Always easy using Travelex for your travel money needs!Brewster
Buying foreign currency was easy and stress free. Money arrived on time and even included an option for returning unused currency. Thanks.Dr. Dave
I found the online currency order form simple and efficient. Confirmation time for my order was relatively quick, and delivery of the currency I ordered arrived on schedule. I likely will use Travelex US again.Bruce Popka
Requesting currency conversion was quick and easy with Travelex. There were several choices for currency delivery. My chosen method worked very well and they delivered just as they stated. They delivered early morning and I still had the entire day to do what I needed to do without waiting around for my package. I will refer them to anyone I know who will be traveling abroad.Sandra Hayes
Very easy purchase online and great communication via email. Thanks!J Myers
I always use Travelex when I need foreign currency either by shopping in person if convenient or ordering online. I have never had a bad experience either way.Doreen
Easy to use website Great serviceLynn Sullivan
Very easy to use and pick up. Money at the bank.Maureen Armstrong
easy to order.. and quick fulfillment and delivery.. very satisified.denise
Everything was straightforward and easy to understand so that I could order online. Only thing I dislike is being unable to track my package because the order confirmation doesn’t give a tracking number (understandably). But there is no follow up email to give a tracking number and I’m someone who likes to track the real live updates on any shipments.Ramirez
Where is the tracking # in the email?Cherre Terry
Travelex was by far the most convenient method of procuring foreign currency that I've used to date. The website was very user friendly. The whole process was most efficient.David Roylance
Great transaction. Ordered online, picked up in person, right on time.Lisa Reinhold
I ordered 100 euros. The order was filled within a few hours although I gave your company three days to fill it! 😁. I wish it had been fulfilled in 20 euro bills instead of two 50s, though. I understand using big bills if we had ordered a larger amount. Since we ordered a small amount, it would have been better for us to get some or all of it in smaller denominations.Lisa Smith
Very convenient to order online, but the exchange rate is not very good.BR
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.
