VERY GOOD SERVICE

VERY GOOD SERVICE. I ordered online. It took a little figuring to understand the options of where to pick up my currency while online, but once at the international terminal at the airport, the Travelex locations were super clear to identify, and extremely convenient. It might be helpful to let people know that coming back to the country (from UK) Travelex won't exchange coins. So it's to your advantage to either spend the coins or get bills before you come back to the US

I really enjoyed using this card by Travelex

I really enjoyed using this card by Travelex. There were places we were at where only had tap and go and this card worked wonderfully on these machines. It was easy to refill online while we were away. I would use again.

You have to pay extra for the currency values you want. Stupid rule but I refused to pay extra. Service was excellent though.
