Super easy to use

Super easy to use; convenient to order in advance. Would be helpful to improve navigation of mobile version of website when adding value to money card. Not a huge obstacle. Money card is definitely most convenient; read up on ATM fees in destination country.

Great fast service

Great fast service. I find it more convenient to get currency before I travel rather than via ATM overseas. Just returned fron 2 week tour of Europe. Several people in te group had bad experiences with ATMs over there.

I have had good service on the phone when I have called and it has provided ease of use and efficiency in my travel. I do have one concern. I received a gift card from Amazon and if Travelex is sharing my information with Amazon, I want to know it!

very convenient

I loaded the card with Euros, then used it throughout my trip to pay expenses. This is much better than carrying cash. I only encountered one restaurant that didn't accept the card - they only accepted VISA.

Frequently asked questions

Back to top
  • How do you convert currencies?

    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.

  • Why do different places convert currencies at different rates?

    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.

  • Why do currency conversion rates change?

    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.

  • Is there a good time to convert currency?

    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.

  • How do I convert my money?
