They gladly helped me fix my own mistake

I ordered currency for the day of my flight, showed up to the airport, and showed them my reservation info. Apparently I had ordered the currency for the Friday of next week and they didn't have it ready for me. So instead they went to all their other branches to collect the money and bring it to me. They definitely didn't have to do this, but they saved me a lot of stress by helping me. It was definitely a five star customer service experience.

Fast, easy, convenient

Travelex was fast, easy and convenient. I used their online service to order my foreign currency a week before my trip abroad. They give a very good exchange rate and will buy back unused money if you wish. I received my money within 3 days by UPS. This was much easier, convenient and cheaper than getting my currency at the airport abroad and a lower exchange rate. I would recommend them to anyone.
