Book online!

Book online! Hey, so you all should definitely order the money online and then pick it up because then there are no admin fees that everyone else complains about with travelex. I couldn't order with my bank because they were very strict about coming in person twice exactly two business days apart which I can't do because I travel for work. So, I had to go through travelex. It was an extremely easy experience and their rate was only .01 different from my bank. Overall great service and I would recommend it to anyone as it was very convenient to order online and pick up my money in person.

Great customer service saved this rating

My order was delayed by a few days due to the flight delay and I almost didn't get my order in time for my trip. But thankfully, the customer service representative helped me and my order arrived just in time before my trip. I think the travelex should reconsider their shipping vendor so weekend deliveries can be an option.

Travelex makes it so easy

Travelex makes it so easy. There is really no excuse to travel without pre-purchasing the currency.

They are Great, BUT...

They are Great. The only thing I would have a reservation with is the delivery. Last year it was delivered to my door and required my signature and ID from the UPS. This year when it was delivered it was left at the garage door. I almost missed seeing the envelope. I was waiting for the delivery, but we never heard the delivery truck or anything. I would make sure that it requires your signature since it is MONEY! I don't know what happened, but I will make sure when I order next time that I tell them about my experience.

Travelex makes it easy to handle currency exchanges. I like being able to use a debit card at stores in Europe (not carrying as much cash). I can easily add more funds to Travelex from my US bank account.
