Police, who are conducting their own criminal investigations. 

Keeping our customers and partners up to date on progress remains a priority. We have a Hub which will hold updates on our progress which you can access via www.travelex.com/customer-update
