I placed my order online

I placed my order online, two weeks in advance. After the TSA security check, I went to your booth, presented my ID, and it was ready and waiting. The transaction took less than 5 minutes. The Travelex rep was courteous and knowledgeable, and service was prompt and quick. I will use this service again.

Super Easy and Efficient

The process was super easy and efficient. I picked the delivery day so that I could ensure I would be home. I removed one star as it would be great if we can select the denominations. Its very hard to change large bills in Mexico and would have preferred smaller denominations.
