Need an app to use iPad
Couldn’t put my order through on my iPad. Phoned Travelex spoke to a nice young man who told me to download Google Chrome which I did. Put my order in paid through BPay. On the receipt it said they would send me an email when the money had been delivered to the Post Office. That didn’t happen had to phone Post Office to check money was there and then went to collect it.Vivienne

Great service. Order online and collect at the airport.diana cross
After ordering and paying online I collected the currencies at my local country PO . It was in a well sealed clear plastic envelope when I picked it up. PO staff were not interested in checking it with me when I picked it up, just checking my ID. However It was 100% correct for the three currencies I had ordered. Package was waiting for me at the PO on the day I had ordered it in a variety of denominations of the currencies I had ordered. Exchange rate on the day I ordered it was better than my bank was offering. I would use Travelex again. They fulfilled what they said on their website. Would give them five stars if ..... a. Their exchange rate was even better and b. I was allowed to choose the denominations.RAB
