Foreign Exchange

Are you planning the trip of a lifetime?

We’ve got you covered if you need foreign exchange. If you’re traveling to the UK or the USA, you’ll be able to buy your sterling and dollars in all of our offices. For other currencies, use our Click & Collect option.

Click & Collect - Members please note your account must be active & have up-to-date proof of address and proof of ID before we can process any FX transaction.

There is no commission fee if you order your currency online. Once you order before 12 pm your currency will be available the next working day (remember to check opening hours for the office you’ll collect from).

You can pay by cash or card for your currency and payment will be taken when you collect your foreign exchange.
