The only complaint I have it's that I was only given one denomination of currenyPat Cyl
I ordered Mexican Pesos online. I received an email that the order was ready before the estimated time. Pick-up was quick and easy.Robert Bedell
Easy peasy. "Currency is ready" email came a day early.Ali
Every aspect of the currency transaction was flawless. Most outstanding customer service and support operation I have ever seen. Travelex obviously hires good people and arms them with access to transactional details and the training to take care of any issues that arise. I would never use anyone else!Robert Lock
Kind of a complex experience. To start with, would have been a 5 if it were just for me. I ordered currency and it came complete and on time. What else could one ask for? Complication was that I ordered it for someone else whose card you kept rejecting. She made two calls to you and three to her card company and the issue could not get resolved. Her card is working fine on her trip as we speak so that says something.Kris Kauffman
WHAT A BETTER COMPLEMENT THAN HAVING NO COMPLAINTS!!!!GERMAN D GOMEZ

Fast, easy and safe. It is the only way I will buy travel currency.R Osswald
Travelex has become my go-to place any time I need foreign currency or need to exchange it for something else. The online service could not be any easier to use and my currency often arrives earlier than I requested it. I highly recommend travelex.com.Neil Bright
I only wish I had consulted them on euro vs pound;-)Michael Curran
Excellent service right to your door. Website made it very easy to order what you needed.MAWK1
You can convert one currency into another using an exchange rate. For example, an exchange rate of 15 Mexican Pesos to one US dollar means that you could convert 15 Mexican Pesos into one US dollar – or one US dollar into 15 Mexican Pesos. Pretty simple! In reality, you’ll get a slightly different exchange rate depending on whether you’re buying or selling a currency. To get to grips with the different kinds of exchange rate you might hear about, see our Currency Jargon Explained section.
A company providing foreign currency needs to cover the additional costs that come from supplying people with currency. The cost of supplying foreign currency online are much less, so you’ll usually get a better rate online. If you leave buying currency to the last minute, you’ll probably end up paying over the odds, so it makes sense to plan ahead.
Currencies constantly move up and down against each other because they’re traded on financial markets. Market changes can be caused by supply and demand, as well as by political and economic events.
You can’t predict when exchange rates will go up or down. But our currency converter above will show you historical rates, to give you an idea of how the current conversion rate compares to the past few months or year.
You can convert your US dollars into over 45 currencies with Travelex, either online or at one of our many stores across the US.
