Must-sees in Europe

  • Berlin
  • Rich in culture and history, Berlin overflows with great architecture, a supercool art scene and acres of history. Boasting all that, it's also still one of the cheapest capitals in Europe!
  • Paris
  • The city of love, lights and the most scrumptious croissants, Paris is one of the most famous cities in the world. Whether you soar the skies at the top of the Eiffel Tower, or roam the galleries at the Louvre Museum, there is something for everyone to explore and enjoy.
  • Santorini
  • The sparkling waters of the Aegean Sea welcome everyone to one of the most exquisite Greek islands. Magnificent views of traditional white-washed, blue-domed buildings, jagged cliff edges and vineyards make Santorini a Mediterranean must.

The Travelex credit card I purchased worked perfectly and so was highly convenient. I found that topping it up via the Travlex website was straightforward. I appreciate a good product and good service which made my travel considerably less stressful - once I had tried the card and fohnd it worked!

The idea of ordering money online was quite easy but I did not receive a notification when my cash was ready to collect and I had to follow up. The cash had bee delivered 2 days earlier than original planned which meant my post office was about to send it back. Thankfully they hadn't sent it back or else that could have caused major inconvenience when our trip is only a few days away
