Great customer service and so helpful. I have never been overseas before and I was told about the travelex site to order money on line and I was really please with the help I received from the customer service people on line and then when I picked up my money from the agent she was so helpful and really gave heaps of helpful tips. Made the process so easy.

The website is very easy to read and navigate and the exchange rates are consistently better than any of the big banks…. I know this because I once worked for one of the major banks! I would only ever use Travelex for my overseas cash requirements

Staff at Top Ryde store most helpful and offered good rates, considering current situation with dollar. My only complaint with topping up travel card is that you are not able to do direct bank credit. Only option is card (fees) or Bpay ( 3 days to load).


Simplicity and Ease

The lady who helped me, really did! It was such an easy transaction in every way.

I was happy with the ease of using travelex and their good rates. Only feedback I'd like to give to travelex is when getting currency delivered to home addresses is that it should be registeted as to require a signature on delivery as my money was just left at my front door for anyone to steal.
