The person working at Travelex was very good and showed us how to look for counterfeit money. The only thing I didn't think was good was the lack of small notes available. While we were given a solution it involved going to the airport and obtaining smaller notes with a receipt. Even a couple of smaller notes would have been good at the point of purchase.

The process is easy and the delivery quick. The exchange rate could be marginally better but it is not ridiculous.

No Hassles Getting Foreign Cash and Money Cards

The exchange rate offered was marginally better than the others that we looked at. The required identification and the process were explained; and the money/cards were available when and where they said they would be.
