You should always seek your own medical advice and regularly check official sources for information on Coronavirus.
As of 16 June 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) is uncertain how long COVID-19
can survive on surfaces.1 On 18 April 2020, the WHO stated that ‘There is currently
no evidence to confirm or disprove that coronavirus can be transmitted through coins or banknotes”.2.
You can keep up to date with the latest on what the World Health Organisation are saying.3
According to Department of Health NSW Government COVID-19 is thought to spread through
various ways, including through close, person-to-person contact.4
Banknotes which are received into Travelex systems should be assumed to be low risk as
they will be in mint condition or if pre-used, will not have been handled for a significant period.
For more information on Coronavirus and for instructions on what to do, check official sources
such as visiting the Australian Department of Health website5, call the National Coronavirus
Health Information Line on 1800 020 080 (in Australia), or contact your local health authorities.
There is no proof that touching bank notes poses any additional opportunity to catch COVID-19. The CDC has stated that the virus has poor survivability on surfaces such as packaging, and therefore the risk of infection is low (ref. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html).
A Travelex Money Card is just like any debit or credit card, and needs to be activated online by yourself before it can be used.
Unfortunately, we cannot currently deliver cash currency. However, we are working on this and hope to soon be able to deliver cash currency once again right to your front door! You can still order online and collect from one of our selected Travelex stores.
