The official currency in Colombia is the peso - abbreviated to COP. Like many of the other South American pesos, 1 Columbian peso is divided into 100 centavos.
Pesos have been used in Colombia since 1810 when they replaced the use of the real. The central bank in Colombia is the Banco de la República, which issues the peso.
Since 2001 the Colombian Senate has been discussing the possibility of introducing a new peso worth 1000 old pesos, in a bid to streamline the amount of zeros currently recited on coins and banknotes.
What to spend your peso on**:
A cup of coffee
Local bottle of beer
3 course meal for 2

Are US dollars accepted in Colombia?
While there may be a handful of places that accept USD as a form of payment, unlike many other South American nations, the majority of Colombia does not accept US dollars; therefore it’s recommend to change AUD into pesos before heading off to Columbia.

Money arrived quickly and on time
Money arrived quickly and on time - only reservation ordered 200 USD and one note was a 100 dollar note which I would have expected in a large order not a smaller oneGavin Bryant

The currency was available for pick up…
The currency was available for pick up on the stated date, but I had to ring Travelex for advice on completing part of their online form which was a bit frustrating.Patti
Simple process online
Simple online ordering process. Picked it up from the post office nearby. All easy. I have previously picked up at the airport which is arguably even more convenient but I changed money for 7 people and needed to be sure there would be no issues. I wouldn’t have had any qualms if we were changing to US UK Euro but I was getting Norwegian and Danish currency. Rate acceptable. Not great but ok if changing small amounts under 10,000. If converting larger amounts there are better platforms such as XE.com. I always use Travelex for travel cash. Many years ago I used the CBA but the rates offered were poor and the process was too difficult.davdent
The entire process was quick and easy. Once ordered online it was at my post office on the date I asked for. Will definitely use again.sandra

Easy to order , great variety of currency. Won't have to order too early and convenience local pickup.Sonia
Very easy to use system
Very easy to use the online ordering system and pick-up at local Post Office. Rate was the same as others. Down side was the large denomination notes received - I would like to be able to pick denomination sizes that suit the type of travel e.g. small USD for South America, Asia.IKS
very easy to do and very good experienceTrent Daunt
An excellent service from Travelex
I was out of Melbourne on holiday and needed some Japanese Yen for a flight to Japan on the day of my return. I ordered on line at competent exchange rates and I could choose where I wanted to collect the cash. I received an email when the cash was available for collection. The staff at Travelex were expecting me and the cash was there waiting for collection.Charles
