Great service- fast delivery !! You can’t go wrong with this company !Stephanie Lockridge
Overall great experience. Smooth and easy, very professional customer service. I wish there would have been one more e mail notice during the time my order was under review. Otherwise I was very satisfied. Discovered a Travelex kiosk at my return airport and was able to resell all my excess foreign cureency including coins. Nice!Mark
The bank where I chose to make the pickup was really hard to park at but that's not Travelex's fault. The ordering process was easy and the people in the bank were very nice. Of course, I wish the exchange rate had been better but having a little local currency before you arrive in a foreign country is critical.Linda
I placed my order via my debit card and it arrived next day UPS. Everything was secure. The only thing I would check and see what the exchange rate is that day. I am just curious how much of my transaction was profit. . The service was exceptional.Robert Von Haase

This card option was wonderful! My teenage daughter used it while traveling abroad to two different countries. I was able to easily load more funds and transfer them when she changed destinations. I highly recommend it!Maricela KOOPMANN

When my promotion code wasn't working management credit the money to my bank account. I just wish my Bill's were smaller.Keniya
It was the easiest transaction I've made in a long time exchanging foreign currency. I ordered and the next day it was delivered on time as promised. I will recommend it to my friends should they need to exchange money.Monika de Haas
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.
