I placed my order online

I placed my order online, two weeks in advance. After the TSA security check, I went to your booth, presented my ID, and it was ready and waiting. The transaction took less than 5 minutes. The Travelex rep was courteous and knowledgeable, and service was prompt and quick. I will use this service again.
