Whether you’re abroad making a call home or vice versa, Travelex has a range of domestic and international phone cards that make calling significantly cheaper. They are available to use in 60 countries, with 24-hour assistance if necessary.
Currency buy back guarantee
There’s nothing worse than having currency left over when you get back from your trip abroad, only to find the exchange rate has gone down and you won’t get the same value for your money as you did when exchanging in the first place. For an extra fee, Travelex can secure the exchange rate, ensuring that if you do need to ‘buy back’ your currency, you’ll get the same rate as you paid.
If you need to transfer money abroad, Travelex has teamed up with Western Union to provide this.
Widely accepted across the world, travellers cheques allow you to exchange them for currency at your destination, or use them to pay for things whilst you are abroad.
There are over 1,500 Travelex outlets in airports and tourist locations across 26 countries.

Travelex was founded by Lloyd Dorfman in 1976. By 2000, it had expanded considerably, buying Thomas Cook’s foreign exchange division. However, by 2010 the company had experienced significant losses as a result of interest payments on large debts. Following the losses, the company sold various parts of its business, such as its money transfer operation to Western Union and it’s card payment division to Mastercard in order to help reduce debts.
