A deep dive on pesos

The Mexican peso has evolved from the 15th century Spanish dollar, and was considered legal tender in the US until 1857. In 1993, the Bank of Mexico introduced the nuevo peso (new peso) to help combat years of inflation and devaluation. 1,000 old pesos became 1 new peso, with the ‘nuevo’ dropped in 1996.

More info about pesos

The most commonly used bills for Mexican pesos are the $20, $50, $100, $200, $500 and $1000. It’s a good idea to try to hold on to small change as sometimes it will be difficult to get larger bills broken. Explore the exchange rate history of pesos against the dollar, or head to our Travelex hub for top tips and insider guides to the nation.

Thinking about the rate is just one consideration when it comes to getting your foreign currency, but don’t worry because we’re here to help make things really simple for you.

  1. Check the rates – Use our handy currency rate tracker to check how rates change over time 
  2. Think about how much you need – Your budget will help you to work out just how much you need to take with you, depending on how long you’re going for, how many of you are going and how big of a spender you are!
  3. How you want to get your money – If lining up to get your money isn’t your style, then you can order your currency to be delivered direct to your door. Alternatively, if you like to see a friendly face when you get your money, you can pick up at one of our stores across the US.

Easy Purchase, but disappoint in pick up locations

It was very easy to purchase the currency. Was disappointed that the Travelex location at 18th and JFK in the city that I walk by every day was not on the list of pick up locations. I ended up having the currency shipped for a fee which I would have like to avoid.

I got very lucky that someone had returned with excess SA rands. As a result, I was able to avoid a delivery fee. Always a nice surprise.

Travelex made it very easy to pick up Euros before I left for Europe. I didn't want to go out of the country without some cash on hand in case I had any problems with my bank card. I will definitely use this service again next time I travel internationally.

Great for foreign currency

Great for foreign currency, was able to get some currency for my recent trip and they provided equal denominations and very fast shipping, will definitely be using them next time I need foreign currency for travel.

Perfect for our Trip

Travelex was easy tonuse and we had no issues with the card being accepted where we shopped/dined. The only issue we had was paying at the pump for gas, however we were able to use inside at the register. We would use (and reccommend) Travelex again for our next international trip.
