My experiences with Travelex have been outstanding. They have responded promptly to my currency needs and provided the materials needed to return currency at the end of our foreign travels. Their service has definitely had a positive effect on our travel experience.Gary Burlingame
I found it helpful to have the Brasilian Reals but I also found that a few smaller than 50's would have worked better. . People often didn't have change..Harriet Mendelsohn
Thanks so much - I had never used this option before and found it quite seamless. I did worry that the time I wanted to pick up was when the counter was closed. I am not sure what would happen in that scenarioLuisa
Fast. Safe. Polite.SM
No problems. Great exchange rate. Moderate fee. Beautiful currency!! Only complaint is i wish i had requested many different denominations of my country's paper money, but it all worked out perfectly. Also, i wish there was a way to charge this purchase without it being a "cash advance" on my credit card; but overall a very good experience and business transaction.Joseph Mann
I do all transactions online without a hitch.John Bell
I received my order extremely fast! The website is so easy to order from.Emily
Dealing with Travelex was such an easy process. I am fairly new to the computer process of on-line purchasing. It was so easy. We went to the airport to pick up our purchase and that was just as easy. Free parking and in and out in less than 15 minutes! I will definitely use them again and will absolutely refer them to anyone who is in need of their services. Thank you for such a positive experience.Bonnie Zanger

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.
