Excellent service all around from the ordering to the lovely person at the Travelex branch to receive the order. Order arrived ahead of time at the branch and collection was entirely painless. I had trouble initially seeing on the website that I had missed a required field in the form was the only minor glitch in the process, due to the colouring of the submit button it looked like the form was ready to submit when it wasn't however reading top to bottom would have helped in the first place. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this service to others.

Everything was great except the delivery date by the contractor. I asked for a particular date when I was going to be home but the delivery contractor's email indicated they were going to deliver on a different day. I complained to Travelex and fortunately they were able to get the package removed from the delivery van and then re-delivered on the day that I was home.
