Super fast on delivery and received my order when I needed it and the website was super easy to navigate through. Definitely using this service again when I plan on leaving the country

Megan Haskin

Convenience worth the rate

Convenience worth the rate! I never knew I could order currency online - and have it delivered! I was told I could buy currency at my local airport, only to learn they didn't have what I needed on-site. The airport kiosk of Travelex advised of the online option, and I'm so grateful! The exchange rate wasn't as favorable as the arrival airport, but the peace of mind was worth it! My currency arrived on time and was perfectly distributed across denominations. Thanks, Travelex!

Cash Passport Easy to Use

Travelex makes international travel easier. I like being able to add money to my cash passport Mastercard, then change the unused funds back from euros to US$ without incurring extra fees. I never have to worry about running out of money when I'm traveling.
