Traveling to Costa Rica
An action-packed guide to your trip to Costa Rica. themselves.Read more >
The service was great in the U.S. however we had some issues contacting anyone from abroad. We traveled to Italy and only found one Travelex ATM. The card worked great at all merchants. A few of the bank ATMs would not take the card. The couple that we were traveling with had some real issues with reloading funds and could not reach any tech support. I was able to load my card with no problem. I would definitely use and recommend this card again.Ellen Schuring
App made it really easy to reload. Keeping the card for next time I travel.Lindsey Most
Overall it was quick and easy, only 24 hour notice was given, my money was ready to go when I got there, and they gave it to me in a variety of bills. It does cost a little more money than getting it through the bank, but way less notice was needed, so for me it was worth the extra costMadeline
Very helpful staff. It was a little far for me to drive. I probably would have saved a little money if I had waiting to get cash because of the exchange rate. Because this was my first time, I needed the peace of mind.Dolly

It was our first time traveling outside of the continental US. We were recommended to this company by a friend. I will have no reservations in referring this company to my family and friends.Johnny Black

Very easy and convenient to useEarl Sawyer
Easy to use. Perfect solutionIan Gershman
I found the ease of setting up currency on the MC very easy. The pin number gave me some heartburn at first however, the online FAQ's assisted me in getting my pin number by calling. I reloaded the card once while overseas and that was a breeze. I would do this again next time I travel overseas.Angela Budde
I like Travelex !~!. .Because My Kids live in Canada So when they need something other than a gift for a special occasion.I can send them money $$$ and then when in minutes it's there !~!. . The other thing "I" like about Travelex is when I send the Money $$$ it's ALREADY in Canadian dollars at the exchange rate automatically!. There's no going to the bank to exchange the American dollar for there currency EVERYTHING IS DONE AT ONE TIME EVEN AT THE WINDOW AT MY BANK OR ONLINE !. .BATTY A BING... BATTY A Boom. .It's THERE !. .I ALREADY. .I had two (2) of my Friends get a Travelex cards to travel when they went on vacation to Mexico and they were both pleased with the " No Hassel ". .going to a Mexican bank...

Really convenient to be able to order currency on-line and pick it up at a branch near my office.Margery
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.
