Back home from your trip with leftover currency?

Feeling sad that your vacation is over? Bring some sunshine back into your day by returning your leftover currency to us and exchanging it back into US dollars!

If you’re worried about all that extra hassle, don’t be! It really couldn’t be a simpler process to exchange your money back with Travelex, leaving you with more time to ease back into the swing of everyday life.

What to do with currency?

There are a few options available to you if you have a significant amount of foreign currency, and aren’t sure what to do with it. You can either sell the currency back to us as soon as you wish, or you could hold on to the currency with two objectives in mind. The first would be to watch our rates and decide to sell the currency back to us when you feel the rate is at its best. The second would be to keep your currency safe until you decide to travel to that region or country again.

How to sell currency

We will buy back your currency and pay you US dollars. All you have to do is:

  1. Decide how much currency you want to sell back to Travelex.
  2. Choose to mail through your currency, or visit one of our 200 retails stores across the country.
  3. Receive US dollars back in the form of a check or in cash, based on the day’s rate.

  • Can I sell my foreign currency to Travelex?

    Yes! In the vast majority of cases, we’ll buy your foreign currency from you. You can either visit a Travelex Store or you can send your currency to us.

  • Do you purchase all currencies?

    We purchase most major currencies, but unfortunately we're not able to purchase some foreign currencies.

    We can purchase Bahamian Dollars (BSD) and Russian Rubles (RUB) only if we sold this currency to you. Please include the receipt for your purchase from Travelex when returning your bills.

    We’re also unable to accept any legacy currencies from the countries now using the euro. If you want to double check which countries are using the euro, visit the European Central Bank.
