Always on time, always good rates

I travel to Mexico several times a year. Living far from there, there are no exchange houses, so I order pesos online. I get excellent rates, the currency denominations selected by Travelex for my ordered amount are always sensible, and the shipping is fast.

This was a great experience

This was a great experience. I was able to order my money online. I chose the country money and the amount I personally required. The process took about 15 minutes. I received the money within 3 days of ordering. Upon receiving the money by FEDEX it was well packed. I would recommend Travelex to anyone.

Good options of aquiring currency online or in person at a kiosk location

I like and appreciate the ability to order foreign currency online and have it shipped to my home or office, as compared to utilizing the Kiosk stores that are usually found in the airports. The exchange rates ordering from online was much more affordable/cheaper than from the physical store locations and for me a significant money saver.
