Sales person at Travelex desk was…

Sales person at Travelex desk was patient, pleasant and helpful, but I did not realize until after I'd committed to the currency exchange that the rate quoted, which was quite a bit better than the Travelex online rate, would float until the currency was received, rather than being locked in when ordered. The ultimate exchange rate when currency arrived several days later was several percent less favorable than I'd been quoted. I should have ordered online and locked in.

Quick, easy, showed up next day at my door. Way better than getting foreign currency at the airport. Great job!!


The agent was wonderful

The agent was wonderful. She even called before my arrival to make sure she wouldn’t be on her lunch break when I arrived. It was quick and easy, the service was friendly!

Really like the convenience of on-line ordering, but too many fees and lowered exchange rates at the kiosks. Seems excessive!

Ordered on Monday and it came on Wednesday. Very good service.

The initial order process was…

The initial order process was concerning because the funds where taken from bank but the email said there was issues with data provide and security problems. Never having used travelex I was nervous about a scam. I called and was told my order was canceled with no explanation, but the money was not returned, very confusing. However, the next day I was called by Travelex and they apologized, completed the security screening and the rest of the process was completed effectively. I received my fund on schedule.

Thomas Simpson

Easy, efficient.

This is our third request for "spending money" for travel to a foreign destination. Request on-line was efficient, credit card was charged and equivalent cash in a functional distribution of denominations was sent by UPS and received within ten days (both prior attempts were even faster). Other attempts, through a local bank, were more tedious and expensive.


Travelex is Great!

Travelex made the currency exchange process so easy. Order online and get your currency at your door the next day! Thank you, Travelex, I will do business again with you!
