I am a first time customer. I checked out the West Lakes (SA) booth and spoke to the service officer before actually ordering online for collection there. I was worried about getting high denomination Euro notes but she said they don't use higher than 50 Euro notes. I ordered for collection in a week's time but the order was available in about 3-4 days. I rang ahead to ensure the booth was open. The transaction was handled by the same officer I had met previously and she handled the transaction very professionally. I was pleased to receive with brand new notes.Denis Toohey

Timely delivery and good customer service
Money ordered was available before the date requested. The staff dispensing the money noticed a small defect in one of the banknotes and was able to replace it with a note without damage hopefully saving the possibility of embarassment while travelling.Chris Howard

Buying cash currency on Bpay with…
Buying cash currency on Bpay with Travelex is the best option. Better rates, and easy to pickup. I've been doing it for years, and I think its great. I'm surprised that other frequent travellers don't bother and buy all their currency last minute at the airport, or muck around with putting currency on these airline frequent flyer cards. The entry & exit rates are terrible. And they always complain about it. So its easy, just plan ahead, and Bpay your cash foreign currency.W M
