You can find a better rate elsewhere but I used them because they were convenient.James Schrimshire
Delivery was prompt and currency was provided in small bills. However, I found the delivery fee high, and was disappointed to be unable to have both cash and a currency card delivered under a single fee.Georgina

We wanted to have cash when we got to Australia, and found the TravelEx website while researching exchange rates. We learned about the TravelEx cash card and decided to take a small amount of cash and keep a larger amount of Australian dollars on the cash card. We were able to do all this via the website, but opted to go to the TravelEx store at North Park Mall in Dallas to pick up our cash and the cash cards instead of having them shipped for free. We called to confirm everything with the store and spoke with Amy. She was very helpful, efficient, and informed us on how to add funds to the cash card from Oz, if needed. Everything worked out perfectly while in Australia! I highly recommend this service to anyone, especially as the rates were fantastic!Joanne in Texas

Overall, I have never had an issue picking up an order with Travelex. This time, I experienced an inconvenience which was minor, but could have been major if it weren't for the timing. I went to the Travelex office to pick up my order the day before I was leaving on a trip. I arrived before 6 p.m. and the store closed at 8 p.m., according to the site. When I arrived, there was a sign on the door that the store was temporarily closed and would reopen at 6:30 p.m. In the end, it ended up being a minor inconvenience to wait 30 minutes, but normally, when I pick up a Travelex order, I don't always have 30 minutes to wait. I usually stop by on my way to work or during lunch because it's the only opportunity I have to go. I understand that staff may need to get dinner or leave for a moment, but there should be more than one person available to assist in that case.Vanessa
The agent at the counter in SFO was very helpful. He gave us good information so that we could purchase the currency online and receive it at the convenient location in the airport. The process was easy and smooth.AR
Such an easy procedure. Way easier than goig downtown in my lunchbreak or dealing at the airport.Susan Coakley
Very helpful people at Travelex.Travelex user
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.
