The web site is easy to use. Very efficient. We have used Travelex for about 10 years, for currencies all over the world, and have never had a problem of any sort. They are reliable.Carmen
No problems whatsoever with our order!Rita W.
Travelex is very convenient to use while traveling. My husband has used his card to get cash from Italian ATMs with no issue. My reason for deducting one star is that sometimes I have difficulty signing into the website to reload the card or check balances. I'm never exactly sure of what the issue is but it usually won't take my login or password and I KNOW they are correct. I come back a bit later and it works ok.Catitud
Such an easy process! Money came in plenty of time for our trip in many denominations. Exchange rate was very fair. I would do this again.Grammy
I wanted to avoid the fees at the airport, so i ordered Pesos with the 9.99 shipping, a week ahead of time. It took longer for my order to be reviewed than I thought, but it arrived within 2 days as expected, and I avoided the time and energy I would have spent at the airport exchanging money. AWESOME service, thank you!SHAWN HIESTAND

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.
