  1. The package will follow the normal delivery process for your office and may not be delivered directly to you in person.  For example, if your packages are normally signed for by your office reception or post room, then the same process should apply for your Travelex order. Risk in the order shall pass to you when the order is signed for at your office address (whether it is signed for by you or someone else). Important: In the event that your order is signed for by a person other than you, then we cannot accept responsibility for the loss or theft of such an order or part thereof.

  3. This service is currently in a ‘pilot’ phase. Its operation and the postal codes to which it is offered are subject to change at Travelex’s discretion.

If that is not possible, we will cancel and refund you. The service can be withdrawn at any point and orders rejected at our discretion.

All Orders

We will use the exchange rate (as set by us) that appears on the ordering screen at the time we receive your order. You must provide the requested information for us to process your order. We reserve the right to request further information from you at any time to enable us to complete your order and/or to comply with regulatory requirements. We will use various procedures to authenticate each transaction and may, at any time, decline to process your order or any part of your order for any reason. By placing an order, you confirm that the details contained in the order are correct in all respects. The system will display a confirmation screen setting out the details of your order. This confirms receipt of your order. A contract between you and us is only formed when we send you a confirmation email that your credit or debit card payment has been accepted. Please print a copy of the confirmation screen for your records and print or store the confirmation email in a safe place, as it will be the only record of your transaction.

Pay on Collection

If your online order is unsuccessful you may be offered our pay on collection service. With pay on collection you can take advantage of our great online rates by selecting a date and location to collect your order, with payment not being taken until you collect your order. You will receive the rates you would have received had your initial online order been successful, rather than the walk-up rates of your chosen collection location.

Please note: if you fail to collect your order form the nominated Travelex location within 72 hours of the collection time then your order will be marked as non-collected and your order will be cancelled.

Collecting Your Travel Money

If you choose to place an order for collection, orders can be collected by the card holder only from the Travelex UK locations listed on the ordering screen. Collection is subject to the opening times of the collection location.

Please remember to allow sufficient time to make your collection before departing on your travels.

At the time of collection the cardholder will need to produce the card used to make the purchase plus either a valid passport, UK Photographic Driving Licence or EU ID card for identification purposes. Depending on your order, Travelex reserves the right to ask for further information and identification (such as proof of residential address) in accordance with its anti-money laundering policies. The name on the card used to make the purchase must match that on the identification document(s) used. In order to enable Travelex to comply with its anti-money laundering and other legal obligations and its internal risk and fraud policies, Travelex reserves the right to take a copy of your identification document(s) at the time of collection.

Promotions

Countdown Offers

A "Countdown Offer" is any Travelex online promotion which is available for a short period of time, these could last from an hour to a day (for example, a Euro rate promotion which lasts for 1 hour, or a US Dollars rate promotion which lasts for 24 hours) (also known as a "Currency Happy Hour") whereby the offer is "counted down" by use of a timer (the "Timer") on the Website.

From time to time, Travelex may offer you Countdown Offers on the Website, subject to the following terms and conditions:

  1. A Countdown Offer only applies to online orders on the Website for the duration specified on the Timer. Please note that due to the amount of time it takes for rates to be uploaded onto the Website, the Countdown Offer may be available on the Website up to 10 minutes before the Timer is due to start and 5 minutes after the Timer has run out. This is to ensure that the Countdown Offer is available for the full duration of the promotion.
  2. A Countdown Offer may apply to more than one currency rate at any one time, subject to the time limits imposed by the Timer.
  3. In order to qualify for the Countdown Offer rate all you need to do is enter the amount of the particular currency which is subject to the Countdown Offer in the ordering screen – the promotional rate will automatically apply to your order should you complete your order by clicking "Buy My Currency Now" within the time limits indicated by the Timer.
  4. If you have not clicked on "Buy My Currency Now" before the Timer runs out, you will receive the following message: "A rate change has occurred, please check your order summary as it may have changed". Should you wish to proceed with your order you will be charged the new rate and not the promotional rate under the Countdown Offer.

Promotion Codes

From time to time Travelex or its affiliates may provide you with a special Promotion Code for use on the Website. Please note that some Promotion Codes may only be available for a limited time. Travelex does not guarantee the availability of Promotion Codes or the terms of any such offers.

All credit and debit card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment your order will not be accepted.

3D Secure is a payment verification protocol used by major card issuers, branded as 'MasterCard Secure Code' and 'Verified by Visa' to prevent credit card fraud. Depending on the card issuer, 3D Secure is an opt-out option or a required service for using the card to make internet purchases. Cards registered with 3D Secure require the user to enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN) code or password. This PIN code is not the same PIN code issued with the card.

3D Secure verifies the card details provided by you. The system is completely automated and we do not store or process any of the data provided by the 3D Secure system.
