All went well

All went well, except i couldn't change or transfer location for pickup. I also couldn't have delivery hold at their office for a convenient pickup due to orders from travelex. Had to take a day off to wait for delivery.

The transaction was fine but found out once we got to Mexico that the exchange rate was not nearly as competitive as I expected. I got 16.8 pesos to dollar with a 1% United discount at Travelex but got 18.4 at an ATM machine here. The Cambios which are the worse for exchange are giving 17.0 so in the future I probable will not use the Travelex.

I was worried about security of receiving cash through the mail. The exchange went very swiftly and safely. I knew what was happening with my money until the minute I received the foreign currency in exchange. It was very convenient.

Travelex is very convenient to use while traveling. My husband has used his card to get cash from Italian ATMs with no issue. My reason for deducting one star is that sometimes I have difficulty signing into the website to reload the card or check balances. I'm never exactly sure of what the issue is but it usually won't take my login or password and I KNOW they are correct. I come back a bit later and it works ok.

Such an easy process

Such an easy process! Money came in plenty of time for our trip in many denominations. Exchange rate was very fair. I would do this again.

I wanted to avoid the fees at the airport, so i ordered Pesos with the 9.99 shipping, a week ahead of time. It took longer for my order to be reviewed than I thought, but it arrived within 2 days as expected, and I avoided the time and energy I would have spent at the airport exchanging money. AWESOME service, thank you!
