TRAVEL MONEY - HOLIDAY MONEY

Download to Excel

Please find below a list of Travel Money companies where you can purchase holiday money or foreign currency in cash to take with you abroad on holiday or other foreign trips. It is really important that you plan your travel money in advance. Do not leave getting your travel money until you get to the airport because you are unlikely to get the best exchange rates and there can also be expensive commission fees. The amount of travel money you will get depends on the exchange rates which change daily. Online travel money companies can get you the most for your money. They can offer some of the best exchange rates possible. Some travel money companies offer home delivery; so your holiday money will arrive by courier to your house. Please take time to look at the delivery methods and the associated charges, so that you can pick which travel money company fits you best. Use the table below to help you find the best travel money company for you.

Order your travel money in advance and you can get some of the best exchange rates and have it delivered straight to your door.

Going on Holiday? How are you going to spend your money when you get there?

If you are planning a holiday or trip overseas then you will want to think about how you will spend your money once you are there. Before you go abroad it is important to be prepared because you will want to make sure that you have some cash in hand when you get there. You do not want to be in a situation where cards aren’t accepted and you don’t have the right currency.

Most people when travelling abroad assume that the easiest method of buying foreign currency is by changing cash at the airport or through a bureau de change. However, the commission fees involved in these processes are often high and the exchange rate usually poor so you won’t be getting the best deal for your money. Planning ahead is important. Travel money companies offer services where you can buy foreign currency in advance so that you are prepared for when you are abroad, whether it’s for holiday or business purposes. The amount of currency that your money will get depends on the exchange rate, which can vary from day to day. Keep checking back for the latest exchange rates to get a good deal on your money.

Why order your travel money in advance?

By pre-ordering your currency you can make big savings, especially if you take the time to find the best deal on exchange rates. Travel money companies can give you access to some of the best exchange rates. You can order your currency online, over the phone or through a local branch. It is really easy to apply online, simply fill out an online application form.

A great thing about ordering money in advance is that is stress free and can suit you. You can get your holiday money delivered straight to your home or office or you may prefer to pick it up at the airport. When ordering foreign money online you not only save money overall, but avoid queuing and making unnecessary journeys to exchange your money. A great thing about travel money companies is that if you come back with money unspent they can buy back your remaining cash without commission but make sure you check this in advance.

What you need to remember

If you want larger amounts of money or require a more unusual currency you may have allow for more time. Commission charges may vary but there are many providers who do not charge commission on most currencies. Many companies will offer free delivery but this might be only for orders over a certain amount. Some companies will charge a small fee for next day delivery.

Finding the right Travel Money Company

Before you exchange your money through travel money providers it is advisable to do enough research as rates fluctuate daily and between each provider. When buying currency you should consider delivery times and methods as well as the exchange rate and check for any charges. You will be charged a delivery fee if you choose the option of using a courier to deliver your money however as the easiest and most stress-free option this is frequently considered a small price to pay. Also choose the company best suited to your travel money needs.
